Bucs Hope For Good Ground Game Vs Saints

Bucs_Doug_Martin_2012TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — The Tampa Bay Buccaneers face Drew Brees twice a season, so they know it takes more than a sturdy defense to slow down the New Orleans Saints quarterback.

A revamped secondary led by cornerback Darrelle Revis figures to be one of the keys to the team’s chances for success when the NFC South rivals meet Sunday, however the Bucs also are hoping their sputtering offense can do its part to help contain one of the NFL’s top passers.

That’s where Doug Martin comes in.

The Pro Bowl running back was limited to 65 yards rushing in a season-opening loss, and the Bucs likely will need more production out of him to beat the Saints.
