Buccaneers Lose To Saints, Fall Out Of Division Race

Buccaneers Lose To Saints, Fall Out Of Division Race

The NFL announced on Christmas Day that the Saints' season finale against the Atlanta Falcons next week has been moved from a noon kickoff to 3:25, the same procedure the league used with both of the New Orleans-Tampa Bay tilts.

"We just have to continue to fight and bounce back, " Winston said. "These are all important games and team wins".

The fortunes of Brees and Bucs quarterback Jameis Winston changed considerably between two games New Orleans and Tampa Bay played against one another in the span of 13 days.

The Bucs don't seem to lack confidence in their ability to make the playoffs for the first time since 2007.

"We couldn't put as much pressure on him today as we did in the first game, " Buccaneers coach Dirk Koetter said.

Last weekend, the Bucs fell 26-20 at NFC-leading Dallas.

If only five of those six games go the Buccaneers way, they'd tie the Packers on strength of record but then lose the second Wild Card spot on strength of schedule. Brees capped off the drive with an 11 yard TD pass to Cadet.

He went on to add that the Congress vice-president is out on bail in the "Rs 5,000-crore National Herald case". Union minister Ravi Shankar Prasad defended the PM and said, "Modiji is as pure as the Ganges".

The Saints aren't going down without a fight in 2016.

"I know we've had some tough moments this year that prevented us from being in playoff position, but I also believe you go through a lot of those things for a reason - to learn - and that enables you to have success in the future", Brees said.

Takeaways for the Bucs defense on Saturday. It was the Buccaneers' second game against their division foe in three weeks after the Bucs knocked off the Saints in Week 14. "Whatever happens after that is for the math professors to figure out". Mike Evans led the team in receptions, catching seven passes for 97 yards and a score.

The Bucs will visit New Orleans on Saturday at Mercedes-Benz Superdome in an NFL Week 16 game. The second-year QB now needs one more touchdown pass to set a franchise single-season record with 28.

Winston has 948 fewer yards passing, nine fewer TDs and one more interception than Brees, who also has completed a significantly higher percentage of throws (71.1 percent) than Winston (60.8 percent).

"It's all good and exciting", Payton said.
