Creature of Bad Habits

Saints were the worst matchup for the Bucs.
Because Lattimore owns Evans and the Saints DL did really well against TB OL.
Saints beat themselves with turnovers. That was the game to beat TB.
Pats can tell you the only way to beat Brady is for your pass rush to get press and preferably pressure up the middle with 4 DL and then flood the slot on each side and play man to man on the other WRs.
Last night Brady got excellent protection and a running game so he could play action.
The GB game Brady had one bad INT, another where the WR should have caught and deflected right to a GB and then one the WR gave up on a route.
The NO game the Saints defensive plan was perfect and likely wins if they don’t turn it over.
There also seems to be this prevailing thought in the NFL that if it's the end of the first half and Tom Brady is at midfield, you don't have to cover anyone deep.
Two games in a row they get a gift TD on deep passes where a WR easily gets behind the DB. Last night ended up being PI, but didn't matter.
