Saints Host Bucs For Crucial NFC South Matchup

The Saints will look to keep their playoff hopes alive when they host the Buccaneers this week at the Superdome.  The Bucs are 7-and-4 and have a two-game lead on the 5-and-6 Saints in the NFC South.  Tampa Bay has reeled off three straight wins, including last week’s 19-13 triumph over the Washington Redskins.  Jeff Garcia injured his back on the opening drive of the game, but he did return in the fourth quarter.  Bruce Gradkowski filled in and threw for 106 yards for the Bucs.  The Saints beat the Carolina Panthers 31-6 in Week 12.  Drew Brees passed for three touchdowns, and ran for another, as New Orleans climbed back into the NFC playoff hunt.  In the first meeting of the year, the Bucs beat the Saints 31-14 in Tampa.
