The Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ 2021 future depends entirely on what happens tonight against Drew Brees and the New Orleans Saints, to whom they have already lost twice this season.
But, it is difficult for a team to beat another three times in a row and this is a much different Buc’s team because the unit is peaking at the exact right time. Star QB Tom Brady agrees that the team is gelling and that it is poised to make it to the promise land, Super Bowl LV.

So what can the Bucs can do tonight to overcome their Week Nine loss and gain an advantage against this Saints team?
1. Protect Brady: Brady has been under duress against the Saints defense leading to three interceptions, three sacks, numerous quarterback hits, and an overall sense of discombobulation.
2. Be better on 3rd down: The Bucs have converted a paltry 27.3% of their third down attempts against the Saints this year.
3. Defense must contain Brees: The Saints QB easily picked apart the Buc’s defense, play after play.

Protecting Brady and keeping him upright is the top priority of the Buc’s offense. If that can be done, not only will the third downs come more easily, but they’ll actually be able to move the ball.

This is the playoffs, it’s win or go home time and the Bucs are tired of getting their butts kicked by the same team over and over again. These adjustments could help Brady and the Bucs advance to the NFC Championship and potentially the Super Bowl which will be played at their home stadium “Ray Jay.” Brady has six rings so he knows how to win but can he add a seventh? It really depends on how his team responds.
If not, see you next season.
