Tom Brady vs
Drew Brees Andy Dalton.
If only we had a Hot Tub Time Machine on this December night to travel back to 2020 for another Brady-Brees MNF spectacle, but I digress.
Instead, the Saints will trot out Andy Dalton, who has lost 12-straight primetime games. What a feat!
I expected to see Jameis Winston back under center in Week 13, but we’ve even been deprived of the Jameis-in-Tampa revenge game narrative.
Somehow the NFL’s biggest Grinch, Roger Goodell, must be responsible for this.
Perhaps Winston is a step closer to regaining the starting gig, after matching Dalton’s 0-point output against the Niners without playing a snap.
At 35 years old, the Red Rifle’s best days are in the rearview, and his production has been in a nosedive since peaking in 2016. He should get yanked early on if the Saints’ offense continues to sputter.
Tampa Bay has weathered an injury tsunami that’s decimated their offensive line, along with a flurry of ailments to their pass-catchers. But if it weren’t for their overtime loss in Cleveland last week, they’d be on a 3-game winning streak.
It’s an interesting blend of Dalton hate and Brady love in the air tonight, and the Bucs just have a far superior Captain, that can plunder with the best of ’em under the bright lights.
The Bucs are primed to get back to the .500 mark and extend their NFC South lead. Fire up the TD Cannons!
