The Tampa Bay Buccaneers will look to assert their dominance in the NFC South on Sunday, when they travel to New Orleans to take on the Saints. Tampa Bay got the last laugh with a road playoff win on the way to a Super Bowl victory, but the Saints swept them in the regular season last year. The Bucs will be hoping to avenge both of those losses by serving one up to their division rivals in front of their home crowd. Will the Bucs extend their lead in the NFC South, or will the Saints close the gap between them and the defending Super Bowl champs?
The Saints have won back-to-back games with road victories over the Washington Football Team and Seattle Seahawks. They’re back on home turf for the first time since a stunning 27-21 overtime loss against the New York Giants in Week 4. New Orleans has alternated covers and non-covers in each of the first six outings.
