New Orleans Saints 31 @ Tampa Bay Buccaneers 6: Who Dat Say!?


The Saints got back to their winning ways in a big way against the Buccaneers yesterday, to the tune of a 25-point win.  

The running game showed up big, the vertical passing game showed up big, the defense showed up big, and the unpredictable kicking game showed up big (again).  

So, I guess you can't have everything.  But you actually can if you make the jump to dig into all the post-game reports, videos, tweets, columns, recaps and whatever else ends up in this post.  

ENJOY this win and ENJOY the info!!  Bring on the Browns!!


jeffduncantp Chris Ivory's 151 yards are the most by a Saints rookie RB since Ricky Williams had 179 against the Browns in 1999.

jeffduncantp Stanley Arnoux just got ejected from the game for instigating a fight after the kickoff. It looked like he was taking up for Garrett Hartley

jeffduncantp My 40-10 pregame prediction is looking pretty good right about now. ... Just sayin'.

sharper42 Hey hey hoorah, lets all say it together. 1 2 3.. all we do is win win win win win!!!

jeffduncantp Carl Nicks: "It's good to finally dominate like we should."

JonVilma51 Now THAT'S Saints football right there!! Who Dat baby!!

jeffduncantp Update from the locker room, Sean Payton said there would be no updates on injuries. I know that's a shocker to everyone.

jeffduncantp Jabari Greer said he's OK but would not elaborate on his injury. Ditto Roman Harper.

robyslyfe Great TEAM win 2day!!! To our REAL and TRUE Saints fans, we heard you loud and clear...WHO DAT!!!

MalcolmJenkins Great win!! Let's keep it going who dat nation!!! On our way back to NOLA

reggie_bush Back in business! Solid win for us today great way to bounce back from last week! Let's see if we can keep this momentum going

drewbrees Great win today in Tampa. Now it is baby time. Hopefully #2 decides to come this week. Appreciate everyone's thoughts and prayers. 

jeffduncantp Sean Payton said there was nothing wrong with the snap & hold on Hartley's 33-yard missed FG. Hartley's cryptic response indicated otherwise

jeffduncantp Hartley said he needed to look at film of his miss. Us: "So the snap & hold were good?" GH: "LIke I said, we'll have to look at the film."

jgoody76 When this profession comes to an end. The mood on this flight will be one of the things I miss the most. 

ltorrence24 Feeling good, great Win! Just touched down back in the NOLA, first stop, PinkBerry, My treat!

T_Porter22 Getting ready for bed gotta get up early so I can continue to get better...I'm sooo ready to get back but I have to be patient tho

jgoody76  I can tell we had a lot of rushing attempts today because this is by far the sorest I've been after any game this year.

HeathEvans If the colts lose it will b b/c of arrogance! They always think they can throw the ball no matter what! Just run the ball & run the clock#fb
