Saints Report: Saints dominate Buccaneers in 34-23 win

- for the first time in league- history... sunday's game- between the new orleans saints- and tampa bay buccaneers... - featured two quarterbacks, over- the age of 40... on the same- field.- but drew brees and tom brady- aren't just any old - quarterbacks... ranking first - and second, respectively... in- all-time passing yards... and - touchdowns.

- - - - - - there's brady donning some new- threads... after spending - his first 20 years in the - league, with the patriots...- brees - still rock solid entering his - age 41 season.- and how about this first drive- by the bucs... as brady gets hi- first tampa bay touchdown... bu- it's not a pass... it's a - two-yard- q-b sneak... and a gronk spike- to celebrate... visitors go up- - - - 7- nothing early.

- but the black and gold would- respond... as they seem to- always do... brees hooking up - with the new money man... alvin- kamara on the screen... and he- does the rest... earning every- bit - of that 75 million over five- years... saints tie it, at- 7-all.- and that was just the start of - 24-nothing run, for new - orleans... this time giving it- to kamara, on the ground... sam- result... touchdown saints, fro- six yards out... just - a friendly reminder how good he- is when he's truly- healthy... 14-zero who dat's.

- and this was the early dagger,- for the bucs... janoris jenkins- - - - jumps the out route... and the- jack rabbit is taking this one- all the way back to the house..- 24-7 saints.- new orleans takes this one by - the final score, of 34-23... in- front - of an empty superdome.- - "pretty quiet.

But listen, this- is the new- normal - at least for now.- hopefully we get some fans in - the stadium soon if we- can get everybody in the state- on board with that.

But in the- - - - meantime, we've just got to tak- care of business.

Create our ow- energy is what we stressed this- week.

- no preseason games, you try to- simulate during practice with - situations and going- against your own defense and- trying to put yourself in that- moment.

But - obviously you come out here,- typically you feed off the crow- and hey, it's the start of the- season.

So things were a little- different.

There were definitel- - - - a lot of mistakes i think all - the way around, but we also mad- a lot of good plays.

Defense, a- couple of huge turnovers, pick- six, special teams got a- turnover.

Offensively, i- think there's a lot more to be- desired there.

We can do a lot- - - - better job."- next up for the saints... a - monday night football showdown,- against the raiders... for the- first n-f-l game... ever played- in- las vegas.- - but even that's gonna be hard t- top the television- rating, from sunday's game... - which received a 16.2 overnight- rating... a four-year high, for- a fox week 1 game... and the- biggest t-v audience, since the- super bowl.

- on a down note... star wideout- michael thomas suffered a high- ankle sprain, during the win...- but says it's something he- believes he can
