If the Saints want to get past the Buccaneers, they will need to play even better than they did against the Bears, when they limited Mitchell Trubisky and the Chicago offense to essentially only 3 points all game (a garbage-time touchdown was scored as time expired).
But with a beat down of the team that eliminated them from the postseason back in 2006, and a matchup against Tom Brady - who the Saints have already beaten twice this year - on deck, Saints Twitter was excited to say the least.
Here are some of the best reactions:
