"They will switch at halftime and they've always been a very hard team to plan for".
It took four consecutive wins for the Patriots to gain its respect back, getting in the top three.
Thursday night games were scheduled regularly as of the 2012 season. We've had enough time and we need to be better at executing what we're doing and making sure that we have more guys doing their jobs than what we've had, and that's how we can get things corrected on offense. "It's either get the job done or we'll find somebody that can". We go in as one and we come out as a team. In other words, don't expect much of a Patriots ground attack.
Brady said that sometimes, especially early in a season, some parts of the team are functioning better than others. Don't take things for granted, you know?
The Bucs feel pretty good about their offense and the way quarterback Jameis Winston played last week.
"I don't really see it like that", he said.
Frank Gore gets back at his former team? "They have a great coach, a great quarterback, a great defense".
Martin Fennelly, @mjfennelly: New England's defense looks terrible, with little pass rush and gaping holes in coverage. In a young Winston's eyes, Brady separated himself from the pack.
"There's always urgency here", Brady said. I'm just going to go out there and play to the best of my ability. In that most recent Carolina game, Patriots QB Tom Brady went 32-of-45 for 307 yards and two touchdowns, while Mike Gillislee posted 12 carries and 49 yards to lead the rush. With 185 regular-season wins as starting quarterback, Brady is one shy of tying Brett Favre and Peyton Manning for most regular-season wins by quarterback in National Football League history. Then in the back of your head you've got some rest over the weekend.
The Patriots are coming off a 33-30 loss to the Carolina Panthers last week, while the Bucs are coming off a 25-23 win over the New York Giants.
In three games, they have intercepted two passes, recovered two fumbles, and only sacked the quarterback once. "He has been open".
Danny Amendola: I like him a lot this week. He's going to make this team better. The third quarter, however, was brutal as the Pats ran just 11 offensive plays and punted on both drives. "He's more happy winning than anything else". And without Lavonte David or Kwon Alexander in the lineup, Brady should pick apart the Bucs defense underneath crossing routes to Gronkowski and Amendola.
He had not been listed on the injury report Monday or Tuesday. If that's the case, rookie Kendell Beckwith again will start at middle linebacker and call the defensive signals.
Martin served three games of his four game National Football League suspension to begin the season. New England's offense is just that good.
