Tampa Bay took a fourth quarter lead when Drew Brees hit linebacker Mason Foster and he rumbled down the sideline for a long interception return for touchdown. The Bucs frustrated Brees all day, hitting him in the backfield frequently. On the final drive, Tampa Bay moved the ball down the field with passes to Vincent Jackson, but stalled on the outside of scoring territory. Rian Lindell missed a 47 yard field goal, setting New Orleans up with good field position and 1:06 remaining and no timeouts.
Brees hit three straight passes, including the back breaker to Marques Colston down the seam that allowed New Orleans to spike the ball and kick the final points.
