 Saints shut out Bucs, end Brady’s streak.

The New Orleans Saints put on a dominant performance on Sunday night, shutting out the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and ending quarterback Tom Brady’s impressive streak of consecutive games with a touchdown pass.

The Saints defense was the star of the show, holding the Buccaneers to just 194 total yards and intercepting Brady three times. The veteran quarterback, who had thrown at least one touchdown pass in 39 straight games, was held without a score for the first time since 2016.

It was a statement win for the Saints, who had lost their previous two games and were in danger of falling out of the playoff race. But they came out firing on all cylinders, with quarterback Drew Brees throwing two touchdown passes and running back Alvin Kamara rushing for 40 yards and a score.

The Saints defense, which had struggled in recent weeks, looked like a completely different unit on Sunday night. They were relentless in their pursuit of Brady, sacking him three times and forcing him to make several errant throws.

The shutout was the first for the Saints since 2012, and it couldn’t have come at a better time. With just three games remaining in the regular season, the Saints are now tied with the Buccaneers for first place in the NFC South.

For Brady, the loss was a rare blemish on an otherwise impressive season. The 43-year-old quarterback has thrown for 3,300 yards and 28 touchdowns this year, leading the Buccaneers to a 7-6 record.

But on Sunday night, he was outplayed by Brees and the Saints, who showed that they are still a force to be reckoned with in the NFC. With a tough schedule ahead, including games against the Kansas City Chiefs and Minnesota Vikings, the Saints will need to continue playing at a high level if they hope to make a deep playoff run.

But for now, they can savor their impressive win over the Buccaneers and the end of Brady’s touchdown streak. It was a night to remember for the Saints and their fans, and a reminder that they are still one of the best teams in the NFL.
