The Tampa Bay Buccaneers defense is the one that carries them to the NFC championship game

Two of the greatest quarterbacks of all time, perhaps for the last time Tom Brady leads the Tampa Bay Buccaneers to New Orleans to face Drew Brees and the Saints from the Superdome in the final game of the NFC Divisional Playoffs

Last Sunday, the Saints (13-4) advanced to the second round, defeating the Bears 21-9. Brees went 28 of 39 for 265 yards with two touchdown passes

The day before the Saints took care of business, the Bucs (12-5) took to the streets and beat the Washington Football Team 31-23.Brady tossed all over the field and went 22 of 40 for 381 yards with two touchdowns

The Saints won both meetings this year in a battle between NFC South rivals. Can Brady finally get a win against the Saints? Or is Brees marching with his team to a Super Bowl victory?

The Buccaneers will now face the Green Bay Packers in the NFC championship game at Lambeau Field next Sunday
