The Saints entered Monday Night Football with two interceptions, seven total takeaways and a minus-14 turnover ratio. Saints linebacker Demario Davis picked Tom Brady on a pass intended for Chris Godwin, and with the Bucs near midfield in the final two minutes of the half.

It took away a Tampa Bay scoring chance and gave it to the Saints.

New Orleans receiver Jarvis Landry dropped what should have been a 19-yard touchdown on third down, leaving the Saints to settle for a 38-yard field goal by Wil Lutz with 20 seconds remaining in the half. The Saints lead the Bucs 10-3 at halftime.

The Bucs opened the game with a 16-play, 72-yard drive that ate 8:35 off the clock. They did not get into the end zone with the Saints stopping them at the 3, and Ryan Succop kicked a 21-yard field goal.

Tampa Bay had only 77 yards in the four drives after the opening drive.

Brady is 15-of-23 for 104 yards and his third interception of the season.

Andy Dalton has completed 8 of 13 passes for 142 yards and a touchdown. He threw a 30-yard score to Taysom Hill. Rashid Shaheed has three receptions for 71 yards.

The Saints have won four consecutive games at Raymond James Stadium, and they are halfway home tonight. They will receive the second half kickoff.

  1. Brady just sucks. Without question, NE made the right move. I cannot imagine paying him 30 million for this.

  2. First ballot HOF QB Russell Wilson wonders how can a QB not even engineer a TD?

    What’s GOAT stand for?

    Going Out Awfully Tired?

  3. The Buccaneers are terrible. None of the players are on the same page. Weird personell groupings, guys don’t know who to cover and general phoned in effort.

  4. He’s, like, suddenly turned into Russell Wilson. But without the pay. Shoulda stayed retired.

  5. These teams are lousy. I think Brady is irreverent, same as Dalton. I highly doubt whoever is that division winner will do anything in the playoffs, but on any given Sunday, right?

  6. How cute was that…6-6 and acting like they are a legitimate playoff team.🥱🥱🥱

  7. I thought a lot of these “Brady is washed” comments were foolish when I read them in real time, but post game, after another Brady comeback, they look downright ridiculous.
