TAMPA, Fla. -- Winning in dramatic fashion never gets old for Drew Brees. The New Orleans star was sacked four times, knocked around a bunch more and threw an interception that was returned for a touchdown Sunday. Still, he and the Saints found a way to beat the Tampa Bay Buccaneers again. "Thats football. Thats why we love it, and thats why we never give up, because we always feel like we have a chance," Brees said Sunday after leading a last-minute drive to set up Garrett Hartleys 27-yard as time expired to give New Orleans a weather-delayed 16-14 victory. Brees shrugged off the mistake that gave Tampa Bay the lead early in the fourth quarter to complete three straight passes for 54 yards to lead the Saints (2-0) into position to beat their NFC South rivals for the fourth straight time. He finished 26 of 46 for 322 yards, although interceptions by linebackers Dekoda Watson and Mason Foster led to all of Tampa Bays points. "I think wins like this are vital because no matter what youve done in the past, youve got to kind of prove it to yourself that this team can do that and overcome those types of odds and circumstances and get a win -- on the road, in the division," Brees said. "These just become so meaningful, and our team got better today." The game was interrupted by a 69-minute suspension of play because of lightning that sent fans at Raymond James Stadium scurrying for cover in the first quarter. The Bucs (0-2) lost on a field goal in the closing seconds for the second straight week. Foster scored on an 85-yard interception return for a 14-13 lead. However, Rian Lindell missed a 46-yard field-goal attempt just over a minute left, giving Brees one more chance to bring the Saints back. "Its tough to lose no matter (how)," Foster said. "Youve got to tip your hat to Drew Brees and his receivers making great plays. Hes a great quarterback. Hes proven that over the years." Brees led his team into scoring position with completions of 15 yards to Jimmy Graham, 8 yards to Darren Sproles and 31 yards to Marques Colston. It was the 22nd time during the regular season Brees has led a winning drive in the fourth quarter or overtime since joining the Saints in 2006. "The fact of the matter is weve worked so hard. Weve conditioned ourselves to be prepared for these opportunities, and you just visualize success," said Brees, who threw a first-quarter TD pass to Graham, who had 10 catches for 179 yards. "You visualize yourself making plays, so really I can say there was no doubt among our team." The Bucs played resilient defence to stay in the game, but in the end werent able to generate enough offence. Tampa Bay was penalized 13 times for 102 yards during a season-opening 18-17 loss to the New York Jets, including three costly personal fouls -- the last of which set up the Jets game-winning field goal in the closing seconds. They had three more penalties for hard hits in the second quarter Sunday. Defensive end Adrian Clayborn was assessed an unnecessary roughness penalty for a hard hit on Brees, safety Dashon Goldson was flagged for a blow to the head on Sproles two plays later, and safety Ahmad Black later was called for what appeared to be a helmet-to-helmet hit on Graham on an incompletion down the middle off the field. The game was stopped with 10:30 remaining in the first quarter. When play resumed, Brees first pass was intercepted by Watson at the Saints 35 to set up Josh Freemans 5-yard TD pass to Kevin Ogletree to put the Bucs up 7-3. Freeman completed nine of 22 passes for 125 yards. Doug Martin rushed for 144 yards on 29 carries for Tampa Bay. The Bucs say they are disappointed, though far from discouraged, to be 0-2. "This team is a resilient team," coach Greg Schiano said. "The head coach is a resilient guy." Notes: Tampa Bay finished with 10 penalties for 118 yards, including one for an illegal formation that wiped out a 73-yard TD pass to Vincent Jackson. ... Brees has thrown for 300-plus yards in seven consecutive games, two off his NFL record. ...

The Gers sealed their place in Scottish footballs top tier with a 1-0 win over Dumbarton on Tuesday, and some of the focus has already switched to how Mark Warburtons side will fare next season.Stoke midfielder Adam, who spent six years in the Rangers first team between 2003 and 2009, sees no reason why his former club cannot be up with the sides at the top of the Premiership. Of course they are [able to challenge for the title]. They had 49,000 fans there against Dumbarton on a Wednesday night, and theyve had that support since they were in the Third Division week in, week out, Adam told Sky Sports Now.The fans have made a massive impact, the players and owners have come in and stabilised the club and they look like they are building for the future.I think the signings that Mark has made showed the intent that they were going to try and get promoted, but the players are good enough to keep them in the Premiership. Charlie Adam spent six years at Rangers Theyll go there next season and want to try aand win it - they will spend again as well and improve the squad, and Celtic will have to be wary of that.ddddddddddddBefore attention can turn to Rangers Premiership campaign, Warburtons side will attempt to win the Petrofac Training Cup on Sunday, followed by the Scottish Cup semi-final against Celtic a week later. Adam told Sky Sports Now that he believes the encounter with Celtic will be a real sign of how far Rangers have come under Warburton.Well see on April 17 - in the past there was a massive gap, but I think Rangers have improved, he added. Mark Warburton has led Rangers to promotion in his first year in charge Celtic are dwindling at the top, theyve taken their foot off the gas and Aberdeen have pushed them all the way, but they will still win the league.Id like to see Rangers push them and hopefully get the win, and to try and win the treble in one season would be incredible.
