NEWS

Covers Preview - Fans of the New Orleans Saints and Tampa Bay Buccaneers might feel conflicted Sunday about whether to pull for their team to finish on a high note or play their way into a higher draft pick. The Buccaneers host the Saints in a season finale with no postseason implications, but the outcome could determine who gets the top choice in the draft. Tampa Bay is guaranteed to have one of the top two picks but would clinch the No. 1 choice with a loss.
