Today in the Daily Sports Roundup: The Pats and Bucs play overseas, the Colts try to beat up on the Rams, and the Cards travel east for a game with the Giants.

Colliding on the gridiron . . .

The Patriots and Buccaneers will take the field at London’s Wembley Stadium in early-afternoon NFL action on Sunday, with Tom Brady and company coming off a 59-0 rout of the Titans. The Bucs (0-6 SU, 1-5 ATS) will once again go for their first win of the season – they fell 28-21 to the Panthers in their last contest. Oddsmakers have pegged the Patriots (4-2 SU, 3-3 ATS) as big 15-point favorites for the overseas matchup, with the total for the game listed at 45 points.

Other 1:00pm ET games for Sunday afternoon: Green Bay (-9) at Cleveland, San Francisco at Houston (-3), San Diego (-5) at Kansas City, Minnesota at Pittsburgh (-5.5), and Indianapolis (-14) at St. Louis. The Colts (5-0 SU, 4-1 ATS) remained unbeaten with a 31-9 pasting of the Titans two weeks ago; Indy had a bye last week. The Rams (0-6 SU, 2-4 ATS) fell just short of their first victory of the season last time out, as the Jaguars booted an OT field goal in the 23-20 win.

The late afternoon games on Sunday feature Buffalo at Carolina (-7), the Jets (-6) at Oakland, Chicago at Cincinnati (pick’em), Atlanta at Dallas (-4), and New Orleans (-6.5) at Miami. The primetime matchup then has Arizona at the Giants (-7). The Cards (3-2 SU, 3-2 ATS) are coming off a 27-3 win over the Seahawks, with Kurt Warner throwing for 276 yards and two scores. The Giants (5-1 SU, 4-1-1 ATS) fell 48-27 to the Saints last weekend, losing for the first time this year.

Meeting up on the diamond . . .

The Yankees will try to close out the ALCS once again on Sunday night when they host the Angels in Game 6 with a 3-2 series lead. Andy Pettitte will get the ball for New York in this contest; lefthander Pettitte picked up a no-decision in the third game of the series, surrendering three earned runs on seven hits over his 6 1-3 innings of work. The Angels will counter with Joe Saunders on Sunday; lefthander Saunders gave up two earned runs over his seven innings in Game 2.

Taking a trip around the rink . . .

The National Hockey League offers up three games on Sunday, with San Jose at Philadelphia, Columbus at Los Angeles, and Edmonton at Vancouver. The Oilers and Canucks met in Edmonton on Monday night, with Nikolai Khabibulin making 39 saves in a 2-1 win for the home side. Patrick O’Sullivan and Sam Gagner had goals for the Oilers, while Steve Bernier had the lone Canucks tally in the defeat.

Roaring around the track . . .

Finally, the drivers of the Sprint Cup Series will take the track in the Tums Fast Relief 500 at Martinsville Speedway on Sunday afternoon. Jimmie Johnson will be gunning for his third consecutive victory, and he leads teammate Mark Martin by 90 points in the Chase standings heading into this event. Johnson has also won the last two races at Martinsville, and five of the last six events on the track. Jeff Gordon, who sits third in the standings, has seven career wins at Martinsville.
