It's time for Round 3. The Saints vs the Bucs in the divisional round of the NFL playoffs. You ready?

The Saints defeated the Bucs both times they played in the regular season, and they'll be looking to become the 16th team post-merger to go 3-0 against one team in a season. The most recent team to do it? The Saints in 2017 when they defeated the Carolina Panthers in the wild card round.

But this time it's 6-time Super Bowl champion Tom Brady on the opposing sideline for a matchup of the two oldest active quarterbacks in the league. Brady is 43, while Brees turned 42 earlier this week.

If this is truly the last time we see Drew Brees in the Superdome as a Saints player, it's been a terrific ride.

Good luck today.

Hoping not, despite the rumors... he's still got one more year left in him... and on his contract.

I think if we win the Super Bowl Brees plays one more year.

I can't help but feel a little sad knowing I may never see Drew leading the team in the Super Dome again.
