Saints march down field, go up 28-21 at half time

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers gave the ball back to the Saints at the two-minute warning. Anyone want to guess what happened next? Yep, Saints go down the field and score a touchdown. The Bucs defense is getting slaughtered - they can't cover anyone, and the defensive line isn't doing much either.

Drew Brees has completed 20 of 25 passes for 313 yards, four touchdowns and one interception - and he's done so in a single half. That includes a spike, by the way. The Bucs offense has been okay - but it can't keep up with the New Orleans juggernaut playing a terrible defense. The Bucs need some half-time adjustments.

It's so bad, that Jimmy Graham's replacement David Thomas is getting in on the action. He scored the last touchdown on a terribly easy walk into the endzone. I don't know who was supposed to be covering him out of the eight people in coverage, but that basically describes every play at this point.
