Saints vs. Buccaneers

The Saints will look to impress this week as they take on the division rival Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The Saints offense was flat against the Colts and couldn't find the end zone, while the defense was torched by Peyton Manning and his wide receivers. This Sunday will have a very different feel to it.

The Saints will be chomping at the bit to play as they had to wait longer than usual to get back on the field after playing on a Thursday. This made the players think longer about their play and should have them more focused against the Bucs. I see the offense moving the ball like they did in the preseason and they will find the end zone multiple times this week. Reggie Bush wants to impress and he, along with fellow RB Deuce McAllister, should have a big day.

The Bucs are sort of in rebuilding mode, but time is running out for coach Jon Gruden. He brought in QB Jeff Garcia, who is familiar with the Saints from his days with the Eagles and 49ers. RB Carnell "Cadillac" Williams is nursing sore ribs and may not play. This sets up for a good spot for New Orleans to refocus themselves and get a win in the division.
