The New Orleans Buccaneers came to Raymond James Stadium on Sunday November 8, 2020 and routed their opponents the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in a 38-3 win.
Despite the increased expectations from Tom Brady and his high profile team, the Saints proved that they still rule the NFC in the South. Aiming for a fourth consecutive division victory, they swept away the Buccaneers for the second consecutive year.
It was a Saints match all the way as they scored three touchdowns before the Bucs even scored one. They also left a mark as they rolled up 420 yards. The Saints offense was versatile. Drew Brees threw four touchdown passes, each to a different target.
The Saints defense was also up to the mark. They forced three-and-outs in the Buc’s first four possessions. It was followed by a pick, then a turnover on the downs and finally another interception in the first half. This was followed a goal-line stand, another pick and a collection of sacks.
Brady disappointed while Brees triumphed. The final see-saw tally of touchdowns is Brees 564 while Brady is still on 561. This has been Brady’s worse loss ever. His previous one was 31-0 in 2003 against the Buffalo Bills.
