These four Tampa Buccaneers will determine outcome of game vs. New Orleans Saints

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are set to take on their NFC South Division rival this Sunday night in a game that will feel similar to a postseason matchup.

The Buccaneers and Saints are currently separated by just a 0.5 game in the divisional standings and the winner of the matchup will take an early lead on potentially locking up the division.

As we continue to prepare for the biggest game of the season to this point for Tampa Bay, here are four Buccaneers who will determine the outcome Sunday night against New Orleans.

Tom Brady

Let’s go ahead and get the most obvious out of the way first.

The Buccaneers are living and dying by Tom Brady and that shouldn’t come as any surprise. If Brady turns the ball over a couple of times- like he did in the last matchup- and throws a pick-six, it will be extremely difficult, potentially impossible, for the Bucs to win.

If he plays up to his potential and continues to throw accurate passes and use his playmakers to his advantage, though, we could be talking about a much different story.

The outcome of this game rides on the shoulders of Tom Brady in a lot of facets and it will be interesting to see exactly what he is able to do against that Saints defense.
