NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Tom Brady’s best game in three tries against New Orleans has the Buccaneers moving on in the NFL playoffs and Saints quarterback Drew Brees headed home — perhaps for good.
Brady and the Bucs’ offense turned three of the Saints' four turnovers, which included three Brees interceptions, into touchdowns, and Tampa Bay beat New Orleans 30-20 in the divisional round of the NFL playoffs.
Two touchdowns came on short passes to Mike Evans and Leonard Fournette. Brady also scored on a 1-yard run.
The Bucs advance to the NFC championship game in Green Bay.
