The Saints’ defense always prevails.
This point goes hand in hand with the first one about finding Brady’s weakness, but the defense for New Orleans seems to come together and just play at a different level than they are used to every time they play the team from Florida.
Over the course of the two games that they played the Buccaneers, the Saints picked off Brady five times, they sacked him 6.0 times, hit him another 16 times, they also forced one fumble, and recovered that fumble in those games.
The defense at most times this season has always picked up for the slack of the offense. Next week will be no different. One of the main reasons the Saints will power their way to the Super Bowl will be on the back of the defense.
The Saints are welcoming in their divisional rival. The last rivalry game between the infamous Drew Brees and Tom Brady. Brees needs this win to at least ride out on a win against a player he has battled his entire career with.
