The New Orleans Saints bounced back from last week’s loss to the Atlanta Falcons with an impressive performance against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

The Saints’ defense intercepted Tampa bay quarterback Jamies Winston four times Sunday afternoon en route to a 34-17 victory. 

Demario Davis, Vonn Bell, P.J. Williams and Marcus Williams all logged interceptions as the Saints moved to 8-2 on the season.

The Saints also sacked Winston twice Sunday.

New Orleans’ offense also had a better outing this week after being held to just three field goals in its prior game.

Quarterback Drew Brees threw three touchdown passes to go along with his 228 yards. 

Michael Thomas lead all receivers with 114 yards and a touchdown on eight receptions.

Tight end Jared Cook and receiver Ted Ginn Jr. also had touchdown receptions.
