Reggie Bush had the best game of his brief NFL career the last time the New Orleans Saints played the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Now the heralded rookie will try to help his club rebound from its worst performance of the season, when the two NFC South rivals get together again this Sunday at Raymond James Stadium.

Bush, the reigning Heisman Trophy winner and No. 2 overall pick of the 2006 draft, was truly a difference-maker in New Orleans' 24-21 victory over the Buccaneers at the Superdome in Week 5. The versatile running back caught a career-best 11 passes for 63 yards, and scored the game-winning touchdown on a dazzling 65-yard punt return with under five minutes remaining.

Bush's score spoiled an excellent first NFL start by Tampa Bay quarterback Bruce Gradkowski, who engineered a pair of second-half touchdown drives to briefly bring the Bucs back from a 10-point deficit.
