New Orleans Saints vs. Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Setting the tone

Bucs LB Lavonte David got a third-down sack on the Saints’ opening drive to get things going for Tampa’s defense.

On the dot

Dalton showed off his arm before the first quarter ended, completing a 40-yard pass to Rashid Shaheed that got the Saints out of deep in their own territory and onto the other side of the field.

Want some touchdowns, Taysom?

Super utility man Taysom Hill got the Saints on the board when he snuck his way to get open along the sideline to make a 30-yard touchdown grab, giving them a 7-3 lead.

Runnin’ Rashid

The Saints’ rookie receiver continued to make plays to flip things around, but this time it was in the punt game. He returned a punt 42 yards to get New Orleans into Tampa territory.

Tom turning it over

Brady’s struggles against the Saints continued as he threw a pass right at linebacker Demario Davis for an interception on a promising drive before halftime.

Tampa turnover

Cam Jordan stepped up for the Saints to turn what would have been a third-down stop into a forced fumble and possession much further down the field.

Outstanding Olave

Saints rookie receiver Chris Olave has made big plays all season long and made another on a third down early in the fourth quarter, getting a 26-yard reception to move the sticks.
