Against the Spread (Devlin Duckett)
When the Saints beat the Buccaneers 34-23 in Week 1, they were facing a version of Tom Brady who was still familiarizing himself with the playbook and his teammates. Now Tampa Bay sports the fourth-best offense in the league, and Brady will exact his vengeance on New Orleans. This game should still be a bit of a shootout, but WR Michael Thomas is not a guarantee to play and that hurts the Saints. The Buccaneers have the seventh-ranked defense in the league overall, while boasting the top rushing defense period. Saints’ RB Alvin Kamara won’t have an easy time finding holes on Sunday night, and Tampa Bay will choke the life out of its deadliest division rival. Brady walks off the field victorious, after putting some distance on Drew Brees with regards to the all-time NFL passing touchdown record. Buccaneers 41, Saints 24
