Buccaneers vs. Saints stay rating, updates, highlights from the sport & # 39; Sunday Night time Soccer & # 39;
Two future Hall of Fame quarterbacks will be on the field on Sunday Night Football in Week 9.
Tom Brady and the Buccaneers (6-2) will host Drew Brees and the Saints (5-2) in an NFC South rivalry game. Brees prevailed against Brady in Week 1 when New Orleans won 34-23. However, Tampa Bay has won six of its last seven and is currently at the top of the division standings in the half game.
Not only are Brady and Brees head-to-head fighting for division leadership, they're also battling for the NFL's previous touchdown record. Brady is ahead at 561, one ahead of Brees, but the two have seen all season. It should be noted that Brees, 41, played fewer than Brady, 43, in 11 games.
Of course, the quarterbacks won't be the only ones having a say in the game. Holy recipient Michael Thomas will play for seven weeks for the first time since the first week game against the Buccaneers following an ankle injury, a reported practice fight and a thigh problem. He should bring a welcome balance to the New Orleans offensive, which relies heavily on running back Alvin Kamara and the short passing game.
As for the Buccaneers, broad receiver Antonio Brown will make his debut. Many have questioned the signing as Brown has disrupted locker rooms in the past, but SN's Vinnie Iyer believes Tampa Bay is better placed to thrive with Brown. Brown will join the other guns of the Bucs, such as Mike Evans, Chris Godwin, Scotty Miller, Rob Gronkowski, Ronald Jones and Leonard Fournette.
