New Orleans Saints 38-3 Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Tom Brady throws three interceptions in blowout loss | NFL News

first_imgScoring summary Saints 31-0 BuccaneersWill Lutz 36-yard field goal A Will Lutz 36-yard field goal made it 31-0 to New Orleans going into the break, with Brady – who threw a second pick to Marcus Williams in the dying seconds – staring down the largest ever half-time deficit of his storied career.The start of the third quarter offered a glimmer of hope, as the Buccaneers recovered a Brees fumble on the first possession and subsequently drove down to the Saints one-yard line, only to then turn the ball over on downs for the second time in the game when failing to convert on fourth down.Brady’s third and final interception was picked off by Malcolm Jenkins late in the third quarter, and Brees then turned that turnover into a three-yard touchdown pass to Josh Hill early in the fourth, seeing him streak ahead of Brady by three on the all-time passing TDs list.Ryan Succop’s 48-yard field goal with just under six minutes remaining ensured Tampa Bay were at least able to avoid a shutout, but the 38-3 scoreline represents the most lopsided loss of Brady’s career. Saints 38-0 BuccaneersDrew Brees three-yard TD pass to Josh Hill (extra point) – Advertisement – It was clear early on in the game that it was going to prove a far trickier contest for Tampa Bay than many had predicted; having averaged 36 points per game in a three-game win streak coming into Sunday’s meeting with the Saints, Brady’s Bucs badly stumbled out of the gate, particularly on offence.Buccaneers stats: Tom Brady, 22/38, 209 yards, 0 TDs, 3 INTsRushing leader: Ronald Jones, three carries, nine yardsReceiving leader: Mike Evans, four catches, 64 yardsTampa Bay went three-and-out on each of their opening four possessions, while Brady threw his first interception to David Onyemata on their next series, seeing his stat line read a paltry 4-of-12 passing at the time, for 27 yards and a pick.By that point, contrastingly, Brees had expertly led three Saints touchdown drives – finding Tre-Quan Smith, Adam Trautman and Emmanuel Sanders in the endzone – and, following on from Brady’s interception, Alvin Kamara went over at the goal line for a fourth first-half score.- Advertisement – Saints 38-3 BuccaneersRyan Succop 48-yard field goal Tom Brady was intercepted three times and suffered the largest defeat of his career on Sunday night against the Saints Saints 21-0 BuccaneersDrew Brees 12-yard TD pass to Emmanuel Sanders (extra point) Drew Brees throws four touchdown passes to overtake Tom Brady for the most in NFL history (564 to 561); Antonio Brown has three catches for 31 yards in Buccaneers debut, while Michael Thomas had five grabs for 51 yards in his return for the Saints Last Updated: 09/11/20 5:48am Saints 7-0 BuccaneersDrew Brees 14-yard TD pass to Tre’Quan Smith (extra point)center_img SECOND QUARTER Tom Brady was intercepted three times and suffered the largest defeat of his career on Sunday night against the Saints
