It’s good to be back.
The New Orleans Saints, behind the play of Drew Brees, Alvin Kamara, Jared Cook, a stifling defense and excellent special teams play, were able to hand Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers their first loss of the 2020 NFL season. It was a complete game for the Saints as the offense took some time to get moving but the Saints defense - and special teams - were able to propel New Orleans to a victory.
The Saints were able to force the national media to pump the breaks a bit on the Tom-pa Bay Hype Train after handing the Buccaneers a 34-23 loss in the Dome, and here are some of the best reactions from #SaintsTwitter after the game:

Fantastic start for the Saints 2020 season who now, jump out as the only winning team in the NFC South. Great tone to set ahead of traveling to Vegas next week.— Ross Jackson (@RossJacksonNOLA) September 13, 2020
Mike Evans had one reception Sunday and it came on a play starting at 2:46 of the fourth quarter. According to @NextGenStats, Marshon Lattimore lined up against Evans a team-high 29 times, and limited him to 0 receptions on two targets as the nearest defender.— JennaLaineESPN (@JennaLaineESPN) September 14, 2020
Was good to see Lattimore start the season playing well.— Ryan (@datboywolf) September 14, 2020

Y’all can complain about Drew all you want, but he never misses the chance to spend time with his fans pic.twitter.com/uEOvGuQva3— Lil’Mitch (@MitchDMS) September 14, 2020
No shame in losing at NO if you’re Tampa, especially with having a FG blocked & giving up a Pick 6. Run game & defense looked really good.— nick wright (@getnickwright) September 13, 2020
The Bucs are just a quarterback away from being a real contender.
Maybe they’ll get one in the draft next year.
It's just a happier Monday following a Saints win. pic.twitter.com/SmKZRcdnrw— Christopher Dunnells (@ChrisDunnells) September 14, 2020
