The New Orleans Saints are coming off of two impressive wins without Drew Brees and are home again against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 5.
The sky appeared to be falling when Drew Brees suffered a torn ligament in his throwing thumb in Week 2. The New Orleans Saints dropped that game to the Los Angeles Rams pretty definitively and the worst was expected for the next six weeks.
However, the Saints are off on the right foot and are undefeated without Brees under center. New Orleans went into Seattle last week and beat the Seahawks pretty definitively and then followed that up with an extremely strong defensive showing against the Dallas Cowboys.
The offense was not all that special on Sunday night as they put up four field goals and 12 total points but it was still enough behind a defense that only allowed 10 points.
The Saints are welcoming a team that dropped 55 points against the Los Angeles Rams this week: the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. On paper, you would think that most Saint fans would be extremely comfortable with this matchup.
However, every single year it feels like the Bucs steal one away from the Saints, which rightfully makes some fans wary.
Those fears are justified as they are part of being a sports fan. However, that is what we are here for as we can breakdown exactly why the Saints will get the job done in Week 5. Here are the three reasons why.
