20-17.- - after the new orleans saints- lost to the tampa bay - buccaneers, - in the first week of the regula- season... the two teams went in- ntntntntntnt directions.- but will sunday's re-match- provide a very different- outcome...- well, a recent 10-game winning- streak would certainly- suggest as much... especially - considering the - black and gold haven't given up- more than 40 points in a game..- since that week 1 defeat.
- on the flip side... the bucs- proceeded to drop seven out - of eight, following a 2-0 - start... but have recently hit- their stride, with two straight- wins.
- exactly three months later... - revenge isn't really the focus,- for the saints... with somethin- much more important, on - the line... in week 14.
- - "bottom line is we control our destiny right - now.
We win this game, we win - the division.
And that's the- first step, first goal that we- set for - ourselves this season was to- accomplish that and then we'll- - - - worry about the next goal.
But- that's significant.
Like you- said, this division has been on- where it's highly competitive.- and - each and every year it seems- like there's a different team o- sets of teams that are all- - - - fighting for it at the end and- then one of us gets it.
But - yeah, that'd be a big first ste- is win the- division with a win this week."
- - - kick-off between the saints and- bucs is set for noon, on- sunday... from tampa.
