The New Orleans Saints will travel to Tampa Bay to take on the Buccaneers in a Week 11 NFC South showdown. This will be the second matchup between the two teams, the first being a 31-24 Saints victory in Week 5.

The injury report this week will be crucially important as all eyes will be on cornerback Marshon Lattimore after a hamstring injury during Week 10. Lattimore has proven to be the best secondary player on the Saints defense, and with Buccaneer’s wideout Mike Evans lurking, an additional challenge has been wrinkled in to the Saints’ game plan.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers enter Sunday looking to avenge their Week 5 loss, when New Orleans Saints backup quarterback Teddy Bridgewater torched the Bucs secondary for 314 yards and four touchdowns in a 31-24 New Orleans win.

This week, however, Bridgewater will be watching from the sideline now that incumbent starter Drew Brees is back from a thumb injury.

While the Buccaneers won’t be facing Bridgewater in Week 11, they should keep an eye on him this offseason as a potential replacement for Jameis Winston, according to analyst David Carr.

What will the Saints do without Andrus Peat?

By John Sigler | Saints Wire

The New Orleans Saints offensive line took a hit on Wednesday when starting left guard Andrus Peat underwent surgery to repair a broken arm, putting him on the sidelines for about six weeks. So where do they go from here?

Peat’s immediate replacement is backup guard Will Clapp, who filled in for him during Sunday’s loss to the Atlanta Falcons. Clapp is a second-year player out of LSU with experience at both guard and center, though the Saints prefer him at guard. He allowed a few sacks to the swarming Falcons defense after being rushed into action.

AP source: Peat has surgery on broken arm, out about 6 weeks

NEW ORLEANS (AP) — New Orleans Saints starting left guard Andrus Peat has had surgery to repair a broken arm and is expected to be sidelined about six weeks, said a person familiar with the situation.

The person spoke to The Associated Press Wednesday on condition of anonymity because the extent of Peat’s injury and his surgery has not been announced. ESPN first reported details of the surgery.

The 2018 Pro Bowl selection was injured during the first half of Sunday’s 26-9 loss to Atlanta.

Peat was New Orleans’ first-round draft choice in 2015 and has started 59 of the 64 career games he’s played.

Although Saints players did not indicate whether they’d been briefed on the specifics of Peat’s injury or his estimated absence, they addressed the likelihood of having to play multiple games without him after he’d missed Wednesday’s practice.

“It’s a loss for us, for sure. Andrus is playing well, he has a lot of experience,” Saints left tackle Terron Armstead said.

“Not in football, dog,” Armstead said wearily.

As late as this Wednesday, the Saints’ big left tackle was still dealing with the remnants of the illness that has stuck with him for the better part of a week. He missed New Orleans’ Friday practice before the Falcons game, then spent the next couple days...

Saints coach Sean Payton on attending Colin Kaepernick workout: 'It isn't a need for us'

The New Orleans Saints have arguably the best quarterback in the NFL.

They have a starting quarterback in Drew Brees who is a future Hall of Famer.

A backup in Teddy Bridgewater who is considered by most to be the league's top No. 2 quarterback.

And a versatile third stringer, Taysom Hill, who lines up all over the field.

Because of that depth, the Saints won't be one of the teams watching Colin Kaepernick's workout in Atlanta on Saturday.

Tampa has been Brees’ Kryptonite

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have been the worst team in the NFC South for the last decade – no division titles since 2007 would back that up. But when the Saints head to Tampa, it seems that Drew Brees has had more poor games than at any other NFC South stadium.

Maybe it’s the weather, or the defense, or just a confluence of other events, but Brees’ numbers when playing at Raymond James Stadium are well below his regular numbers.

For instance, eight times in his...

The Saints were 14-point favorites against the Falcons on Sunday and got blown out 26-9, the first time this season that a two-touchdown favorite had lost a game. Clearly, something went wrong.

Saints quarterback Drew Brees said he and his teammates on offense consider it “unacceptable” that they managed just three field goals against a defense that had previously been among the worst in the league.

“We were extremely disappointed in our performance,” Brees said...
