  • Pats Look To Move Past Loss On Road Vs. Bucs

For more Week 5 injury news, you can check out our posts on running backs (Ty Montgomery, Ezekiel Elliott, Wendell Smallwood, and more) and non-RBs (Marcus Mariota, Sam Bradford, Davante Adams, Michael Crabtree, Jack Doyle, and more).

Big plays. New England has already produced 28 plays of 20 yards or more, including 6 of more than 40 yards. In that Giants game, Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston logged 332 yards and three touchdowns, while Jacquizz Rodgers was the top rusher on 16 carries and 83 yards. That doesn't seem to be much of a problem for most Pats opponents this season. The offense for the Patriots has kept up, scoring 32.3 per game. They have allowed 128 points and 1,827 total yards, an average of 32 points and 456.8 yards per game. That being said, this defense is absolutely playing significantly below their skill level. "Bottom line is we've got to do it better (and) we've got to practice it better, so when the opportunities come up, we hit those".

The Panthers, whose own offensive ineptitude has been evident since Week 1, found the ideal antidote to the Patriots' defense.

"As an offense, we can always do better and we've all just got to stick as one, and keep on playing football, helping each other out", he added.

The Patriots enter Thursday night's game at Tampa Bay at 2-2 and lucky not to be 1-3, with the worst-performing defense in the NFL. Brate has 10 touchdowns since the start of the 2016 season - the most by a tight end during that span - while Howard, who was Tampa Bay's first-round selection in the 2017 NFL Draft (No. 19 overall), scored his first career TD.

Germany and England qualify for World Cup
England's team for their World Cup qualifier against Slovenia has been released by Sky Sports with one surprising inclusion. The opportunity ultimately fell for Sterling just inside the Slovenia box, but Bostjan Cesar made a super block.


Given the short week, it could have been the Patriots being overly cautious with one of Tom Brady's go-to targets. It hasn't been disclosed how Gronkowski suffered the injury, but the Patriots had a walkthrough Wednesday before flying to Tampa. Sure, his numbers are awesome and he's playing at an all-time high, but the team is 2-2. All of his preparation as a youngster was done with the end goal to not only win, but to dominate like Brady. It's to score more points than the other team. But they need to prove it.

The Buccaneers pushed their record to 2-1 with a 25-23 thriller over the New York Giants. The NFL Odds for the game have the Patriots favored to pick up the win on the road. Two-time 1,000-yard rusher hasn't played in regular-season game since last December 18 at Dallas. They'll adjust. Anyone remember the panic following the 41-14 beatdown New England took in Kansas City on September 29, 2014 that left the Patriots with a similar 2-2 record?

But as we have seen in the Bill Belichick era before, the team makes adjustments after a loss.

"So just go full in getting ready for the game Thursday night and you'll be good". For the match, the Patriots are the favorites. If David Andrews and Shaq Mason can contain these two big guys, then the Patriots should win this game.
