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."

Coming off a sensational rookie season, Spieth opened the new year by never coming close to bogey and making a 12-foot birdie putt on the last hole for a 7-under 66.MINNEAPOLIS - Its been a slog at times for Arron Afflalo in his second tour with the Denver Nuggets as he tries to re-acclimate himself to a team in flux.Little by little, its all coming back to him. Just ask the Minnesota Timberwolves.Afflalo scored 34 points and the Nuggets handed the Timberwolves their 12th straight loss with a 110-101 victory on Monday night.J.J. Hickson had 16 points and 11 rebounds and the Nuggets shot 55 per cent to cruise past the Timberwolves. Jusuf Nurkic scored 14 points and Ty Lawson added 12 assists for the Nuggets, whose reserves outscored Minnesotas 47-10.If the Nuggets (15-20) are going to turn things around after a terrible start, Afflalo will likely be a catalyst. Hes averaged 25.3 points on 61 per cent shooting over the last three games.When you go through struggles, which I was going through, I really tried to find myself and find what makes me a better player, a more effective player, Afflalo said. I think Im starting to notice it over the last two or three games, how to be efficient and effective.Gorgui Dieng tied a career high with 22 points and grabbed 12 rebounds and Shabazz Muhammad added 19 points and six boards for the Wolves (5-28), who are now tied with Philadelphia and New York for fewest wins in the league. The Timberwolves shot just 43 per cent and have not won since Dec. 10 while playing without Ricky Rubio, Nikola Pekovic and Kevin Martin.Weve just got to dig through these dog days, said Wolves assistant Sam Mitchell, who filled in when Flip Saunders couldnt make it to the arena because of an illness.Nuggets coach Brian Shaw recently switched up the teams game-day schedule, eliminating the time-honoured morning shootaround in favour of a light workout later in the afternoon. Shaw believes starting later in the day gives his players more continuous sleep and has them operating when their bodies are used to exerting their most effort.The approach was successful on Saturday when the Nuggets thumped the Grizzliies 114-85 and Shaw said before the game on Monday the plan was to employ it the rest of the season to get a large sample size and make a determination going forward about the long-term future.ddddddddddddThe Nuggets looked energetic and well-rested again Monday night, though playing against the woeful Timberwolves might have had something to do with it. They outscored the Wolves 19-10 in transition and 56-38 in the paint.The Wolves allowed the Nuggets to shoot 61 per cent in the first half. They turned the ball over eight times and were outscored 13-3 in transition and trailed by 24 points midway through the second quarter.The veteran Afflalo took it to No. 1 draft pick Andrew Wiggins, making him work for his 20 points on 8-for-18 shooting while Afflalo was 11 for 18 — including 4 of 6 on 3-pointers.I think I couldve done better, a lot better, Wiggins said. I dont think it was one of my best defensive performances.TIP-INSNuggets: Nate Robinson, who was questionable with a sprained right wrist, scored 12 points in 21 minutes. ...

Hes won the award in each of the first two months of the season. ... F Chase Budinger missed his second straight game because he was sick and F Robbie Hummel was also out with the same bug.LINEUP SHUFFLEThe Timberwolves tried to change things up by putting veteran Mo Williams in the starting lineup at point guard and moving rookie Zach LaVine to the bench. But it was just more of the same for a struggling group that cant defend, cant hit a 3-point shot consistently and cant stay healthy.Williams scored 17 points in 25 minutes. LaVine managed just five on 2-for-9 shooting in 26 minutes.UP NEXTNuggets: Host Orlando on Wednesday.Timberwolves: Host Phoenix on Wednesday.
