There wasn't much at stake for the Saints - at least after about 30 minutes of the Falcons rout of Carolina - and they looked the part, falling 23-13 to the Bucs in a game that meant a lot to Tampa.
It was the Bucs' first win against a team with a winning record this year. It was also a game that meant little to the Saints who will now travel to play either Seattle or St. Louis next weekend.
Injuries though may be a different story with the Saints having TE Jimmy Graham, RB Chris Ivory and DB Malcolm Jenkins leave at different stages of the contest.

I hope that our players leaving the game were more "precaution" than injury.
I think these guys will be fine for next week. I did notice the Saints pretty much took their foot off the accelerator once Atlanta went up 14-0. I mean it was impossible to really think Carolina would beat Atlanta at this time. Had the game between them stayed close, at least some of those injured guys would have gutted it out and played.
