The Tampa Bay Buccaneers once again lit up the scoreboard like a pinball machine in their 48-25 week two victory over the division-rival Atlanta Falcons. In doing so, the Buccaneers offense made NFL history, and re-wrote the record book.
The Bucs have a loaded roster. That isn’t news. Sure, they aren’t perfect, and certainly have some slight causes for concern going forward. The fact of the matter is though, this team, and offense in particular, has broken a record that is quite impressive, yet has flown under the radar to some degree.
In their second victory of the season, with some help from Mike Edwards, Tom Brady and company have now won nine straight games scoring a minimum of 30 points. People need to stop and realize how impressive that is.
The team’s defense got a lot of attention after Super Bowl LV for what they did to Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs, and rightfully so, but this offense has been just as impressive, if not more so. Speaking of Mahomes, he and the Chiefs offense immediately come to mind when the common NFL fan thinks of explosive offenses, but they haven’t come close to doing what the Buccaneers have done, even if some of the talking heads want to say otherwise, homer or otherwise.
Brady and the Bucs winning their ninth straight scoring 30+ points broke the previous record of eight such victories held by both the 2007 and 2010-11 New England Patriots, of course quarterbacked by Brady.
As you can clearly see, there’s a common denominator here, and that’s Brady.
Young stud quarterbacks and high-powered offenses come and go, but the GOAT, Tom Brady still remains. If last year’s Super Bowl didn’t already prove that to any doubters, then this record-breaking performance by the Buccaneers should have even the biggest naysayers convinced.
