VIDEO: Tom Brady answers Saints with TD pass to Leonard Fournette

Tom Brady Leonard Fournette Buccaneers

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers and New Orleans Saints are currently entrenched in quite the NFC South battle as these two divisional rivals continue to go back and forth late into the evening on Sunday. With Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady duking it out with Saints quarterback Drew Brees in the first ever postseason matchup between these two NFC South foes, the final game of the 2020-21 divisional round is knotted at 20 with only the fourth quarter remaining.

However, the Buccaneers were most recently trailing 20-13 with the aforementioned Brady helping to turn things around in a hurry as the future Pro Football Hall of Fame signal caller managed to find running back Leonard Fournette for the touchdown to tie the game.

Leading to the red zone pitch and catch from Brady to Fournette, the Buccaneers defense initially forced the Saints to turn the football over while trailing by seven points late in the third quarter. Buccaneers rookie defensive back Antoine Winfield Jr. forced Saints tight end Jared Cook to fumble the football with Tampa Bay pass rusher Devin White quickly making the recovery.

With both offenses playing off of the effectiveness of their respective defenses, turnovers and trick plays have been the key factors in this memorable matchup. With the Buccaneers and Saints each showing up in a big way on defense en route to forcing a slew of turnovers and performing well on special teams, it will be interesting to see which team can ultimately pull away late in this contest with a meeting against the No. 1 seeded Green Bay Packers looming in the NFC title game.
