Analysis from the win for the Buccaneers

Buccaneers fans will complain because the offense struggled in the second half, but you have to give some credit to the team for continuing to progress.

The Tampa Bay defense has been absolutely dominating through the first three games of the season and that continued to be the case Sunday evening when they registered six sacks and forced two turnovers.

While the offense still has work to do, it was nice to see Brady have a day where he passed for nearly 300 yards and he refrained from turning the ball over, which is the biggest factor moving forward.

There’s no doubt this team still has plenty to develop, but there’s no doubt this was a dominating victory. The outcome of the game was never in doubt and that is a credit to the way this Buccaneers team handled itself on the road.
