Who will win the turnover margin? When a team has stumbled through a season, coming up on the wrong end of the turnover margin is nearly always one of the causes. In this case, the Saints have given away the ball like Santa Claus handing out candy canes in a shopping mall. Their quarterbacks have combined to throw 12 interceptions, the second most in the league. Their nine lost fumbles are the second-highest total of any team.
Tampa had the ball twice in overtime but managed just 34 total yards as Cleveland put together a drive in the waning seconds and Nick Chubb sealed the victory with a three-yard touchdown. New Orleans leads the head-to-head series 39-23, but Tampa Bay's home win in Week 2 snapped the Saints' streak of eight straight wins in the regular season. Now the Buccaneers aim for their first home win over the division rivals since Week 17 of the 2017 season.
The Saints were shut out for the first time since their regular-season finale during the 2001 season, as the offense couldn't get anything going against the 49ers' top-ranked defense. That wasted another solid effort by New Orleans' defense. Tampa Bay also came up short on the road last week, falling 23-17 in overtime at Cleveland. The Buccaneers led 17-10 with a little more than seven minutes left in the third quarter but didn't score again, punting on their next four possessions before the clock expired on the final one of regulation right after the Browns tied the game on a touchdown with 32 seconds remaining.

Opponents have sacked Brady only on 3. 5 percent of his pass attempts, the lowest rate in the league. Brady is certainly known for getting rid of the ball quickly, but given the Buccaneers' struggles running the ball (last in the league at 73 rushing yards per game), and the fact that the team had to reshuffle its line this offseason due to some key departures, that makes their pass protection success look even more impressive. However, the line will be tested in the weeks ahead with starting right tackle Tristan Wirfs expected to miss several games after suffering an ankle injury during overtime last week.

Brady may not be having an MVP-caliber season to this point, but he can't blame this offensive line for that. Tampa Bay has allowed just 17 sacks (all of Brady), the second fewest of any team in the NFL.
On the other side, New Orleans' defensive struggles cannot be blamed on a lack of a pass rush. The Saints have 33 sacks, which places them among the top 10 in the league. They have done this despite blitzing only 17. 8 percent of the time on passing attempts, the ninth-lowest rate. In the first meeting in Week 2, New Orleans only sacked Brady once but did a good job of not letting him get too comfortable in the pocket, as he went just 18-of-34 for 190 yards and a touchdown. He didn't throw an interception, but he did lose a fumble. The Saints will try to apply even more pressure on Monday night against what will be a shorthanded Tampa line.
Ways to Watch: Saints vs Buccaneers | 2022 NFL Week 13SAINTS VS. BUCCANEERS GAME PREVIEWThe New Orleans Saints (4-8) will go on the road for the second-consecutive week following Sunday's 13-0 loss at the San Francisco 49ers, to face the Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Raymond James Stadium, who enter the game at 5-6. The "Monday Night Football" contest will be nationally televised on ESPN (WVUE-FOX 8 locally). The Saints and the Buccaneers have met 61 times in the regular season and once in the postseason, with New Orleans holding a 39-22 regular season advantage and Tampa Bay having captured the only playoff contest. In addition to looking to avenge the 20-10 loss to the Buccaneers at the Caesars Superdome on Sept. 18, the Saints remain very much alive in an NFC South race where a victory would secure a season series split and close an already close division race with Tampa Bay.
How to Watch: Saints vs Buccaneers
Fournette leads the way with 462 rushing yards and three of the four touchdowns on the ground, but he missed last week's game because of a hip injury. He's been a full practice participant, so there's a good chance he'll be back on Monday night. Fournette ran for 65 yards on 24 carries in the teams' first meeting as the Bucs totaled just 72 yards on the ground (2. 7 ypc). White is next with 286 yards and the other rushing touchdown, but he's had more success as a receiver (29 rec., 6.

2 ypr) than a runner (74 att., 3. 9 ypc) thus far. Brady is the only other player on the roster who has logged double-digit carries, although his lack of mobility is no secret. New Orleans' efforts against the run have been a bit of a mixed bag this season. The Saints have given up more than 200 rushing yards in a game twice, but they also have held three teams to 75 or fewer, including Tampa in Week 2.
Overall, New Orleans ranks 22nd in the league at 129. 1 rushing yards allowed per game. Given each team's body of work in this matchup, the Saints should have the advantage on Monday night even if Fournette returns to tag-team with White in the backfield. This is another area where Wirfs' absence at right tackle could show up. 3.
