The Tampa Bay Buccaneers went out on the road and dominated the Saints 29-6, and fans and internet watchers had plenty to say about it.
It was a game dominated by the Bucs just about the whole way through, with Tampa Bay stifling an anemic Saints offense and putting up three touchdowns on offense themselves to win by 17 points. With the win, the Bucs are ahead in the NFC South heading into the team’s bye week to rest up. Tampa Bay has won three games in a row against the Saints under head coach Todd Bowles.
Here’s a bit of what social media had to say about Tampa Bay’s big win in the Big Easy:
Nah… he's right. Back to where they've been – first place in the South https://t.co/kZHpqicRQl

Cameron Jordan might be right.
It has to be competitive to be a rivalry.
And it's not.
2x NFC South champion #Bucs win, 26-9.
Tampa Bay head coach Todd Bowles is now 3-0 vs. New Orleans.
