Slides: What to Watch For: Patriots vs Buccaneers

The Patriots have a new plane

If anyone was expecting the Patriots to sprint out of their doldrums, it didn't happen. The New England Patriots will try to get their season back on track against a much-hyped Tampa Bay side.

Nineteen thoughts on the Patriots' 19-14 victory over the Buccaneers on Thursday. They can play any personnel group, they can change from week-to-week, they can be in even-front one week, an odd-front next week, they will play dime the whole game. Its ironic but they could have done better than what they had tonight.

Franks was with the Miami Dolphins for the last two seasons, making 29 kicks in 37 attempts.

On a night when the offense gained 402 yards but only got in the end zone once, Brady lauded the defense, which slowed the Bucs down just enough to get the victory. But to be fair, the problems were not exclusively defensive. They will switch at halftime and they've always been a very hard team to plan for.

There were a few defensive penalties that kept drives going and almost led to the team shooting themselves in the foot once again.

Other than that things were really improved.

It's been well-proven in past years that the best way to bother Tom Brady is to provide pressure against him right up the middle. They have won six games.

The Tampa Bay Bucs reveled in the Summer of Love in front of the HBO cameras. In terms of effectiveness against the Patriots, here's how I'd rate the five quarterbacks they have faced so far, least to most impressive: 5.

The Patriots held the third-year pro to 109 yards passing through three quarters. But Brate did score just before the 2-minute warning on a similar play.

However, Tampa Bay could not capitalize as they also punted once and missed a 49 and 31-yard field goal. But considering you can have a free trial period for Amazon Prime, you should check out the crystal clear picture you get without looking elsewhere. Ragged performances, subpar football and bad games. He has great size to catch balls above his defenders, good speed to get open, good route running, excellent hands and is a great blocker. They probably win, but it will be a close one, so give the points. The latest three matches have been consecutive wins. [Supports AccuScore sim data.] Tampa Bay is 1-4 ATS in its last 5 games. Like the buccaneers of old, not the Buccaneers of Koetter.

Nick Folk missed all three of his field goals attempts last night in the Bucs' 19-14 loss to the Patriots, and he missed them badly. It's also losing football. "You couldn't ask for a better moment for my first game".
