Never one to shy away from a little trash talk, New Orleans Saints defensive end Cam Jordan told reporters after the team’s 34-23 victory over the Bucs that the empty Superdome “felt like we were at a Tampa Bay game”.
Cam Jordan on the weirdness of no fans in the Superdome: "It felt like we were at a Tampa Bay game."

Jordan was criticizing what has been lackluster attendance at Tampa Bay games for years now, something the Bucs hoped to rectify this season, until COVID-19 reared its’ ugly head.
Meanwhile, Jordan’s comments weren’t the only thing to get Bucs fans riled up on Sunday. He also appeared to throw a punch at Ronald Jones in a pile during the first half, which prompted Ryan Jensen to exchange shoves and words with the Saints’ star. Jordan is known for trying to punch the ball out aggressively, which is likely what he was attempting to do here.

It was a relatively quiet day for Jordan, who finished with four tackles and zero sacks while working mostly against Bucs rookie right tackle Tristan Wirfs.
