Tampa Bay Buccaneers entered their divisional game on Sunday, losing by three points to New Orleans Saints. The Saints have the right to brag as they swept their two regular season meetings with the Pirates. The Saints defeated the Pirates (34-23) in Week 1 and completed a two game sweep with a 38-3 victory in Week 9. In any case, LaVar Arrington, a former NFL player and current Fox Sports 1 football analyst, believes the result on Sunday will be different. I think the Bucks will get too much for the Saints, Arrington said on Friday’s episode of First Things First.
Saints showed too much in week 9, win
Arrington said he was worried about the Saints’ victory over the Buccaneers in week nine and said he thought the scariest part of the game was New Orleans doing so much of what they do to succeed against Tampa.
The process of figuring out what it looks like, their comfort level and the opportunity to play against this Tampa Bay Bucs team, Mr. Arrington said, as seen in a YouTube video of the show.
Brady not afraid of New Orleans
But, said Mr. Arrington: Tom Brady is another playoff animal. It’s the playoffs and that changes everything and Tom Brady is not afraid of New Orleans, Arrington said, adding the veteran quarterback is not used to saluting the Saints despite his two losses this season. I think Tampa Bay has too many clichés right now. There’s too much explosiveness on offense and we’re not talking enough right now about the amazing quality of their defense, Arrington said. Brady, 43, has thrown 12 touchdown passes with just one interception in his last four control games this season.
Brady threw for 381 yards and two touchdowns with no interceptions in a 31-23 victory over Washington, giving the Buccaneers their first playoff win since the 2002 Super Bowl season.
Favre says the match between Brady and Brie is excellent.
Quarterback Brady and Saints Drew Brees were able to face off one last time, with the latter eligible to retire after this season.
But on Sunday, they will go down in history as the oldest starting quarterback in NFL history with a combined age of 85. Asked about this game on the SiriusXM Blitz, Hall of Fame quarterback Brett Favre said it would be a great game. They are fun to watch, and now they are competing again, for the third time this year.
Just good stuff. You couldn’t have asked for a better installation, Favre said, according to a report by Amy Just of NOLA.com.
Dragging 2 players against the Saints
Prior to Sunday’s clash with the Saints, the Pirates released their final injury report. Two players have been announced, while three have been listed as doubtful. The Pirates will be without right guard Alex Kappa, who suffered a broken ankle in Washington’s football victory. Defender Jeremiah Ledbetter will also miss Sunday’s game due to a calf injury. Questions include the return of Ronald Jones and the safety of Andrew Adams and Jordan Whitehead. Jones will make the decision during the game, so Leonard Fournette will be the starting assistant for the Buccaneers.
