Saints Take Advantage Of Winston Turnovers, Beat The Bucs
The New Orleans Saints defense was swarming all day long as they forced Tampa Bay Buccaneers Jameis Winston into four interceptions and win 34-17.
The offense also got back on track in this game as well after a lackluster week last week against the Atlanta Falcons. Drew Brees was back to his old ways throwing for 228 yards on 28/35 passing, three touchdowns and wasn't sacked. In addition, this was the 88th career game with 3+ touchdowns for Brees.
Michael Thomas was up to his usual tricks in this one as well as he caught eight balls for 114 yards and a score. Jared Cook and Ted Ginn Jr. also got into the mix with touchdown catches as well.
Alvin Kamara looked more like himself today, he was very shifty, played a ton of snaps and was very effective. He carried the ball 13 times for 75 yards and hauled in 10 passes for 47 yards.
As far as the defense was concerned, the four interceptions as mentioned and those came via Demario Davis, Vonn Bell, P.J. Williams, and a pick-six from Marcus Williams.
New Orleans only recorded two sacks in the game but they were constantly in Winston's personal space as they hit him 12 times and also knocked away 12 Winston passes as well.
With the win, the Saints move to 8-2 on the season and continue their stronghold on the NFC South.
