Week two is already upon us in our Second Season. This week the Saints play their quasi-rivals Tampa Bay in the first divisional match-up of the season. Saints fans will like the outcome this time around as the Second Season is already looking better than the actual 2007 campaign.
Last season the Saints were put away by Tampa Bay, largely in part to Saint killer Joey Galloway. It was another disappointment and the first sign that the Saints were not as great as everyone thought.
This time around the tables are turned and the Saints come away with a win...barely. Galloway only gets one TD in this one and Olindo Mare (unbelievably) makes an OT field goal to give the Saints the edge in this contest. This one was a close defensive battle and the Saints came up with some big turnovers, including two interceptions, one by...oh my god...Jason David. Deuce had another decent day with 98 yards and Colston was back to his old form with 6 receptions for 83 yards. Eric Johnson wound up being Drew's favorite receiver on the day as he hauled in 7 catches. Saints now lead the NFC South and look to be on track.
|3rd Down Conv.||8/18||6/18|
|Red Zone Offense||33%||50%|
Saints have a longer week than normal, playing their next game on Monday night in front of the entire country against the Titans. This is their first game at home they will try and make it two in a row and start their march to the Superbowl.
