Gridiron Gab Rapid Recap: Saints Survive Wild Finish to Top Bucs 35-28

Putting the ball in the hands of Drew Brees is usually a good thing. Sunday, he took the Saints on his shoulders, leading New Orleans to a wild 35-28 win over the Bucs that came down to the games final play.

Tampa Bay appeared to have tied the game when Josh Freeman hit Mike Williams with a 9-yard TD pass on the games last play, but Williams went out of bounds before catching the pass, and therefore it was ruled illegal touching, ending the game.

Brees was outstanding, overcoming an early 14-0 deficit as he would up going 27-for-37 for 377 yards with four TD’s and a pick with a QB rating of 130.1 on the day.

The Saints QB went back and forth with Bucs QB Freeman, who also played well in the setback. Freeman threw for 420 yards with three touchdowns, and nearly lead his team back before finally falling in the end.
