The New Orleans Saints will take on a mighty Bucs team in Week 9, and this game will showcase who is truly in control of the NFC South.
Yes, the New Orleans Saints have already played and beaten the much improved Tampa Bay Buccaneers once this season back in Week 1, but everyone knows the high level of importance surrounding this Week 9 matchup.
Neither of these two teams are the same team that they were back in Week 1 when the Saints managed to knock off the Buccaneers 34-23. The Bucs took a quick lead in that game before the Saints started to get into a groove offensively.
While they do have six wins, their mere two losses and utter dominance over teams like Green Bay speak volumes of where they are now.
Tom Brady has gotten in a bit of a rhythm with his new weapons that currently consist of Mike Evans, Chris Godwin, Rob Gronkowski, Leonard Fournette, and Antonio Brown. Alvin has started to enter his name into MVP conversation. Michael Thomas is set to return in Week 9.
This is a very important game for the Saints to win and here are three reasons why.
