The Saints lead the all-time series between these teams, 38-21, and have won the past six times they’ve faced off, including most recently on Halloween, winning at home 36-27. The last time they played in Tampa was in Nov. 2020, with the Saints getting a huge road win, 38-3. Even though the Bucs went on to win the Super Bowl last season, Tom Brady has yet to get one up on New Orleans as a division opponent.
The Buccaneers will clinch the NFC South division title with a win, or tie, against the Saints on Sunday, and they also have a chance to clinch a playoff berth if one of three scenarios pan out:
- Vikings lose or tie + Niners lose
- Vikings lose or tie + Eagles-WFT tie
- Niners lose + Eagles-WFT tie
