Baker Mayfield guides Bucs past Saints, Derek Carr

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers defeated the New Orleans Saints 26-9 on Sunday afternoon, with Baker Mayfield throwing three touchdown passes and the Buccaneers’ defense preventing any touchdowns. Mayfield had an impressive performance, completing 25 of 32 passes for 246 yards. He threw touchdowns to Cade Otton, Trey Palmer, and Deven Thompkins. Saints running back Alvin Kamara made his season debut after serving a suspension, and quarterback Derek Carr played despite a shoulder injury. However, the Buccaneers held Kamara to limited yardage and Carr struggled, resulting in the Saints managing only 197 total yards and three field goals by Blake Grupe. Grupe’s field goal at the end of the third quarter brought the Saints within eight points, but the Buccaneers extended their lead with a 51-yard field goal by Chase McLaughlin and a 5-yard touchdown pass from Mayfield to Thompkins. After a Carr fumble, McLaughlin kicked another field goal to seal the victory. The game started with a field goal by Grupe, but the Buccaneers quickly took the lead with Mayfield’s touchdown pass to Otton. The Saints had a chance to stop the Buccaneers’ scoring drive, but an interception was followed by a fumble recovery by Tampa Bay, leading to another touchdown before halftime.
