Week 8 came out to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers as a surprise as, despite a good spell by Tom Brady, they suffered their second loss of the season against New Orleans Saints. The 36-27 scoreline, in the end, was much of a disappointment to the Brady-led Bucs as now their run is shrunk to 6-2 so far this season.

Tampa Bay, after overcoming a 23-7 deficit in the second half, took the lead in the fourth quarter of the game. But Brady’s three turnovers striped the Buccaneers of a victory. Dennis Allen’s defense did wonders in the game, forcing three turnovers against a team that turned the ball over just three times over the previous six games.
