New Orleans Saints at Tampa Bay Buccaneers first quarter update: Saints 10, Bucs 7

Posted Sep 15, 2013

Game was delayed for 69 minutes in opening period

New Orleans Saints at Tampa Bay Buccaneers first quarter update: After the threat of lightning caused the game to be delayed for 69 both the Saints' and Bucs' offense got in gear Sunday at Raymond James Stadium.

The Bucs took a 7-3 lead when quarterback Josh Freeman hit Kevin Ogletree on a 5-yard touchdown pass. The Bucs were set up in great field position after Dekoda Watson intercepted Saints quarterback Drew Brees.
