The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have their long-awaited first battle with the Jameis Winston-led New Orleans Saints. Here’s how it will go for the Buccaneers.

Boy, the bucks sure I’ve had their fair share of reunion specials so far and the 2021 NFL season. First, it was the Tom Brady-Bill Belichick showdown, and now we get the Buccaneers facing Jameis Winston for the first time as opponents. Granted, the latter may not be quite on the same level as the former, but it’s significant in the hearts of Tampa Bay nonetheless.

If for some, let’s be fair, inexcusable circumstance you won’t be able to watch the game, or are just privy to the business of fortune-telling, here is your official spoiler alert on how this game will go.

When the Buccaneers face the New England Patriots, it was a knockdown, drag-out, brawl that ended up being very close due to the fact that Belichick and Brady know each other like the back of their collective hands. This game with the Saints may be a similar situation, but let’s be honest, Winston is not exactly Brady. That’s pretty safe to say.

Winston may be familiar with the Buccaneers, obviously, but the Bucs players, and coaching staff, or more familiar with him. Advantage Tampa Bay. Now, it must be stated that Winston is having himself a quietly decent season. After all, the Saints are sitting at 4-2, which has flown surprisingly under the radar. That makes this divisional game very important when it comes to standings. All divisional games are. But with the Saints, it just hits different.

With all that being said, the Buccaneers will do what they did the last time they visited the Superdome, and come out with a victory, crushing the hearts of the Big Easy in the process.

The Saints’ defense is no joke, and Mike Evans in Marshon Lattimore should have their usual kerfuffles. While on the other side of the ball, the Saints all fence may not be as dynamic as it was with Drew Brees, regardless of how ancient, but they should still at the very least find the end zone.

At the end of this little reunion, the Bucs will have yet another victory, with another strong showing from there all fence even without Antonio Brown, by a score of 31-17. There is your spoiler for Sunday’s game. Do with this information what you will before kickoff McFly/Biff.
