Tampa Bay Buccaneers have had 7 kickers since cutting Matt Bryant; working out more kickers Monday

Nick Folk might get replaced after missing a bunch of field goals. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have had a pretty bad history with kickers since they cut Matt Bryant after the 2008 season. On Thursday Night Football against the New England Patriots, Nick Folk missed three (!) field goals. Tampa lost by five points. Bucs scheduling workouts Monday for at least four kickers, per source; any moves related to potential release of Nick Folk wait until then.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) October 6, 2017 Folk, of course replaced the guy they traded up for in the second round just last...

Tom Brady has now beaten every team on the road except the Seahawks

The New England Patriots scraped by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers 19-14 to avoid an unthinkable 2-3 start to the season. Stephen Gostkowski went 4-for-4 on field goals, while Nick Folk went 0-for-3 and will most likely not be on the Buccaneers roster next week. This was Tom Brady’s first ever “true road game” against the Bucs, with the 2009 matchup taking place in London, England. With the victory on Thursday night, Brady has now beaten 30 teams on the road — at their actual stadium, to be more specific — in addition to tying Peyton Manning and Brett Favre for most regular season wins...

Andrew Franks expected to get workout from Buccaneers

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers did everything they could on Thursday night to beat the New England Patriots, ultimately losing the game 19-14. Well, not everything they could do - because they could not convert a field goal. Or another field goal. Or another. Kicker Nick Folk missed all three attempts at three points during the game - and badly missed them. Now, it appears, the Buccaneers, who changed to Folk in training camp after releasing 2016 second-round draft pick Robert Aguayo, are considering another kicker change. According to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport, Tampa Bay is expected to work...

TAMPA, Fla. — Tom Brady threw for 303 yards and one touchdown, and New England’s porous defense showed signs of improvement Thursday night in a 19-14 victory over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Watch the Buccaneers find a pass rush against the Patriots

Three sacks and a forced fumble so far. Hey, remember when the Tampa Bay Buccaneers couldn’t rush the passer? Turns out they just need to face Tom Brady to get going. The Bucs have three sacks in this game so far, including this one where Adarius Glanton and Noah Spence decide to have a little tea party on top of Brady. BALL! #NEvsTB pic.twitter.com/jwZ5OS7bxV— SNF on NBC (@SNFonNBC) October 6, 2017 The blitz is perfectly timed, which is not something we’ve seen much of out of the Bucs this season. Their blitzes have been few, far between, and no good. So that’s good. Also...

Can you feel the color rush excitement? Thursday Night Football features the 2-2 New England Patriots traveling to play the 2-1 Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Did you know that Tampa is the only city that New England’s Bill Belichick has never won a game as a head coach? The Pats are coming off a loss, and questions are swirling about their defense not being good enough to be a Super Bowl team. Their defensive coordinator, Matt Patricia, is a popular name for teams seeking a head coach in 2018. Chicago Bears’ fans, pay close attention to Pats’ corner corner Stephon Gilmore, who the Bears...

New England Patriots at Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Thursday Night Football Live Blog

The Green Bay Packers are in a dogfight in the NFC North with two other rivals, but the Chicago Bears are the one bringing up the rear. How the mighty have fallen. The defending Super Bowl champion New England Patriots have the worst defense in the NFL, ranked 31st against the run (5.1 YPC) and 32nd against the pass (9.4 YPP). Delicious. Meanwhile, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers have Jamies Winston who has his team in the Top 10 in passing efficiency. It’s gotten so bad that even those cocky, arrogant Patriots fans have lost all faith in their defense. Most feel that they’ll continue to be...

Hey, a Thursday night game that’s very compelling on paper! Could you imagine the Patriots being 2-3 after five games? I’m not banking on it, but they have the worst defense in the NFL, and the Buccaneers have all sorts of talent on offense. This should be a fun one.

Join us for the Pats and Buccaneers on Thursday Night Football.

The Buccaneers are coming off of an impressive performance against the Giants last Sunday. They will look to continue that success with Jameis Winston throwing the ball to the likes of Mike Evans, Desean Jackson, and O.J Howard.

NFL Week 5 2017, Thursday Night Football: Patriots vs Buccaneers

Yo ho, they could blow the Pats out. Tonight, the Patriots take on the Buccaneers at 8:25 p.m. ET in Tampa, Florida at Raymond James Stadium. The forecast calls for another Patriots loss as their defense has been awful. I mean historically awful. As good as their offense is, they still struggle to score enough points, while the Buccaneers offense has been pretty good so far. Can the Patriots defense do enough to hold them off or will their be another disappointing game to add into the loss column? Tom Brady and Bill Belichick can’t be happy, but they’ll be even more upset if Jameis...

Buccaneers vs. Patriots Week 5 Thursday Night Football key info and open thread

This is one of those games where it’s difficult to decide who you want to win, because both teams are so loathsome. On one hand, you have NFC South rival Buccaneers, a wannabe-2012 Falcons squad stocked with former Atlanta players and coaches but without the charm and winning. On the other hand, you have the Patriots dynasty, a team led by strawberry-hating robot and nutritional scam artist Tom Brady that is responsible for both the oversized egos of Patriots fans and the Falcons’ Super Bowl loss in February. Can both teams lose, please? Setting aside my disdain for them, though, this...
