Saints and the NFC South, a roundup

3 of 5

Tampa Bay Buccaneers (2-4)

This contributor had pegged the Tampa Bay Buccaneers as the favorite to win the division. Jameis Winston is the next good young QB in the division and they added DeSean Jackson to take some pressure off Mike Evans.

Offensively they are playing well. Mike Smith’s defense last season was very good. So far this year they are only average, which has been their downfall.

This team will present a matchup problem for the Saints as they feature 2 solid tight ends. Who Dats recall our issues with that position. Tampa Bay is the hardest team to peg of the 3 divisional opponents.

Their defense simply isn’t as good, but not many pieces are different from last season when they finished 15th in points allowed. Currently they sit at 29th in the NFL in that category.
