METAIRIE, La. (AP) — No matter how much New Orleans' defense may have improved since this season's opening week, linebacker Alex Anzalone doesn't see the benefit in dismissing as irrelevant the 48 points the Saints surrendered in a Week 1 loss to the Buccaneers.
TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — DeSean Jackson's frustration grows by the loss.
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have dropped five of six games following a 2-0 start, and the veteran receiver doesn't want anyone to buy the notion that all it'll take to make him happy is to catch more passes Sunday against the Washington Redskins.
The Bucs (3-5) haven't made the playoffs since 2007, and the only way to change that trend is to start winning.
BEREA, Ohio (AP) — Stopping the NFL's top-ranked passing offense got more daunting for the Browns.
Starting cornerback E.J. Gaines will miss Sunday's game at Tampa Bay because of a concussion, further challenging a Cleveland defense also without Pro Bowl linebacker Joe Schobert, who could be out several weeks with a hamstring injury.
ATLANTA (AP) — The Atlanta Falcons finally got the ball to bounce their way.
They hope that's the start of more good fortune.
After a hugely disappointing start to season, the Falcons snapped a three-game losing streak with a 34-29 victory over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday, the game ending on a wacky play that nearly worked.
ATLANTA (AP) — DeSean Jackson wasn't looking forward to the film review of Tampa Bay's third straight loss.
He already knew the missed scoring opportunities would be the most painful part of the Buccaneers' 34-29 loss to the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday.
Too many times, the Buccaneers (2-3) whiffed when given an opportunity to keep up with the Falcons' scoring pace.
TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — So much for struggling without Jameis Winston.
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are not only thriving in the suspended quarterback's absence, they're evolving into an offensive juggernaut that's set to perform on a national stage when the Pittsburgh Steelers visit Monday night.
Patrick Mahomes is good. 2018 David Johnson looks nothing like 2016 David Johnson. The Rams defense has not only replaced the Seahawks as the NFC's most dominant unit, but may be the best the NFL has to offer.
Week 3 will go a long way toward helping fantasy football owners decide how those clear early observations play out. Mahomes, Johnson and the Rams defense are certain starts, but the same can't be said for some others whose fate will hinge on the faith of their owners.
TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — Ryan Fitzpatrick isn't the only reason the surprising Tampa Bay Buccaneers are off to their fastest start in eight years.
Speedy receiver DeSean Jackson is making a difference, too, finally beginning to deliver what the team has been expecting since signing him in free agency before last season.
TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — Courtesy of DeSean Jackson, Ryan Fitzpatrick rocked a pair of sunglasses and a partially zipped warmup jacket revealing a couple of gold chains and a large pendant resting on his chest.
"It's nothing," the Tampa Bay quarterback said of the garb after throwing four touchdown passes and topping 400 yards for the second straight week, leading the Buccaneers to a 27-21 victory over the reigning Super Bowl champion Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday.
TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — Doug Pederson summed up a hot, frustrating day for the Philadelphia Eagles.
"A lot of self-inflicted wounds," the coach said Sunday after the reigning Super Bowl champions stumbled to a slow start in the blistering Florida sun and never fully recovered in a 27-21 loss to the surprising Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Game-time temperature was 91 degrees, with a heat index of 105.
NEW YORK (AP) — Two illegal hits cost David Onyemata more than he made for playing in New Orleans' season opener.
The Saints defensive tackle was fined $40,108 by the NFL on Friday for two roughing-the-passer calls — $20,054 for each of the penalties — in a 48-40 loss to Tampa Bay last Sunday.
With all the excitement around the NFL last weekend, it was one high-scoring Saints-Buccaneers game that brought home all the money in daily fantasy contests.
Tampa Bay quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick threw for 400-plus yards and four touchdowns, while adding another 36 yards and a score with his legs. Two of Fitzpatrick's top weapons, DeSean Jackson and Mike Evans, cracked the 100-yard threshold and accounted for three of the receiving touchdowns.
NEW ORLEANS (AP) — New Orleans Saints cornerback Marshon Lattimore sat on the turf with his hands on his knees, disconsolate as he watched Tampa Bay receiver Mike Evans coast into the end zone after beating him for a 50-yard touchdown.
It was a stark contrast to last November, when Evans caught one pass for 13 yards and received a one-game suspension after blindsiding Lattimore during a scuffle in the Saints' 30-10 victory at the Superdome.
NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Ryan Fitzpatrick backpedaled giddily for about 20 yards as he watched DeSean Jackson come down with a 36-yard touchdown pass over the middle. The journeyman quarterback then turned toward the Tampa Bay Buccaneers sideline and triumphantly thrust his arm in an upward arc.
Time will tell if the Bucs are on a similar trajectory this season, but there's no denying they're off to an encouraging start.

TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — DeSean Jackson is eager to rebound from one of the least productive seasons of his career and help the Tampa Bay Buccaneers end a long playoff drought.
The Bucs struggled a year ago to incorporate the speedy receiver into an offense expected to be more potent after the three-time Pro Bowl selection was signed to a $33.5 million contract in free agency.
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Tennessee cornerback Adoree Jackson was flipping for joy after a couple of interceptions defending Mike Evans, DeSean Jackson and the rest of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — Tampa Bay's DeSean Jackson is eager to put one of the least productive seasons of his NFL career behind him.
The speedy receiver joined teammates for the start of the Buccaneers' offseason conditioning program this week and reiterated one of his priorities is improving on-the-field chemistry between him and quarterback Jameis Winston.
ASHBURN, Va. (AP) — The Washington Redskins signed former Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Paul Richardson to a five-year deal in the hopes that he provides them the outside speed threat they lacked last season after the departure of DeSean Jackson.
Richardson had 95 catches for 1,302 yards and eight touchdowns in four seasons with the Seahawks after they drafted him in the second round in 2014. He had 44 receptions for 703 yards and six touchdowns last season.

NEW YORK (AP) — Jets cornerback Buster Skrine was fined $48,620 for his illegal hit on Tampa Bay receiver DeSean Jackson last week and Bengals linebacker Vontaze Burfict wasn't fined after his ejection against Tennessee for pushing away the arm of an official who tried to break up a sideline scuffle.
Burfict wasn't fined for his late hit out of bounds two plays earlier, either.
NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Saints rookie cornerback Marshon Lattimore caused Tampa Bay's second-ranked passing game so much frustration that several Buccaneers lost their composure.
New Orleans rookie running back Alvin Kamara stirred the Superdome into a frenzy by turning a short catch into a serpentine, tackle-escaping touchdown.
With four teams on a bye, setting your fantasy football lineup will be especially challenging in Week 5. Recent injuries and the continued use of running backs by committee are also making it hard to decide who should be in your starting lineup. We've analyzed this week's matchups and have several suggestions that could help you determine who to start in Week 5 of your Fantasy Football season.
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — With NFL owners and players around the league condemning President Donald Trump's recent remarks about national anthem protests, the Minnesota Vikings have put forth their own show of unity.
The Vikings stood along their sideline with arms locked together during the "Star Spangled Banner" on Sunday before their game against Tampa Bay. Vikings owners Zygi and Mark Wilf and general manager Rick Spielman joined players in locking arms on the field.
TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — Jameis Winston concedes it felt a little strange watching the rest of the NFL begin the season while the Tampa Bay Buccaneers were scattered around the country for an unscheduled bye imposed by Hurricane Irma.
When the young quarterback finally takes the field Sunday in the team's delayed opener, Winston will not have taken a snap in a game in three weeks.
Fantasy football defenses dominated in Week 1, while several usually dependable producers like Julio Jones and Le'Veon Bell underperformed. Setting a lineup will be challenging this week due to major injuries to early picks like David Johnson and Allen Robinson, but here are some suggestions that'll help you in Week 2.
