This is it! The NFC South comes down to this very game. The Saints look unstoppable winning NINE IN A ROW. On the other hand, the Buccaneers look to win a division title and clinch home field advantage throughout the playoffs.

The hype for this game is off the charts. The Saints won earlier 26-24 on the foot of kicker Wil Lutz. This game won’t end that close. The Black and Gold put up three early touchdowns to lead 21-10 at halftime. Nothing points to a Buccaneer win until the second half begins. QB Jameis Winston tosses three touchdowns in the 3rd quarter, and the Bucs never look back.

The Buccaneers beat the Saints in the last game of the season to clinch the NFC South. Surely, Who Dat Nation would’ve taken a 12-4 RECORD to start the year. However, the expectations grew as the wins started to mount.

Final: Bucs 38 Saints 21

The Saints still make the playoffs and somehow make it all the way to the NFC Championship. Ironically, they get the TAMPA BAY BUCCANEERS again. Tampa Bay defeats the Saints to go to the Super Bowl. This one will be hard to swallow. But here is my Super Bowl pick.

SUPER BOWL LII- Tampa Bay vs. New England Patriots

Final: Tampa Bay Bucs 37 New England Patriots 34

Tampa Bay wins their second Super Bowl and the Saints surprise everyone by going 12-4 in the regular season. in 2018, the Saints just might be the team to beat.
