The New Orleans Saints (6-8) cling to postseason hopes and have a unique situation Saturday against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (8-6) at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome.

Week 16 marks the second meeting between the Saints and Buccaneers in a span of three weeks, with the Buccaneers winning 16-11 in Week 14.

"There is a level of familiarity there, obviously, being a divisional opponent and the fact that that game plan is somewhat fresh in our minds still," Saints quarterback Drew Brees said. "But you're still tweaking things and it's a short week with Christmas and everything."

The Saints quarterback brings up good points, of course, because there are outside distractions.

So, what are the challenges of preparing for a divisional opponent given a short week leading to a Saturday game, the current playoff picture and the holiday season?
