Going into Thursday night's game at Tampa Bay, the Patriots have a defense that can't stop anyone, that makes every quarterback look bound for the Hall of Fame, that leaves gaping holes in the line, in the secondary and in the end zone.

TAMPA host the New England Patriots, who are on the back of a disappointing defeat by the Carolina Panthers, this weekend.

The Patriots defense might be the focal point, but New England quarterback Tom Brady also has Winston's attention. When he makes good decisions and does not turn the ball over, Winston makes the Bucs tough to beat. "He transformed. I saw what it meant to him - to compete". But really, they haven't played better than 2-2. Injuries then proceeded to derail Martin over the next two seasons, as the Stockton, California native played in just 17 games combined in 2013 and 2014. There's a lot of football left and hopefully we can take all the things that have happened, learn from them and try to build on them. We've got to cover him.

Can it get better? Case Keenum of the Minnesota Vikings and Eli Manning of the Giants combined for five passing touchdowns without an interception against Tampa Bay in Weeks 2 and 3.

"I think I just got to get on track with him", Winston said. Let me know your thoughts @MitchellRenz365. So it's a big challenge for our team: "short week, travel, playing a good team". New England is also 20-8 ATS in their last 28 games overall and 40-16-3 ATS in their last 59 games in October. They are allowing just 2.9 #Yards Per Carry, which ranks as second-best in the NFL. "Teams are going to come back with a better plan".

But against a powerhouse such as the US side, that will be hard . "Once we settled in we really got things going", Fowler said. McFee is a bit of legend and well-known official at this point, so it was going to be tough arguing him out of a call.

How well might the greatest quarterback of all time perform against that defense?

BOUNCING BACK: Facing the Patriots after a loss has not been an enviable proposition for opponents during the Belichick and Brady era. New England is struggling on defense like never before and is very close to being 1-3 despite boasting Brady and the league's top-ranked offense.

While coach Ben McAdoo wouldn't say precisely how the Giants would change for Sunday's game against the Los Angeles Chargers at MetLife Stadium, but it's obvious that he is trying to take some pressure off his team and to get them to play more instinctively. "No one likes where we're at".

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers (2-1) are coming from a 25-23 win in Week 4. Tom Brady completed 32 of 45 passes for 307 yards and two touchdowns.

Tom Brady and the Patriots' passing game are as deadly as ever, ranking first in the National Football League in yards per game and second in yards per pass play. But don't be fooled, Cooks has absolutely added a big-play element to New England's offense, averaging 22.6 yards on his 13 grabs and scoring two touchdowns.
