Rising total of hits on Tom Brady a growing concern for Patriots

Rising total of hits on Tom Brady a growing concern for Patriots”

Both offenses couldn't get anything going all game. Instead, Tom Brady had 2 turnovers with his first interception of the year and a fumble late in the game. Most expect them to be contenders by season's end, so it is fortunate for the Bucs to be playing them early in the season. Tampa Bay have allowed 394 yards per game on average. However there were several takeaways from this game that much is certain. The Patriots head into the match as the overwhelming favourites but we feel the two teams should be a lot closer in the market.

"His ability to protect the football and take advantage of those opportunities when they are given to him is impeccable", he told reporters.

As the National Football League enters the second quarter of the season, the bye weeks begin with the Redskins, Falcons, Broncos and Saints off. He was sacked at least 2 times tonight (Nate Solder was obviously not healthy to start at Left Tackle tonight). After Winston completed a short pass to DeSean Jackson, the receiver was able to go up the field and turn it into a 48-yard gain.

"As far as what happened I think it was a disgusting tragedy", said Buccaneers fan Kerrie Stallard. Still, "Gronk" could see a few less snaps tonight, which is always a good thing for opponents.

When the Pats scored, it seemed to spark the Buccaneers offense a bit. He missed three more field goals Thursday night, including a 31-yarder in the fourth quarter that would have cut a nine-point deficit to six with just under six minutes to go.

In Sunday's loss against the Carolina Panthers, the Patriots often alternated between man and zone coverages, which led to significant breakdowns in communication within the secondary. The pass rush was barely there, but they still kept the receivers covered.

The victory was good to get, but the Patriots played a pretty sloppy game at times.

There were a few defensive penalties that kept drives going and almost led to the team shooting themselves in the foot once again. An NFL team is typically only as good as its starting QB, so with that in mind, how numerous career leaders in wins for NFL quarterbacks can you name in six minutes? "Two seconds, got to give him a chance".

Going into the fourth quarter, Tampa Bay was just one-of-13 on third down, with their first conversion coming in the third quarter.

"They may not have the elite pass rusher they have had in similar seasons, but they still have a heck of a defense and they are well-coached".

At the end of the day, it's all about winning. The Patriots won by five.

The offensive line has taken their fair share of criticism in Tampa Bay, but they got the job done against the defending Super Bowl champs, giving Winston more than enough time to make plays down the field.
