Tampa Bay activates Doug Martin from suspension on Monday

The Patriots and Buccaneers will meet in a regular season game for the first time since the 2013 season when New England beat Tampa Bay at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Massachusetts. As a matter of fact, New England stands right now as the highest scoring team in the league with 424 yards per game. Tampa Bay is one of seven teams Tom Brady (3-0) is undefeated against. "I just want to go out there and play hard and do what I know I can do".

The third-year pro often speaks of having aspirations to someday be recognized as the best to ever play his position.

Sunday's win against the Giants was a huge one for Bucs quarterback Jameis Winston, who threw for 332 yards and three touchdowns without any interceptions.

Said Patriots safety Duron Harmon: "Obviously, what we're doing is not good enough".

"That is the reason why every offseason, every rep I get during the season". "We've got to coach better".

But for now, he's still the young blood going against the old guard.

Winston won the Heisman Trophy and a national championship in college at Florida State.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are 2-1 on the season.

He's also the first player in National Football League history to pass for at least 1,000 yards with 10 touchdowns and no interceptions through his team's first four games twice in his career, having accomplished the feat in 2015 as well.

"He's a great big-play threat".

"I'm very grateful (with) everything that has gone on and it feels good that they're sticking by my side", Martin said.

Tom Brady is going to have an all-time great Tom Brady game.

"We had already done some previous work on the Patriots game plan, but we had some things we needed to touch up", Koetter said. "That's what we're going to try to do this week". Belief in the Tampa Bay defense could pay off handsomely; you'll get +130 odds on the under if you shave four points off the overall total of 56, and +375/+315 for New England finishing with two or three touchdowns, respectively. Essentially, they could just be combining their two uniforms.

How well might the greatest quarterback of all time perform against that defense? That doesn't make a whole lot of sense, given that the Buccaneers are a better team than the Saints and it's now clear how bad the Patriots' defense is. In their two losses, New England allowed 37.5 points per game. However, under Brady, the Pats are 49-12 following a loss.

"There's always urgency here", Brady said. No one likes where we're at but we're the only people who can do something about it. He's the only player with three-straight games of 11-plus targets this season.

Excellent question. The Patriots have given up at least 30 points in three of their first four games this season, including the last two against Houston and Carolina on their home field. He knows his defense is struggling and that he'll likely need to put up a ton of points for a win.

The general consensus in the locker room is that part of the problem has been communication. New England was thumped at home by the Carolina Panthers last week.
