What channel is Saints vs. Buccaneers on today? Schedule, time for ‘Sunday Night Football’ in Week 15

The New Orleans Saints have been a bit of a bugaboo for Bruce Arians’ Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He’s 1-5 against New Orleans in five regular season meetings as the Bucs’ head coach, but the Buccaneers got the better of the Saints in the playoffs last January in a 30-20 win en route to a Super Bowl victory. Regardless, after Jameis Winston went for the season in these two teams’ first meeting on Halloween, Trevor Siemian led the Saints to a 36-27 win in what might end up being the peak of the Saints’ season.

Since the Bucs’ loss to the Washington Football Team the week after that, Tampa has been rolling. They’ve won four straight games, most recently an overtime victory against the Buffalo Bills, and at 10-3 they sit atop the NFC alongside the Packers and Cardinals. Last week’s win snapped a streak of five straight games with an interception for Tom Brady, who looks like the favorite to win his fourth career MVP award.

There’s no denying, however, Dennis Allen’s Saints have given Brady’s Bucs issues. Last year on “Sunday Night Football,” the Saints ran away with a 38-3 win over the Bucs in primetime. Needless to say, circumstances are very different this year, but perhaps the Saints come in with some momentum after snapping a five-game losing streak against the Jets last week.

Taysom Hill is the other x-factor in any Saints game. However, the Buccaneers are third in the NFL against the run. The Saints are sixth in the league against the rush, which means this game has the potential to turn into an air raid. If that happens and Tampa is able to control the pace, it’s hard to imagine the Saints being able to keep up. They’ll have to force the Buccaneers to go against-type if they’re to have any type of chance against Tampa Bay this week.
