As the New Orleans Saints prepare to play the Tampa Bay Buccaneers this weekend, here are three unexpected Bucs that they should watch out for.

It is ironic that in the divisional round of the playoffs, the Saints are playing the only other divisional opponent from the NFC South to make the playoffs. However, because of this, we have a two-game sample size of them already playing one another.

The first time they played, the Saints got the better of the Buccaneers. It was the first game of the year and without a preseason, we just chalked it up to the Buccaneers had so many new pieces that they were still working on their chemistry together.

The second time they played was midway through the season. By now, the Buccaneers should have figured their “kinks” out. It did not work though. The Saints ended up beating them 38-3, which was harder than the first time they played.

Now, they will face off for the third time this season. The Buccaneers have been currently playing their best football of the season. Because of that, there is a handful of unexpected players that the Saints need to keep an eye on preparing to play Tampa Bay. Here they are.
