New Orleans Saints

The Saints were overwhelmed by the Atlanta Falcons during their last matchup, eating up a 26-9 defeat. QB Drew Brees was choked up by the opponent’s defense. He did 32/45 with 287 passing yards and no thrown TDs. Alvin Kamara rushed only 4 carries for 24 yards. He also had difficulty penetrating the cement-wall defense. Michael Thomas definitely tried to adapt as the receivers’ leader. He caught the ball for an amazing 13 times, allowing the team to gain 152 yards. 

It was a humbling defeat for the New Orlean Saints, especially since they have been looked up to as one of the NFL leaders for this season. This is yet another warning for top-ranked teams not to be complacent versus the lower-ranked teams. The Saints only ran the ball 11 times out of 63 plays. They implemented an astoundingly low 18 first downs.

The Saints tried to make up for their lackluster offense with a solid defense but were still powerless versus 34 rush attempts. The Saints should muster their energy reserves and return to their top playing form to prevent the final four spots from sliding out of their reach.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers narrowly escaped the clutches of the Arizona Cardinals, securing a 30-27 win. QB Jamels Winston contributed 30/48 with 358 air yards. He capped a thrown TD and 2 interceptions. Peyton Barber supported him with 11 carries at 43 yards. He also exceeded his usual performance by scoring a rushing TD. Mike Evans held up the receiving end with 4 catches clocked at 84 yards.

The Buccaneers had the game figured out despite the tense shootout. They had an average defense, limiting the opponent at 62% throw completion rate. They were better equipped to stave off rush attempts, conceding only 18. The Buccaneers had superior yardage gained, scoring 457 yards as opposed to the opponent’s 417 yards.

The Buccaneers are a balanced team, and they can easily adjust to beef up their offense or defense. They better keep this flexibility consistent as they go deeper into this season in a bid to improve their win-loss record.
