The top two teams in the NFC South will face off in week eight when the Tampa Bay Bucs head to New Orleans to play the Saints in the Superdome. The Buccaneers crushed the Bears in their own stadium 38-3, while Saints went on the road and downed the Seahawks 13-10 on Monday Night football. NFL betting lines opened with the Bucs as 5½-point road favorites, with the point total set at 50.
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers put a beating on the Bears with Tom Brady tossing four touchdowns, including his 600th passing touchdown of his career. Mike Evans collected three touchdowns and Leonard Fournette ran one in for a score.
The defense is also starting to take off with the defensive front sacking Justin Fields four times, while the secondary collected three interceptions and five total turnovers. The Bucs hold the number one rushing defense in the league and will have to prove it against Alvin Kamara and the Saints.
The New Orleans Saints collected their third win in four games and are closing in on the Bucs division lead. The Saints have a lethal defense and it showed against the Seahawks dropping Geno Smith five times and allowing just ten points.
The special teams unit also played a critical role in pinning the Seahawks four times inside their own 20-yard line.
Be that as it may, it’s obvious the offense has some issues. The Saints haven’t found early down success this year and it showed with the Saints converting two of 13 third downs.
The offense ran through Alvin Kamara as the running back collected 179 yards on 30 touches. They will have a tough matchup next week against a solid Bucs defense.
