Brees, humbled Saints look to rebound against Buccaneers

TAMPA, Fla. (AP) Drew Brees looks at Tampa Bay and sees an opportunity for the New Orleans Saints to reassert themselves, though not necessarily because the Buccaneers have a young, inexperienced secondary.

The Bucs may rank last in the NFL in pass defense, but the veteran quarterback of the NFC South leaders - coming off a lopsided loss to the Atlanta Falcons - says he pays a lot more attention to game film than numbers while preparing for an opponent.

"I'm saying just in general, I don't look at statistics and then judge a defense or anyone based just on the statistics," Brees said. "I'm going to turn on the tape, I'm going to trust what I see, and then I'm going to go out to execute according to that."
