It's time for Saints vs. Buccaneers II.

While the headlines might naturally gravitate to the two future hall of famers quarterbacking both squads, there's a lot more on the line in this game than a duel between Drew Brees and Tom Brady.

A win this week could make certain the Saints' path to a fourth straight division crown, and the playoffs, much easier.

NUMBERS TO KNOW
0: Tom Brady has never been swept by a division opponent.

14: The Buccaneers have 14 takeaways this season, a mark that leads the league.

81: That's the number of Antonio Brown, who will be playing in his first game as a Buccaneer on Sunday.

100: The Saints' defense hasn't allowed a 100-yard rusher since Week 11 of the 2017 season. That's 50 straight games.


FOUR THINGS TO WATCH FOR
1. Brees vs. Brady II

Drew Brees got the victory in the first meeting of the season between the 2 first-ballot Hall of Famers. But Brees did so despite having his worst outing of the season. He completed 18 of 30 passes for a season-low 160 yards and 2 touchdowns. The Buccaneers defense is one of the best units in the league, allowing just 299.5 yards per game, which is the third best in the league. They rank 13th in the league against the pass, allowing 229.1 yards through the air. The past three games, that number has dropped to 211 per game. Brees has found his groove the past few weeks. How well he does against the Bucs' D will be pivotal.

2. Grounded

Running the ball may be a challenge for both teams. We've been talking about the Saints' streak of not allowing a 100-yard rusher since Nov. of 2017, which was the last time an opposing back eclipsed the century mark. That streak is now at 50 games and the Saints are allowing just 90.6 yards per game on the ground. As impressive as the Saints' run defense has been for the past three seasons, it's the Bucs who are leading the NFL in stuffing the run this season. They are yielding just 70.4 yards per game. Can Alvin Kamara and Latavius Murray , who have combined to average 101 yards per game, get it done on ground?


3. Marshon Lattimore vs. Mike Evans: An intensen rivalry

It's one of the more intense individual rivalries in the NFL, dating back to Marshon Lattimore's rookie season when Bucs' receiver Mike Evans shoved him, setting off an altercation during the two times. Since then, Lattimore has pretty much dominated in his matchups against Evans, including this year's season opener. Tom Brady targeted Evans twice in that game, but he didn't have any receptions. According to NFL.com’s Next Gen Stats, Lattimore was matched up with Evans 29 times in the game. It'll be one of the more intriguing one-on-one matchups to watch once again.

4. An NFC South 4-peat?
No team has ever won the NFC South in four consecutive seasons. The Saints are hoping to be the first to do so this season. The Saints are currently a half game behind the Bucs in the standings, so winning this one could go a long way in determining which team wins the division. This one would also help in tie-breaker scenarios because it would give the Saints a season sweep in a division that looks to be a 2-team race. Both teams have favorable schedules after Sunday.

Re: Saints @ Buccaneers Game Day Thread

No mental break downs on the back end of the secondary. Looking around the league today, I see no broken coverages giving up 45/50 yard bombs like New Orleans.

Our defensive front 4 must generate pressure. That's a recipe to neutralizing some of those weapons they have on offense.

Lattimore should shut down Evans as per usual, Jenkins should give Godwin fits and Ceedy should be in Browns ear all game long. If Deuce can get his own teammate (a "superstar") suspended then he should be all over Brown throughout the game.
