Tom Brady throws for 303 yards in Patriots' win over the Bucs

They are now dead last in the league in pass defense, and have to try to pick up the pieces against Jameis Winston, Mike Evans and a talented Bucs passing attack on a short week.

The last time the Patriots played a road game in Tampa was in 2007 at Houlihan's Stadium. Ray Brewer won back-to-back titles in the 2015-2016 and 2016-17 seasons, after Taylor Bern prevailed in 2014-2015.

Tampa Bay could use a win to keep pace with the Panthers and Falcons in the NFC South, because the schedule gets insane for the Bucs after this game.

The Patriots would take a 13-7 lead into the half on Thursday Night Football in Week 5.

Offensively, the New England Patriots should have no problem putting points on the board.

Before we get to that game, let's examine the one against the Buccaneers. The offense didn't click until a little too late, and three missed field goals should spell the end for Folk. Nick Folk missed three field goals on Thursday night - kicks that would have been the difference in a 19-14 loss to the New England Patriots.

They were truly abhorrent in the first four weeks of the season and they're a big reason why the team started 2-2 after an offseason that had some pundits claiming an undefeated season was possible.

Here's a closer look at the Patriots' new Boeing 767-300ER AirKrafts.

Defensively, the Patriots entered the night on pace to yield more yards than any team in league history.

The Pats were particularly impressive on third downs with the first Bucs conversion coming with less than two minutes to go in the third quarter.

Brady finished 30 of 40 for 303 yards with a touchdown and interception.

Johnson, 24, originally joined the Buccaneers last offseason as an undrafted free agent out of SC. New England lost Jamie Collins (MLB) and Chandler Jones (DE) to trade, and Rob Ninkovich (DE/LB) to retirement.

Folk's struggles continued as he missed a 31-yard attempt with 5:36 remaining that would have trimmed the deficit to 16-10. The Patriots would answer with another field goal by Gostkowski from 48 yards away.

After an ugly interception on New England's first drive, Tom Brady consistently torched the Tampa Bay defense.

Now the Patriots have 10 days to rest and heal before they play the Jets, and New Englanders can concentrate their worries on the remainder of the Red Sox-Astros series.
