Buccaneers of the Week: at Saints

The Buccaneers lost a football game on Sunday afternoon for the first time in over a month, falling 36-27 to the Saints. It was an extremely avoidable loss, and Tampa Bay will now have its entire bye week to think on it and come back better in Week 10.

Turnovers and penalties put the Bucs down 23-7 by the midway point in the third quarter before a furious comeback gave them a 27-26 lead with 5:44 left in the game. But then those penalty problems reared their ugly head again, allowing the Saints to take a late lead.
