Antonio Brown, WR
Antonio Brown was not on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers roster when they played the first time at the beginning of the season. However, he was on the roster and active during the second game the two teams played in Week 14.
During that game, he saw only five receptions. He caught three of them for 31 yards. He really didn’t hurt the Saints or threaten them in any way. However, since then, Brown and Brady have gotten more familiar with one another.
In their first postseason game against Washington, Brown caught two passes for 49 yards and a touchdown. He has become the “big play” option for Tom Brady. For the Saints to win this game, they need to keep Brown out of the game — especially down the field.
The New Orleans Saints are in the last days of Drew Brees and looking to make a deep run in the playoffs. Their next opponent, the Buccaneers, are looking to squash that dream.
For the Saints to come out on top, they need to stop these role players.
