Well, that sucked.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers had a great shot at making a major statement in front of a national audience on Sunday Night Football, but couldn’t get the job done thanks to Drew Brees and the New Orleans Saints. Tampa Bay’s division rival destroyed the Bucs, 38-3, and made them look more like a 2-6 team rather than a 6-2 one.

Instead of a 7-2 record with a with a one game lead over the 5-3 Saints, the Bucs now find themselves in second in place looking up to the Saints.

Sunday Night Football showed a graphic that said Tampa Bay’s chances of winning the NFC South would drop from the mid-60 percentile to the mid-30 percentile if the Bucs were to lose this game. So, it certainly looks like an uphill battle from here.

Be sure to join me and fellow comrade Jason Curtis as we give our initial thoughts on everything that went down in what is known as the Great Sunday Night Debacle.
