(WVUE) -

All three units (offense, defense, special teams) contributed to the Saints domination of the Bucs, 30-10, giving the Black and Gold a six-game winning streak. The Saints (6-2) still sit on top of the NFC South standings after their convincing win today.

Justin Hardee blocked a punt, and returned it for a 7-yard score giving the Saints a 9-0 advantage. Wil Lutz's extra point would be blocked after the Saints touchdown.

Right before half, Kamara broke a few tackles off a screen pass from Drew Brees, taking it in for a score from 33 yards out. The Who-Dats topped the Bucs 16-3 at the break.

Kamara would get back back into the end zone in the third quarter, easily running up the middle for a 6-yard touchdown. His second score gave the Black and Gold a 23-3 lead. Kamara finished the afternoon with 152yards of total offense.

The rookie out of Tennessee only had one mistake on the day, a lost fumble killed a drive in the second quarter. Last week, Mark Ingram lost two fumbles against the Bears.

Safety Vonn Bell forced a fumble that was recovered by Chris Banjo. A few plays later, Brees found Ted Ginn, Jr. for a 36-yard score. The touchdown connection staked the Saints to a 30-3 edge.

Brees continues to post stellar numbers this season, his latest output, 22-of-27 passing for 263 yards and two touchdowns.
