Tampa Bay Buccaneers vs. New Orleans Saints: Live Score, Highlights and Analysis

Jason Bernos@Berns247Contributor IIDecember 16, 2012

The New Orleans Saints beat their division-rival Tampa Bay Buccaneers 41-0 at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome today on Fox.

Both teams were coming off of tough losses, but there was only one team to show up in this matchup, and that was the home team.

The Saints played their most complete game of the year, and it showed despite putting two starters on injured reserve earlier in the week.

This win keeps New Orleans' very dim playoff hopes alive, but, hopefully, it builds more on the 2013 campaign than the present.
