The Patriots coming off a home loss, their 2nd of the season, to the Carolina Panthers when Panthers kicker Graham Gano hit a field goal with no time on the clock. The Patriots QB Tom Brady threw for 307 yards and 2 TDs but was hit 7 times and sacked 3. TE Rob Gronkowski has 4 receptions for 80 yards as the leading receiver in Week 4 and Mike Gillislee rushed for 49 yards in 12 rushes. The Patriots total rushing yards in the game was 80. The Patriots defense isn’t communicating very well. They’re not successful in rushing the passer and the secondary looks lost at times. The offense is not protecting Brady, so he is pressured to throw the ball and the accuracy is not there. Brady orchestrated two 4th quarter touchdowns but the defense couldn’t stop the panthers and Gillmore added two costly penalties that kept the Panthers drive alive.
Head to head league rankings have the Patriots #1 for offense and the Buccaneers 9th. The defenses ranked 32nd and 30th for New England and Tampa Bay respectively. The Patriots are 1st in passing and the Buccaneers are 3rd. The Vegas odds makers have installed the Patriots as a spread favorite at -5 (-105).
Tampa Bay comes into this NFL picks matchup with a win over the New york Giants. QB Jaimeson Winston has 332 passing yards and 3 TDs and rushed for 12 yards. Brate, Humphries, Evans and Howard saw most of the receiving yards and Brate was the leading rusher at 83 yards total.
Can the Patriots offensive line protect Brady from the Buccaneer’s defense? Can the defense stop the Buccaneers from moving the ball and scoring? Brady cannot win the game by himself even with his talent.
