Tampa Bay continues to tear up the league
Bruce Arians' team approaches the matchup with New Orleans with a four-match winning streak. The closer the end of the regular season is, the more potent Tampa Bay looks. In total, the Buccaneers have 10 wins in 13 games. The team is firmly in 1st place in the NFC South division.
Last week, the Buccaneers outplayed one of the strongest teams of the season, the Buffalo Bills, at home. This time, though, it wasn't as easy for Tampa Bay as usual. Only in overtime was the outcome decided - 33-27 (27-27). Tom Brady scored two passing touchdowns. Tampa Bay confirmed their status as the NFL's best offense at the moment.
New Orleans is still out of the playoff zone
Fighting Tampa Bay over the long haul, as practice shows, is futile. So the only thing New Orleans can hope for is a wild-card spot. Sean Payton's team is having trouble with that as well. Though the margin is only 1 win. The Saints still have a chance.
Last week, the Saints handily defeated the New York Jets on their home field. 30-9, as the team did a great job on the takeout. Alvin Kamara had 1 carry for a touchdown; quarterback Taysom Hill has as many as 2.
After Tom Brady moved to Tampa Bay, the Buccaneers lost all 3 games in the regular season to Orleans, being stronger only in the last playoffs.

It just so happens that Sean Payton's Saints, no matter what state the team is in, regularly give Tom Brady a lot of trouble. The legendary mentor clearly has a secret of some sort. It's likely that the Buccaneers will have a hard time with Brady this time around. Moreover, New Orleans really needs to win if they want to contend for a playoff spot.
