In the past four of five years the Tampa Bay Buccaneers New Orleans Saints have split their two meetings in every season. Last year the Saints swept the Buccaneers and put up a lot of points in each game. In game one it was New Orleans with the 35-28 road victory as a -1 point favorite. Six weeks later they met in New Orleans and it was the Saints with the 41-0 home victory as a -3 ½ point betting favorite. The Saints had a very good defensive effort in their week one 23-17 home victory over division rival the Atlanta Falcons as a -3 ½ point betting favorite. The Saints made a good comeback as they fell behind early 10-0 and allowed just seven points to the high octane Falcons offense the rest of the way. But it took a goal line stance by New Orleans as Atlanta had first and goal in the closing seconds of the game and kept the Falcons from scoring the winning touchdown in their final drive. Tampa Bay opened the year facing a rookie quarterback in Geno Smith for the New York Jets and fall 18-17 as a -4 point betting favorite. The Buccaneers were outgained by the anemic Jets offense. A huge mistake for linebacker Lavonte David put the Jets in field goal position for the winning kick with two seconds remaining. David hit Geno Smith late as he was running out of bounds and the 15 yard penalty made the field goal attempt 48 yards instead of 63 yards for the game winner.
