The Tampa Bay Buccaneers hit the road to take on their heated rival New Orleans Saints. Here is how the game will go for the Buccaneers.
Whenever the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are gearing up to take on their most hated rival New Orleans Saints for one of their yearly pair of meetings (if not more), emotions will always run high in the weeks leading up to the game. It’s what makes the games between the two always so memorable. Rivalries are always great for football.
This game has some extra mustard as it comes in week two when excitement for the new season is still at a fever pitch and the way previous meetings have ended. The Buccaneers have not beaten the Saints in the regular season since Tom Brady joined the Bucs. The key part there is “in the regular season”. The Buccaneers of course ended not only the 2020 season for the Saints but also the career of Drew Brees in the divisional round of the playoffs that year, in New Orleans coincidentally enough, on their way to winning Super Bowl LV.
So there’s the wrestling-like background of this game. Well, at least the cliff-notes version. Not too shabby. If your excitement has you too impatient for the game, we have you covered. Here’s your official spoiler alert on how the game will end. You’ve been warned.
The Buccaneers are beyond banged up injury-wise, and the timing could not be worse considering they are getting ready to play the Saints. That said, a lot of signs (and reports) are pointing to the fact that this season could very well be Brady’s NFL swan song. If that’s indeed the case for the most competitive human being on Earth, then he’s got some things to take care of on his way into the sunset.
One of those items on the checklist is defeating the Saints with the Bucs in the regular season, regardless of how injured his teammates are.
Much like the opening game against the Dallas Cowboys, and the last few games against the Saints for that matter, this will be a lower-scoring affair. It will also help that each defense has talent aplenty.
At the end of the day though, the GOAT will slay the not dragon for the Bucs but maybe closer to the troll under the bridge. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers will win this game by a score of 21-17. Do with this information what you will McFly.
