This NFC South match up pits the New Orleans Saints against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The New Orleans Saints already defeated another NFC South team when they beat the Atlanta Faclons in the Superdome in week one. Know they need to repeat, but this time on the road.
It is time to see if the Tampa Bay Buccaneers defense can stop Saints quarterback Drew Brees. They failed to keep rookie Jets quarterback Geno Smith in check in week one and Brees is at a whole different level of play.
“He’s an elite quarterback, not only in this time but in the history of the league,” Buccaneers coach Greg Schiano said, via ESPN. “This guy is special. You’re not going to stop him, no one does. Can you contain him? That’s more of the challenge, that’s what we need to do.”
Cornerback Darrelle Revis though is still trying to knock the rust off and could play better this week.
“It felt good, getting back out there and doing what I love to do,” Revis said. “I was just excited to be out there with my teammates, they’ve been anxious, I’ve been anxious. So it was a great feeling.”
