THUMBS UP

Saints LB Hau’oli Kikaha

The rookie linebacker was active with seven tackles (one for loss) and a forced fumble. Neither Kikaha, nor the defense as a whole, was the problem.

THUMBS DOWN

Saints QB Drew Brees

Saints fans were saying “Boo!” not “Drew!” He threw for a TD and 255 yards but was injured, intercepted, sacked four times and fumbled.

THUMBS DOWN

Saints CB Brandon Browner

Had three tackles and a pass deflection, but was also tagged with a 39-yard pass interference penalty in the end zone to set up the Bucs TD in the third.

THUMBS DOWN

Saints K Zach Hocker

Wide left on a 42-yard FG try after New Orleans recovered a fumble and had a PAT blocked, both helping squelch the Saints’ fourth-quarter rally.
