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.
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.
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.
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.
