New Orleans Saints vs Tampa Bay Buccaneers NFL Divisional Round: Start time and how to watch

Legendary quarterbacks Drew Brees and Tom Brady are set for one last dance when they meet in the NFL playoffs for the first time. Here’s how to watch in Canada.

Incredibly, for all their success, Drew Brees and Tom Brady have never met in the NFL playoffs. That’s largely because until this season they have been playing in different conferences. But Brady’s move south to Tampa opened the door for the oldest quarterback meeting in league history.

Brees, expected to retire after this season, is 42 and Brady is 43, prompting the latter to quip that this game should be played on the History Channel. Brees’ Saints progressed to the final eight with a comfortable win over the Chicago Bears. And Brady’s Buccaneers accounted for the Washington Football Team.

Who will winSaints vs Tampa Bay?

Tampa Bay has been a nightmare to get a handle on this season. One of the most inconsistent teams in the NFL, when it clicks it’s scary. Brady has a clutch of outstanding receiving targets in Chris Godwin, Mike Evans, Antonio Brown and Rob Gronkowski.

Brady’s playoff resume is also incomparable so it is risky to bet against the Bucs. But the Saints are a more road-tested organisation and boast the superior coach in Sean Payton. Throw in a strong defence and outstanding offensive weapons Alvin Kamara and Michael Thomas and we’ll opt for the Saints by a nose.
