    We will see if last weeks game against Dallas was an anomaly. People keep forgetting New Orleans doesn't have any blue chip receivers...and imo this caught up to them last week in Dallas. Or maybe the Dallas defense is as good as advertised. Either way the Saints should have an easier time today against Tampa's 30th ranked defense. And Jameis Winston starting today? Fuck that. Give me the Saints by double digits.

    My Pick: New Orleans -9.5

    50% chance of rain for this game. That's about the only thing that's gonna stop the saints offense. Was leaning towards overs but rain makes me rethink it.

    Needless to say the Saints were just bad last week against Dallas on TNF. They will be extremely motivated to set the record straight on Sunday against the Buccs. They will be out for blood. Brees could throw for 400 yards to prove he's still an MVP and try to get rid of the taste of the crappiest game of his year....maybe even the worst of his last 5 years. Doesn't matter that the Buccs are playing better defense late in the year since they are facing the #2 offense. Winston can't hang with Brees and the defense will give him just enough pressure to force mistakes. This line has move all the way up to double digits but I feel just fine about laying money on the Superbowl contender Saints to cover. They may win this by 20 or more!

    My Pick: New Orleans -10

    The Bucs have a nice two-game win streak has some wind in their sails. New Orleans looked unstoppable until that Thursday night loss in Dallas where nothing went right all night. The Saints have had 10 days off to stew about it and I wouldn't want to be Tampa Bay right now. It's true the Bucs defense is humming with 24 sacks since Week 7, second most in the NFL. The most? New Orleans with 25. Saints are better in all facets. Prediction: New Orleans 34-21

    Bucs Nation: New Orleans Saints vs. Tampa Bay Buccaneers Recap: The Bucs Can't Hang On Against The Saints, 28-14


    Tampa Bay entered their matchup against the Saints looking to keep their slim playoff hopes alive for another week.

    There was plenty of reason for optimism after a strong first half of play had the Bucs in the lead by a score of 14-3, but a blocked punt and no second-half offense doomed the team.

    Outside of a bad drop by Peyton Barber on the first play, things couldn't have gone better for Tampa Bay on the first drive of the game. Winston came out and hit Mike Evans on a perfect deep ball for a 36-yard completion on the next play.

    Both team's seasons have taken drastic turns since that game. Tampa Bay currently sits at 5-7 on the season and the Saints are 10-2, but that doesn't mean the intensity will be absent from the field on Sunday.

    A win could drastically alter the course of the season for the Bucs. Can they get it done?

    The season is on the line. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers need to win to keep their already slim playoff hopes alive. With Drew Brees and the New Orleans Saints coming to town. The outlook doesn't look good.

    Tampa Bay has already upset the Saints once this season thanks to an exceptional performance by Ryan Fitzpatrick. It will be Jameis Winston's turn to try and outduel Brees.

    Canal Street Chronicles: Saints at Buccaneers Matchups: New Orleans defense vs. Tampa Bay offense


    The New Orleans Saints opened the 2018 season with great expectations on the defensive side of the ball after a 2017 campaign where a disruptive young defense helped propel them to a division championship. An opening day 48-40 home loss to division rival Tampa Bay brought their defensive confidence down to earth a bit, and they would struggle on that side of the ball for the first month of the season, particularly against the pass. The Saints defense would rebound however, and in recent weeks have again been one of the more disruptive squads in the NFL.

    Fansided: Saints: Terron Armstead out for Week 14 in Tampa Bay

    The final Saints injury report for Week 14 was released on Friday, Dec. 7 and there was only one name on it of a player who won't suit up for the Saints on the road in Tampa this Sunday. But that player is left tackle Terron Armstead who's been dealing with a pectoral injury since the Bengals game in Week 10.

    It's not clear if Armstead is actually still dealing with anything related to his pectoral muscle injury or if the Saints just want to get him some extra rest. That wouldn't be a bad strategy with the schedule ahead of the Saints through December.

    The 5-7 Tampa Bay Buccaneers will be hosting the 10-2 New Orleans Saints this Sunday at Raymond James Stadium. Since the Buccaneers beat the Saints in week one, both teams have went in opposite directions.
