Cam Jordan took a shot at Buccaneers fans after a Week 1 victory.
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers headed to the Superdome with Tom Brady at quarterback. The New Orleans Saints were still the betting favorites, but the lack of fans in attendance was a whole new atmosphere at the usually deafening venue.
That did not seem to bother the Saints in what ended up being a 34-23 victory. The defense forced two Brady interceptions and Rob Gronkowski was held to 11 yards on two receptions. Saints defender Cam Jordan took a shot at the Buccaneers and their fans following the big win.
Buccaneers fans personally attacked by Jordan
No noise, no problem. Jordan and the Saints created their own atmosphere and chalked it up to their annual road game in Tampa. While diehard Bucs supporters may be offended, the stadium has a reputation for either being filled with empty seats or fans of the opposing team.
Jordan had himself four tackles on the day and one hit on Brady. The entire Saints defense made it tough on the legendary quarterback as he took three sacks and was hit throughout the game.
The lack of fans in attendance is different, but is not as crazy as it originally sounded. The stadiums are pumping in noise and the television networks are doing the same. Some broadcasts has the fake noise a bit loud, but that can be worked on once they review this week’s games.
Some stadiums even have fans in attendance. But Jordan’s Saints proved they can still dominate in front of no fans and can still be motivated just like any other Sunday. Using the mental trick of pretending it’s a road game in Tampa helps as well.
