For the second time this season the Saints play Tampa after facing Chicago. The first time the Saints beat them both the hard way on the road. Capped off with the perhaps the biggest statement game of the season a 38-3 victory in Tampa. Now this time they have the chance to repeat the feat in the Playoffs in the friendly confines of the Superdome.

I have a theory that Chicago's stout D-line helped the Saints prepare for the Buccaneers D-line. Fresh off the game speed of the Bears Defense, N.O and Brees didnt have to adjust to Tampa's D. Conversely, Brady has struggled mightily against teams that can offer a relentless pass rush. It is hard to make adjustments against the Saints defense because they are good at all levels and boast great depth everywhere except Linebacker.

The Saints depth on the D-Line will ensure that they can keep up an intense pass rush all game long on Brady and make his life hard. If N.O can get off to a good lead, Arians will likely abandon run and make Tampa become one dimensional offensively. When this happens Arians likes to call plays that tend to lead to negative consequences.

I hope he doesn’t abandon the run. This alleviates an attack on our secondary. Don’t want any cheap first downs on penalties.

Brady has also started to play poorly in night games outdoors. This one is a night game but in the dome.

True that. Im hoping Brady does get so distressed that he does what he did the first two games, throw hopeless floaters that get picked off.

not gonna look this up. but if we were to win sunday, face the packers the next week, and the chiefs in the SB.

how often does a super bowl team face 4 teams in the post season that they played in the regular season.
Probably safe to say nothing like that has happened. Was thinking about that but afraid to post it. But ye, that would be awesome.

2010 Packers got 3 out of 4
2011 Giants got 3 out of 4


1985 Patriots played 4 out of 4 however they lost the Super Bowl rather uhhh spectacularly.
