Saints bounce back from an upsetting loss against the Rams with an exciting payback win in the Superdome against the Bucs 27- 16. In a previous post I predicted that the Saints would win by more than 10 points against the Bucs, and I was glad to see that come true! With this win the Saints maintained the lead in the NFC South Division with a record of 6-3. The Saints seem to have had that swagger in this defeat against Bucs in the Superdome(must have something to do with the Throwback jerseys) and kept the streak of winning every home game. According to NFL.com, several Saints players applauded coach Sean Payton’s decision to distribute baseball bats as motivational props leading up to the game, a now recurring ritual Payton reserves for times when he wants to challenge his team to play with a stronger physical presence. I could feel the motivation and attitude of the Saint’s players through my tv! Drew Brees threw for 258 passing yards and the offense gained 195 yards on the ground unlike last week against the Rams only gaining 56 yards. Defense played well and pressured Buc’s quarterback Josh Freeman only allowing 1 touchdown and 3 field goals even with some bad Ref calls. Starting cornerback, Tracy Porter, left the game early with a neck injury. As of today, Coach Payton said all news on Porter is positive but he is dealing with neck and chest soreness. Saints’ offense had a great performance with Lance Moore, Darren Sproles, and Pierre Thomas each scoring a touchdown. Tampa Bay dropped down to third place in the NFC South Division with the loss to the Saints. The Saints remain a half game ahead of the Atlanta Falcons who are 5 – 3. Saints visit Atlanta next Sunday in another crucial game and NFC South showdown. I’m confident that the Saints will go to the Georgia Dome ready to play and kill some dirty birds! WHO DAT!!
