New England Patriots Defeat Tampa Bay Buccaneers 19-14 — INITIAL IMPRESSIONS

07 October 2017

The rest of the quarter resulted in three punts by Tampa Bay and one by New England.

For now, the Patriots can begin preparing for a Week 6 game against the New York Jets, which is also an important contest in the East. Unfortunately, it was the offense's night to be off and that is why they scraped by the Bucs by just five points.

"Well, they have been playing nearly entirely man coverage, " coach Dirk Koetter said. Because of that, Brady has held on to the ball longer at times to allow those routes to develop, which can also allow pressure to get home. What's tough about them is they're an amoeba defense. They've always been able to adjust.

Here are ten reasons why they are in fact the greatest team.

After eight years in the majors, Sale said that finally getting a chance to pitch in the postseason is "pretty fulfilling". Coincidence of the night: The past two three-homer games in postseason came in games started by Justin Verlander .

Will the Buccaneers make it two straight NFC South teams to defeat Bill Belichick, Tom Brady and the Pats? On the flip side, they have the NFL's top offense. "He's one of our best and most dependable players". When the play is there, you have to execute the play.

"I think Nick was kicking very well up until a week ago. Like I said, obviously, it's not enough".

Defensive captain Dont'a Hightower said while there were plenty of issues to clean up during the short week, "The time is now".

"The big plays and all that stuff, obviously, it's easy for guys to see that", Hightower said. Don't take things for granted, you know? The Bucs even got a strong performance from Doug Martin in his first game back from a three-game suspension.

Anything besides 3 points on Thursday as well as the hosts will, at best, be condemned to a play-off place. In comparison, Brazil have won 11 of their games, racking up a whopping 38 goals in the process.

Winston didn't get much help.

Here are five teams that have to come away with a win in Week 5. In a young Winston's eyes, Brady separated himself from the pack. As Tony Romo said, "You have to go for it there". "I missed him on a shot that could have been a touchdown". Brady has thrown for more than 300 yards in six of his past seven games, and he's now tied with Peyton Manning and Brett Favre for the most regular-season wins as a quarterback in National Football League history (186). Winston then put his team in a position to capitalize with a 50-yard field goal attempt - but Folk missed again. He owns a 116.6 QB rating with 10 touchdowns passes and a 9.0 yards-per-attempt average.

These are some questions that could be at least partly answered on Thursday Night Football, as Tom Brady and company travel to Florida to take on Jameis Winston and the Buccaneers. "He has been open. Two seconds, got to give him a chance". He's going to make this team better. "In that respect, maybe it's better that we do play them on a Thursday night". "He's more happy winning than anything else".

Winston completed 26 of 46 passes for 334 yards with one touchdown and no interceptions in Thursday's 19-14 loss to the Patriots.
