This game keeps getting uglier.

Doug Martin is over 100 yards rushing, with 19-108. The Saints are able to get things going, but drives are killed by penalties.

Malcolm Jenkins (bowtie extraordinaire) with a huge interception, as he read Josh Freeman to intercept it accordingly, which resulted in a 41-yard Garrett Hartley field goal.

Kenny Vaccaro is lucky that a Vincent Jackson 73 yard touchdown was nullified by a 5 yard illegal shift.

I think just about everyone in New Orleans is over Mark Ingram, as he is just not getting it done.

The Buccaneers are clearly undisciplined. This has been just an ugly exhibition of penalties in this game. I just don’t understand how this team has so much turmoil.

The Saints are in a critical spot. The score is only 13-7, and the Bucs are lingering in there down only one possession.

This drive needs points, regardless. Let’s see if the Saints can keep things going?

The Saints lead 13-7 after the 3rd Quarter, but should be up by a lot more. Who will wind up the unsung hero?
