Sunday Night Football open thread: Saints at Buccaneers

Two legends battle for the NFC South.

It’s practically a Hall of Fame game tonight on Sunday Night Football. Two of the best quarterbacks to ever play face off, one of them in new colors.

Tom Brady’s transition from New England to Tampa Bay has been a success so far. A 6-2 record is looking great compared, especially given that the Patriots are sitting at 2-5. The offense is living up to the hype associated with the big names, even with some injuries in the mix. The addition of Antonio Brown is a huge question mark, given his recent history, but if the play is there, watch out.

The New Orleans Saints aren’t too shabby either. Sitting at 5-2, the NFC South is a fierce battle between the Saints and Bucs. Drew Brees will happily get Michael Thomas back on offense. In the weeks prior, Alvin Kamara was a workhorse on the ground and in the air, so expect a more diverse attack tonight. New Orleans won the first matchup against Tampa Bay in Week 1, and they will look for a repeat.

Here’s how to watch:

Date: Sunday, November 8, 2020
Time: 8:20 p.m. ET
Location: Raymond James Stadium - Tampa, FL
Announcers: Al Michaels (play-by-play), Cris Collinsworth (analyst), Michele Tafoya (sidelines)
