The contest between the New Orleans Saints and Tampa Bay Buccaneers has been delayed thanks to lightening. The Saints and Buccaneers are doing battle for NFC South supremacy, but it will be interesting to see how both teams react after the delay.
The Saints are coming off a major victory over the Atlanta Falcons while the Buccaneers are looking to bounce back after a loss to the New York Jets.
Who knows, maybe the Saints will end up playing on Sunday Night Football.
Here is how fans and media alike reacted on Twitter.
No official word yet on when the Saints-Buccaneers game will restart #NOvsTB

So there’s that. We’ll keep you posted as things happen. Make sure you check back in with us after the game for reactions to how the Saints played. We’ll also have unique analysis Monday and Tuesday regardless of whether the Saints start 2-0 in the NFC South, or end up at 1-1.
In the meantime, enjoy the game. As we’ve said all week, New Orleans should be walking out of Tampa with a win against a team in a worse spot than the New York Jets. We just don’t know when that will be thanks to the weather.
How do you feel about the delay and the Saints chances?
