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?

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.

New Orleans at Tampa Bay Matchups: Saints offense vs. Buccaneers defense

The New Orleans Saints were supposed to return from a bye week last Sunday against the Atlanta Falcons. Someone forgot to tell this to a large portion of the team, however, as the Saints floundered their way to a 26-9 loss to their arch-rivals. Particularly troublesome was the lack of offensive balance and overall production against Atlanta. New Orleans had just 11 rushing attempts in a game that was well within reach until late in the fourth quarter and struggled to...

METAIRIE, La. -- Drew Brees summed up the most surprising loss of the 2019 NFL season in one word.

“Unacceptable,” Brees said, loudly slamming his fist into the palm of his other hand for added emphasis when he was reminded that the New Orleans Saints had never scored so few points at home in the Superdome since he and Sean Payton arrived in 2006.

“There you go. Unacceptable.”

Fortunately, the Saints (7-2) built up enough of a cushion during the first half of this...

Before New Orleans Saints cornerback Marshon Lattimore went to the locker room with his hamstring injury in Week 10, he drew some positive attention to his playmaking, winning the league's weekly NFL Way to Play award.

The award came after he recognized how Atlanta threw a screen pass to wideout Julio Jones. Lattimore pivoted toward Jones as the Falcon was trying to catch the ball, but Lattimore lowered his helmet right on the ball to deflect the pass. Lattimore...

One snap.

That's all the rest Marshon Lattimore had through the first eight games of the season.

The New Orleans Saints starting cornerback, the one who usually travels with the opposing team's premier receiver, has helped shut down Pro Bowl wideouts like Houston's DeAndre Hopkins, Dallas' Amari Cooper, Tampa Bay's Mike Evans and Atlanta's Julio Jones.

Even then, only 55.9% of passes thrown to receivers he's covering have resulted in a catch.

The New Orleans Saints have their first NFC South divisional rematch this weekend, traveling to Tampa Bay to face the Buccaneers.

The Saints won the first meeting, 31-24, in the Superdome in Week 5 with Teddy Bridgewater in at quarterback.

The Saints are 34-21 against the Buccaneers all-time, and the Bucs have never won the season series against the Saints as divisional rivals. Since the Saints won game one, that stat lives on for another year.
