Before last night’s clash between the Bucs and the Saints, very few might’ve favored the Saints to pull off a victory. To shed light further, very few would have expected the Bucs to score no points. After all, the Tom Brady-led side has scored at least 30 points in the last four straight games before Week 15.

But come last night, the Bucs were a faint image of their usual self. Historically, Tom Brady has struggled against the Saints since joining the Bucs and last night was an encore. Yes, there were some minor injury concerns but the team had too much quality to lose against a struggling New Orleans side. All in all, it was a very disappointing performance from the Bucs.

“Where in the hell is the offensive line?”: Bucs fans upset with team’s offensive display

Tampa Bay arguably displayed their worst offensive performance in recent memory against the Saints last night. With a side boasting the likes of Tom Brady and Antonio Brown, the offensive display was simply shambolic. The GOAT for instance could only turn the ball twice and was sacked for a record four times by the Saints defense.

Speaking about his team’s performance, the seven-time Superbowl winner acknowledged his team’s sloppiness. “I don’t think we were much good at anything tonight,” said Brady. He further explained that the team was particularly disappointing in the offense and needed to improve. “I wish it was just one thing. It was a lot of things. We have got to do better in every facet of offensive football to score points. We’re not going to win scoring no points.”

No Tampa Bay fan saw this performance coming and rightly so. Post-match, Bucs fans took to Twitter to share their frustration. Following are some of the best reactions!
