Just won a thriller against the Saints. Freeman threw 2 ints just before the half giving the Saints a short field both times and allowing them to go up by 10. Tampa Bay was able to drive down the field just before the end of the half and get a FG to bring NO's lead down to 7. Neither team could do much of anything through much of the 3rd quarter, until the Bucs got the ball and rode the back of Legarrette Blount all the way to the endzone. From there New Orleans looked to be moving the ball well but the Bucs D stopped them on a critical 3rd down near midfield. A couple of plays and a huge pass from Freeman to Benn set the Bucs up in field goal range with less than a minute left and forced NO to use their first timeout. A few more run plays left the Saints without any timeouts and TB with a 23 yard FG opportunity. The Bucs call a timeout with 10 seconds left, and Connor Barth kicks in the game winning field goal!
Huge win, as I have several human opponents over the next few games and these will be even more challenging.
