Bucs vs Saints Preview

Two of the greatest quarterbacks of all-time face off to kick off the season as Tom Brady debuts for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers against Drew Brees and the New Orleans Saints.

Brady spent the last two decades under center for the Patriots, winning six Super Bowls. But the three-time MVP moved on the Bucs in the offseason and will have his hands full in the NFC South, facing off the Brees and the Saints twice per season.

“Obviously when you go against great players like Drew and a great team like that, you know there’s not a lot of margin of error,” Brady told reporters this week. “Sometimes you go up against lesser experienced players — certainly at the quarterback position — maybe some defenses or some teams aren’t as well-rounded as others. But the Saints are not one of those teams. They have a great quarterback, a great offense, incredible skill players, great continuity in their organization. Defense, they rush the passer, good in the secondary, great at linebacker. They’ve got everything.”

The Bucs finished 7-9 a year ago in Bruce Arians first season at the helm. It was the 12th consecutive season Tampa Bay had missed the playoffs and the eighth time in nine seasons they finish with a record worse than .500. But even Saints coach Sean Payton recognizes a player with Brady’s resume can be a culture-changing figure.

“His consistency, his longevity. Ultimately, the Super Bowl success, the amount of games that he’s won, all of those things,” Payton said. “He’s a tremendous leader, he’s got fantastic arm talent, he’s a very good athlete. And I think it’s hard to put that into just one answer. He’s gonna elevate the level of play and the culture of his team there.”

The Saints have the most regular season wins of any team the last three seasons, winning 37 games. But with 41-year-old Brees leading the way, the team understands that its championship window with their future Hall of Fame QB under center could be coming to a close.

“Hey, at this time, man, I’m on borrowed time,” Brees told reporters. “I’ve got nothing to lose. So I’m turning it loose and letting the chips fall where they may.”

The Saints are a 3.5-point favorite for the matchup, with the total set at 47.5 points.
