New England Patriots Defeat Tampa Bay Buccaneers 19-14 — INITIAL IMPRESSIONS

08 Octubre 2017, 11:56 | Cornelio Vivanco

A 19-14 loss to the New England Patriots in a Thursday Night Football matchup doesn't mean fans should storm One Buc Place with pitchforks, looking for someone to stick it to in frustration.

AT 2-2, the Bucs aren't dead, but they can't feel very good about how this played out.

The veteran kicker missed two field goals and an extra-point before beating the New York Giants on a last-second kick last week. Tampa Bay is arranging a workout for kickers next week. They kept giving Winston and the offense chance after chance to take advantage and seize control of the game, but the gift was returned just as quickly every time. Late in the first half, rookie Deatrich Wise took a roughing the passer penalty. You've got to execute. "You don't want to make any rash decisions".

"I was out to prove something", Gilmore said, via While the Patriots played mostly zone on Thursday night, Gilmore did limit the effectiveness of Evans, who had five catches for 49 yards. Winston, who entered the fourth quarter with only 109 yards passing.

Brady is still dominating, even at the age of 40, but this doesn't mean that there aren't young quarterbacks who are carving their own path, and Winston is certainly one of them.

"I just have to get on track with him and I have to play better in all respect (s)", Winston said. That's how you win. There's things that we have to do different.

New England's pass rush problems were obvious to anyone with a spare two minutes to look over the depth chart.

The Buccaneers have a good win streak at home.

Would've been our BEST BET had there been a line.

The NFL's Thursday night game for Week 5 of the 2017 season had an all-Alabama ending.

"Well, they have been playing nearly entirely man coverage, " coach Dirk Koetter said. "A lot", Winston said after the Buccaneers" 19-14 loss. Well, probably a little bit of both.

Rookie quarterback Mitchell Trubisky makes his National Football League debut Monday night against a Vikings defense that will dare him to throw. It's a continual progression.

Still, it was far from flawless overall, as evidenced by two bone-headed penalties for roughing the passer at the end of the second quarter that inexcusably gave the Buccaneers a chance at a 56-yard field goal. Folk will be a goat in this game, but only one of his attempts was really a gimmee. We've got. a long way to go. We had to talk to each other, communicate through walk-throughs and trust each other.

RB Rex Burkhead (ribs) was declared out of the Thursday night game in Tampa despite practicing all week and the end of the previous week on a limited basis. It's four games in. It's obvious I have to get him the ball.

Coming out of the locker room, the Buccaneers had no juice and went three-and-out, which New England responded to with another field goal to cap off an eight-play drive. They have a good secondary, D-line and linebackers. "Like I said, obviously, it's not enough". For the second week in a row he passed for more than 300 yards with no turnovers. Drops were an issue.

Only Doug Martin - returning after a three-game suspension - looked like a trustworthy option, rushing for 74 yards and a score.

Still, the Bucs threw for 334 yards and a touchdown. This will bode well for the Bucs moving forward. Tom Brady was hit too much. In fact, Brady has already been sacked more through five games this year (16) than he was in his 12 games last season (15). Danny Amendola and Chris Hogan were unstoppable. They have allowed 128 points and 1,827 total yards, an average of 32 points and 456.8 yards per game. That allowed Brady to stay ahead of the chains and made it hard to pressure him.

It wasn't a ideal outing for the defense and the sentiment would be different if Nick Folk made his kicks, but it was better than before and the team now has 10 days to work on doing even more against the Jets.

And the third miss... yikes. Former coach Jon Gruden, who led the Bucs to their only Super Bowl title after being acquired in a trade Glazer approved 15 years ago, will be inducted on December 18.
