The Tampa Bay Buccaneers' defense shut down the New Orleans Saints offense in the Divisional Round, limiting the team to just 20 points. It was a dominant performance from this defense, generating 3 ugly interceptions on Drew Brees while also forcing a fumble on tight end Jared Cook.

But the most impressive thing this unit did was hold superstar wide receiver Michael Thomas without a catch. And Bucs' corner Carlton Davis let Thomas hear about it on Twitter after the game.

This is an expert-level dig. Getting called "slant boy" was allegedly what caused Thomas to get into the fight with a teammate at practice that ultimately led to his suspension earlier this season.

It's also a comment on how Thomas and this Saints' offense don't do anything over the top, preferring to take the shorter, easier check downs.

With a matchup against superstar wideout Davante Adams on tap for next weekend, the Bucs will likely need another shutdown performance from Davis and this secondary.
