5 Standouts from Buccaneers vs. Saints

A few players who impressed in the Buccaneers' Week 14 victory over the Saints.

Pictures from the Buccaneers' Week 14 match-up with the Saints.

1. S Keith Tandy
For the second week in a row, Tandy started at safety with Chris Conte injured. Tandy led the Buccaneers in tackles (9) and solo tackles (8) while also recording an interception and a tackle for a loss. In the second half, Tandy deflected a pass that would ultimately be intercepted by Brent Grimes, ending New Orleans' drive as they were approaching field goal range. Kwon Alexander was second on the team in tackles with seven, followed by Lavonte David and Bradley McDougald, who each had five.


  1. P Bryan Anger**
    Earlier this week, Buccaneers.com ran a feature on Anger, detailing his dominant season thus far. Anger continued to thrive against New Orleans, dropping two punts inside the 20-yard line, including one on the one-yard line. Anger had a long of 57 on the day and totaled 185 yards on four punts.

3. CB Vernon Hargreaves
Hargreaves recorded the first interception of his career, picking off Drew Brees at the start of the second quarter. Hargreaves' pick was one of three that the Buccaneers forced in their Week 14 victory, in addition to Tandy's and Grimes'. He finished the day with three tackles, all of which were solo.


  1. RB Doug Martin**
    As the weeks go by, the Buccaneers are leaning on Martin more and more. He carried the ball 23 times for 66 yards and scored the team's only touchdown, punching in a one-yard run in the first half. Martin also caught two passes for 19 yards. In his first game back since returning from injury, Charles Sims was used sparingly, carrying the ball four times for 17 yards.  

5. K Roberto Aguayo
The Buccaneers called Aguayo's number often, asking him to line up for three field goals. He connected on all three, hitting kicks from 26, 39 and 42 yards. Aguayo also connected on his only extra point attempt. In addition, just one of Aguayo's kickoffs were returned.
