Raymond James Stadium, Tampa, FL
TAMPA, Fla. (AP) -- Joey Galloway slowed to a trot, holding the football in his hand like a loaf of bread.
With an extra long week to prepare, the Saints, well, they didn't look like they used the extra time wisely. Much like Indianapolis did in Week 1, Tampa Bay threw all over the Saints. With just 15 first-half rushing yards, including eight yards on nine carries by Cadillac Williams, Tampa Bay still led 21-0 at halftime. The Saints had no answer for Joey Galloway, who was the true difference maker in this football game. New Orleans has been exposed in these first two weeks as a team that simply cannot defend against the deep ball. Case in point was Galloway. There are few players in this league go can get vertical or create yards after the catch like Galloway. He still has a rare blend of speed and explosiveness and continues to defy time.
