Slides: What to Watch For: Patriots vs Buccaneers

And since the Patriots' defense is definitely struggling right now, the Bucs' offense should be able to capitalize on their mishaps and take full advantage of the opportunity to notch a win.

The 28-year-old played in eight games last season, rushing for 421 yards and three touchdowns.

The New England Patriots (2-2) suffered a rough loss at home on Sunday for the second time this season, but at least they get a short week to turn the page and move on to the next game. Take the New England Patriots, who not only own a nine-game road winning streak, they're 8-1 against the spread over that span. The Bucs' pass defense allows the second-most yards at 315.7, so expect Tom Brady (NFL-high 1,399 yards with 10 TDs and no INTs) to do his thing, too, as this game easily goes over.

Tandy (hip) is listed as doubtful for Thursday's game against the Patriots, Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times reports. In the aftermath of Sunday's 33-30 home loss to Carolina, the defensive backs continually spoke about miscommunication, resulting in wide-open receivers across the field. The Patriots have dropped back-to-back games only six times during that span: in 2006, 2009, 2011, 2012 and twice in 2015. In recent weeks, New England's opposing passers (Deshaun Watson/Cam Newton) put up big numbers to their top targets (DeAndre Hopkins/Kelvin Benjamin). It has surrendered only 3.3 points per contest in its last three while scoring an average of 28.7 points a game.

This game looks like a good spot for a reversal of fortunes play.

With a win over Tampa Bay on Thursday, Brady - who now has 185 career regular-season victories as a starting QB - would tie Hall of Famer Brett Favre and Peyton Manning for the most in National Football League history (186).

"I feel like I handled it pretty good", said Evans, who had three tackles in the Bucs' win.

"Collectively, we've got to do a lot better", Belichick said.

"It's my job to get him off his mark, make him uncomfortable", said McCoy. "You're telling me you're taking away from my ability to recover and be healthy for a normal week and you're taking three days away from it". On the other side of the ball, Dak Prescott is starting to make more errors, having been asked to do more on offense than past year when he was more of a game-manager.

Can the Patriots stop him and, more specifically, Winston? "We want to make sure we let them know we're a competitive team". Some of that maybe a function of trailing more than usual, but Brandin Cooks has definitely provided a deep threat New England has lacked since Randy Moss.
