    (AP) New Orleans, LA- The New Orleans Saints looked to rebound after a pathetic showing a week ago against the division rival Carolina Panthers. The Saints earlier in the week took the playcalling duties away from Offensive Coordinator Pete Carmichael where Head Coach Rob Mass took over those duties in preperation for another division rival in the Bucs.​

    You could tell early on that the Saints new (old) gameplan was to gett he ball to Jimmy Graham early who so far this season did not have much production. That gameplan would pay off as Jimmy Graham exploded for 172 yards and 2 TD's on the day. The Saints defense also came to play as they picked off Josh Freeman 3 times including a pick 6 just before halftime to give the Saints a 24-6 lead. Josh Freeman would find a TE of his own as he hit Clay all day long including a TD where the Bucs would cut into the Saints lead drawing within 10 points to make it a 24-14 game. The Saints came out after the half focused not wanting to let this one slip away as they would put 17 more points on the board to go up 38-21 and thats how it would end. ​
    The Saints move on to 4-2 as they will face the Baltimore Ravens in Week 7​

    Jimmy's frustrated. Wants out of N.O. And would love to move up north to Philly! At least that's what I'm hearing. Lol
