The Tampa Bay Buccaneers, in need of help from the New York Giants and Green Bay Packers make the most interesting case for a compelling “must-see” game. The Young Bucs will be in the Big Easy taking on the resurgent New Orleans Saints. The Saints survived a sub-par performance by quarterback Drew Brees to win on the road in Atlanta last Monday night. With the world watching, the Saints made a case for themselves as the team to beat in the NFC. Today, the Bucs will bring the fight to a team that still has something to play for: a division title. Both of these teams would love nothing more than for the front runners to open the door with a loss at Carolina. Regardless of the outcome of those games, both Tampa Bay and New Orleans have a lot to play for. Pride!
In other games, the needy and the greedy will be separated for better or worse. Green Bay just needs a win. Will the Packers try to go for too many home runs to get the job done? Will the slow and steady Bears win the race?
