NFL Week 13: New Orleans Saints vs. Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Sports Betting Louisiana » NFL Week 13: New Orleans Saints vs. Tampa Bay Buccaneers

After a humiliating 13-0 defeat at the hands of the San Francisco 49ers (7-4), the New Orleans Saints (4-8)  will be looking to rebound this week against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers who are also struggling this season (5-6). 

The Bucs are also coming from a disappointing overtime loss against the Cleveland Browns but are still in a playoff spot. Meanwhile, the Saints’ playoff contention falls further as they get another defeat, which is not surprising due to the 49ers’ performance this season. They will have another chance to defeat the Bucs this season who beat them earlier this season, 20-10.

Can the Saints get their revenge?

Saints vs. Bucs Preview Week 13

Led by Tom Brady who’s number four in passing leaders this season with 3,051, the Buccaneers have one of the most highly anticipated teams in the league before the season began but seems to be not the same Bucs as last season. They are still leading in the NFC South but fall below 0.500.

The Bucs are looking to have slight changes in their roster as they activate Cornerback Anthony Chesley to the practice squad and signed the linebacker, J.J. Russell after being waived last week. Regardless, they will be a tough test for a Saints defense that has struggled throughout this season.

The Saint’s offense hasn’t been effective this season, they haven’t finished with more than 30 points beside their 39-point performance against the Seattle Seahawks (6-5). They didn’t even get a point during their last match.

However, the Saints are being exposed more in defense. They are averaging 347.3 yards per game with 20.8 points per game but they are allowing their opponents to score 23.3 points per game while just having 326.4 years per game.

One good thing about the Saints is that they are one of the top teams, in terms of limiting their opponents with 197.3 passing yards per meeting, which will be crucial as they face Tom Brady. The playoff contention of the Saints is looking dusky but they must focus one game at a time.
