The Buccaneers went into The Big Easy and came out with a win against the Saints, 30-20.  

Two big takeaways from this game were the Bucs defense and Jameis Winston.  

For the defense, they managed to intercept Drew Brees four times.  M.J. Stewart Jr., rookie Jah'Shawn Johnson, Vernon Hargreaves, and former Saint Ken Crawley all had an interception in this game.  Crawley would also have three impressive pass breakups that could have gone for first downs.  Gerald McCoy finally looked like his old self as he got to Drew Brees three times.  

For Jameis Winston, he was excellent.  He finished the game with a 143.7 passer rating and threw 4 touchdowns and zero interceptions.  Most of his production came in the first half but he made some impressive throws to help put the game out of reach for the Saints in the 4th quarter.
