The New Orleans Saints have beaten their division-rival Tampa Bay Buccaneers 35-28. They had to hold on at the end to win, but the eked out a victory and improved to 2-4 on the season.

This game marked the return of Jonathan Vilma, who is back from his Bountygate suspension and made his first appearance since the Saints-49ers playoff game. Despite getting one of their leaders back, the Saints were without two starters, Jimmy Graham and David Hawthorne.

Meanwhile, Tampa Bay broke out its throwback uniforms, and their pass defense played like the '70s-era Bucs teams, but Josh Freeman didn't.

Freeman kept it interesting, but in the end New Orleans continued their winning streak after starting the year with four straight losses.
