Mike Evans suspended one game for pushing Marshon Lattimore

Saints vs. Tampa Bay: See the egregious late hit delivered by Buccaneers star player Saints come to Buffalo riding a six-game winning streak after 0-2 start

The Bucs host the Jets (and former Bucs QB Josh McCown) Sunday, followed by three straight road games - at the Miami Dolphins, Atlanta Falcons and Green Bay Packers, all playoff teams last season and all at.500 or above now.

The Saints are winning games and making history, the kind of history that has boded quite well for teams in the past.

Tensions ran high in the third quarter when Winston, already out of the game, pushed Saints cornerback Marshon Lattimore from the sideline, and when Lattimore turned around, Tampa Bay receiver Mike Evans slammed into Lattimore from the back, sparking a brief brawl.

Yes, that's a slight considering New Orleans' record, but it's also understandable. And the first two teams went on to win the Super Bowl: the 2007 New York Giants (six straight) and the 1993 Dallas Cowboys (seven straight).

New Orleans' defense limited the Buccaneers' standout receiving tandem of Mike Evans and DeSean Jackson to three catches for 38 yards.

The Saints are looking for their seventh win in a row this week on the road against the Buffalo Bills.

BIG BOUNCE: Hardee was a receiver at IL, and felt like one again as he located the rebound of his punt block, watched it into his hands and waltzed into the end zone for his first career touchdown.

Winston has struggled for the 2-6 Bucs this year, passing for 1,920 yards with 10 touchdowns, six interceptions, and five fumbles. Props to Damien Harris for flying to Lattimore's defense and grinding Evans into the turf.

Tampa is expected to activate Ryan Griffin from injured reserve this week and would carry three quarterbacks on the roster.

Folks, the Saints are becoming scary good.

"By no means was it flawless", Brees said.

Brees' touchdowns went for 33 yards to Alvin Kamara and 36 yards to Ted Ginn.

Lutz also missed a field goal from 43 yards. However, QB Drew Brees still feels like the teams best is yet to come.

"We're still striving to play our best game", Brees said. Carolina, despite a sound 34-13 loss to New Orleans in September, stayed right on the Saints' heels at 6-3 with a 20-17 win Sunday over 4-4 Atlanta.

Saints left tackle Terron Armstead took himself out of the game with a chest injury late in the first half, but said after the game that he was hurt on his first play and tried to play through it.

That doesn't bode well for the teams the Saints will face in the second half.
