Saints-Bucs Sunday Preview
The New Orleans Saints return home this week for a Sunday afternoon matchup in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome against division rivals Tampa Bay.
It’s been a rollercoaster season for the Buccaneers and the Saints as both two clubs come into this weekend’s matchup clinging to very slim playoff hopes.
The two teams met earlier this season in Tampa, where the Saints escaped with a wild 35-28 victory in a game that featured a dramatic goal-line stand by the Saints’ defense and a game-tying touchdown by the Bucs waved off due to a penalty on the last play of the game.
New Orleans and Tampa have split their last twelve meetings, and the Saints are looking to sweep the Bucs for the first time since 2006.
