New Orleans Saints vs. Tampa Bay Buccaneers game recap

Several minutes into the fourth quarter on Sunday, the Buccaneers were missing their top three wide receivers, top two left tackles, No. 1 center, and primary third-down back.

Football teams with championship DNA look forward, not back, and Brady showed why he is considered the greatest player ever when they left their offensive struggles behind.

Although the standings show it was only one game, it was much more emotional. Since 2018, the Bucs had not won in New Orleans in seven consecutive regular-season games. Brady found Perriman, perhaps the team's fifth-best wideout, who had gone seven quarters without a touchdown against them.

Jameis Winston completed 25 of 40 pass attempts for 236 yards, scoring 1 touchdown and throwing 3 interceptions. Despite 6 sacks, he lost 30 yards.

A 51 yard gain set up Tampa Bay's final possession when wide receiver Chris Olave fumbled after catching 5 of his 13 targets.

 Carolina Panthers will host the Saints in Charlotte. New York Giants beat the Panthers 0-2 on Sunday. New Orleans won't win many more games if its offense flails around like it did on Sunday.
