TURBULENT MONDAY WATERS

By Marc Lawrence, PlaybookSports.com — You know it’s been a turbulent year for QB Tom Brady when his team owns a losing record and still sits atop its division. In fact, last Sunday’s overtime loss to Cleveland was the first time Brady lost a game that his team had led by 7 or more points with fewer than two minutes remaining in his star-studded career.

Meanwhile, the Saints were shut out 13-0 by the Niners last week, their first whitewashing since 2001 – the longest active skein in the NFL (332 games).

That’s a long time between drinks of water for Brady and the Saints.

With both teams struggling, the history book reminds us that the Saints are 7-1 ATS in the series, 5-1 ATS before a Bye week, and 5-1 ATS division road dogs, whereas the Bucs are 1-7 ATS as a favorite when favored the previous game.

The choppy waters continue for Brady tonight. Grab the points.
