METAIRIE M.J. Stewart Jersey , La. (AP) — No matter how much New Orleans’ defense may have improved since this season’s opening week, linebacker Alex Anzalone doesn’t see the benefit in dismissing as irrelevant the 48 points the Saints surrendered in a Week 1 loss to the Buccaneers.“In the back of our minds, if anything, it’s just motivation to be on your Ps and Qs this week,” Anzalone said this week, as New Orleans prepared for the rematch in Tampa Bay. “They do have a really good offense. They have a bunch of play makers, so we know what they’re capable of. There’s a lot of motivation for this game, but as a defense, that could definitely be one of them.”In Week 1, New Orleans’ busted coverages led to a 529-yard day for the Buccaneers’ offense, highlighted by touchdown passes of 58 and 36 yards to DeSean Jackson and 50 yards to Mike Evans. Tampa Bay’s offense accounted 41 points, with one Buccaneers TD coming on safety Justin Evans‘ fumble return.Yet the Saints defense that was on the field that day scarcely resembles the one playing practically lights out for the past month.The Saints have held each of their last four foes to between 7 and 17 points.“That’s huge in this league when you can hold a team to under 20 points, especially with the offense we’ve got Jameis Winston Jersey ,” Saints defensive tackle Sheldon Rankins said. “I’m going to bet on us most times.”Confidence is surging. Botched assignments are few. Sacks and turnovers have risen sharply. New Orleans has sacked opposing QBs 13 times in the past two games, during which they’ve also taken the ball away six times.“It’s been impressive,” Saints coach Sean Payton said. “As a coach, you’re encouraged because we’re receiving good end play, but we’re also receiving great tackle play and I think inside we’ve really been able to push the pocket.”Those recent performances have made New Orleans’ season-opening stumble look more like ancient history.“That was a lot of first-game errors that we had to work out,” Anzalone said. “It wasn’t necessarily who we were as a defense. It was just something that we weren’t locked in enough or didn’t execute enough to get the job done.”Rankins, a first round draft choice in 2016, is having arguably his best season with seven sacks. Five of his sacks have come since Week 8.Like the rest of the Saints defense, he did not have a sack in Week 1.If the Bucs study game video from their previous meeting, Rankins said, they’ll see the same scheme New Orleans us using now, but vastly different execution.“With the way we’ve been playing, I think they’re going to have to try to attack us in a different way Mike Evans Jersey ,” he said.Buccaneers coach Dirk Koetter said he sees a Saints defense that has “evolved,” both in terms of young players improving as well as with some key personnel changes, such as a mid-season trade to bring in cornerback Eli Apple from the New York Giants. Apple quickly took over as starter in place of Ken Crawley.“Their defense is playing pretty well at this time, all the way across,” Koetter said.If New Orleans’ defense has been consistent in one area, it has been against the run. The Saints have been near the top of the NFL in that department all season and rank first through 12 games, and that’s not simply because opponents are choosing to pass more against them, Koetter said.“They’re playing with the lead a lot, and teams are throwing the ball,” Koetter began. “Still, when you watch the tape you go, ‘Man these guys are pretty good against the run.’ I think their front seven is really playing hard.”Notes: WR Michael Thomas practiced fully on Thursday after resting his sore ankle on Wednesday. … Offensive tackles Terron Armstead (chest) and Ryan Ramczyk (shoulder) were listed as limited on the practice report.

EDTShareTweetShareShareNFL Draft Round 1 Winners and LosersKirby Lee-USA TODAY SportsBuccaneer fans, the time has finally come and gone. Are we happy? We’ll leave Tampa Bay out of the winners and losers all together here but it would be asinine to not touch on it. Devin White, welcome to Tampa Bay. We really knew this all along didn’t we? It has been said for months that the team was in love with them and what else can be said? Bruce Arians and Jason Licht got Todd Bowles one heck of a chess piece to take into battle. Devin White will be a staple of this defense for years to come and will immediately make an impact and become a fan favorite. Much more to come from the team at Bucs Nation on Devin White, now lets get on to the NFL’s Winners and Losers from round one.Winners: Washing Redskins - Arguably the biggest winners on day one here as they get quarterback Dwayne Haskins whom many pegged to go inside the top 5. Haskins will immediately compete for the starting job with Alex Smith expected to miss the entire 2019 season. The future is now for Washington and they will hitch their wagon to the Ohio State product. Carolina Panthers - It pains me to give kudos to a divisional opponent but the Carolina Panthers got themselves a good one in Brian Burns. Burns lasted all the way to pick 16 and will get to line up against a set of the sketchiest tackle duos in the NFL twice a season in Demar Dotson and Donovan Smith. My favorite moment of the evening by far was watching the Hampton family winning season tickets to the New York Giants for 100 years. Though in our loser section one may say this fantastic moment was short lived, more on that below. Losers:Marcus Mariota - How can a player not drafted be the biggest loser? Simple. Look no further than the Titans quarterback attempting to get things started in Tennessee with this awesome hype job. Okay okay it wasn’t that awful, but come on Marcus, could ya act a bit more excited? Athletes lives are changing forever here, come on now. New York football Giants (Or maybe the Hampton family) - New Quarterback, who dis? The Giants selected Duke quarterback Daniel Jones to pair with Saquon Barkley. Jones may very well end up being a very good quarterback, but the fact that the team passed on arguably a much better draft class for quarterbacks for a running back and followed it up with Daniel Jones will not sit well for Giants fans. Indianapolis Colts - When you give up a first round pick and take yourself out of day one for just a second round pick (20 spots later) this year and next years second... it makes fans scratch their head. There’s no real way to look at this as a victory at this point in time. What were you thinking Indy?What say you fellow Buccaneer fans? Who were your biggest winners and losers from day one of the NFL Draft? Plenty of interesting picks to go around on day one, * cough * Raiders * cough *. Let’s hear everyone’s thoughts in the comment section below.
