Same as the second game against the Falcons the NFC South is probably the most improved division since 2014, but the two bottom teams in the NFC East (Falcons and Buccaneers) will still have a good amount of ground to cover before they can really think about taking away the top two's thrones. I predict this second meeting between these two to come out to Saints: 31 to Buccaneers: 21.
The first meeting between these two district rivals in the 2014-2015 season won't be full of to much excitement, I expect the preceding games to set the standard for this game even though the Buccaneers have made massive changes to their line-up since last year including the coach. I predict Saints: 35 to Buccaneers: 17.
