The Patriots defeat the Buccaneers in convincing fashion in a game that never really appeared to even be in question after the first quarter. Injuries to Buccaneer receivers Mike Williams and Vincent Jackson during the third quarter nixed any hope of a comeback. Tampa failed to convert numerous opportunities in the first half, and New England slowly and steadily kept adding points to their side of the scoreboard. A disappointing performance and outcome as the Bucs fall to the Pats 23 - 3.
