Buccaneers 31, Saints 14

TAMPA, Fla. - At 35, Joey Galloway isn't showing any signs of slowing down. Just ask the bewildered New Orleans Saints, who never seem to be able to catch up with Tampa Bay's speedy receiver.

Galloway caught four passes for 135 yards and two touchdowns, tormenting the Saints for the sixth straight game between the NFC South rivals and leading the Buccaneers to a win.

The Saints were embarrassed for the second consecutive week and have been outscored 72-24 after having one of the NFL's most explosive offenses and reaching the NFC championship game last season.

Galloway has had some of his best games as a Buccaneer against New Orleans, scoring 10 touchdowns, nine receiving and one on a punt return, in six meetings.
