BUCS (6.5) AT VIKINGS:
Tampa's defense got exposed by the Saints, but so have a lot of teams by Drew Brees. The task won't be as difficult this week against a Vikings' offense that didn't do much in a so-so win over the short-handed Cardinals. The crowd in Minny will be pumped for a national TV game and that will carry them in another sloppy, grind-it-out win.
Vikings 23, Bucs 20RAIDERS (1.5) AT CHIEFS
Good luck to all those wanting to wager on this one. Yikes. The Raiders, as we all know, have owned the Chiefs of late, winning six of the last nine and five straight at Arrowhead. There should also be plenty of motivation on the Oakland side a win here puts them in the AFC West race (sort of). And these Raiders aren't your father's Raiders they don't lead the league in penalties any more. They are weak in the secondary, however, and on paper, one ...
BEST OF MAXIM
The Saints are shockingly bad this season. I did not expect them to be affected this much by the loss of their head coach. Drew Brees has decided he has to share his opinion on all the big issues in the NFL after being out front during the lock-out and now with the bounty scandal. He's actually becoming obnoxious. He needs to spend more time preparing and less time complaining...
Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning reportedly is the new owner of 21 Papa Johns pizza stores in the Denver area.
(Eds: Updates. With AP Photos.) By GUERRY SMITH Associated Press Drew Brees believes the Saints' offense is close to where it needs to be.
Even without injured Pro Bowl tight end Jimmy Graham, the Saints had five touchdowns in a six-possession span at Tampa Bay in a 35-28 win.
''Definitely you feel that no matter what play is called, we're going to make it work...
Andrew Juge of the Saints Nation stops by to discuss the Saints win in Tampa. He explains how the offense finally started to click by using great pass protection, the long ball, and Joe Morgan's super powers. He also thinks the running game is close to breaking out.
Ralph and Andrew then discuss the defense and they want just want one thing from it; To stop being the worst...
New Orleans Saints (2-4) at Denver Broncos (3-3) Drew Brees looks like Drew Brees again. He struggled, by his standards, in his first few games out of the gate, but you had to figure that eventually he’d get it together, even without Sean Payton, because he’s just too talented. In his last 3 games, he’s [...]
WHAT DID HE SAY?
Washington Redskins rookie quarterback Robert Griffin III has proved to be a very mature, highly savvy young man that belies his age and experience, both on the field and off of it. But if he’s anything like most people — which is arguable — RG3 probably cringed after recently taking part in an interview with [...]
Denver Broncos’ cornerback Tracy Porter has a thread in history with both Peyton Manning and Drew Brees.
When he was a member of the New Orleans Saints, his interception of Peyton Manning in the 2010 Super Bowl put the final nail in the Indianapolis Colts’ championship bid.
Manning along with Porter are now teammates fighting together and their team is poised to take on Brees...

The last time Peyton Manning and Drew Brees met - in Super Bowl XLIV - the game ended with Brees and the New Orleans Saints raising the Lombardi Trophy.
Manning will be looking for a bit of revenge Sunday night as the Denver Broncos host the Saints, who play their first game under interim coach Joe Vitt.
A lot has changed since that matchup in February 2010. Of course, Manning...

Last week: 19 (+7) Record: 2-4 The Saints are no longer the favorite to be this year’s team that goes from out of the playoffs to 5 wins or fewer, but they’re still not a playoff team or anything like that. Only one team has ever made the playoffs after starting 0-4. Drew Brees has [...]

Tampa Bay Buccaneers @ Minnesota VikingsTampa Bay: The Buccaneers come off a heartbreaking loss to the New Orleans Saints, dropping them to 2-4. They led the Saints in the first half, but then Drew Brees brought his team storming back to take the lead. Josh Freeman showed some mettle, going toe to toe and punch for punch with Brees, only to essentially run out of time and real...
