The Saints offense responded with 40 points in the contest, but the Black and Gold "D" couldn’t stop the Bucs backup quarterback. Drew Brees went for 439 yards passing, three touchdowns.

It’s the fifth straight loss in the opener for the Saints.

“Tampa Bay came and put it to us. Put it to us good,” said Sean Payton.
