In a game where the Tampa Bay Buccaneers had more penalty yards in the first half (85) than Josh Freeman had passing yards (33), the Buccaneers were destined for trouble.
Tampa Bay's offensive line looked uninterested in protecting their quarterback, LeGarrette Blount failed to find any running lanes and the defense looked ill-prepared and flustered by the Patriots from start to finish.
All in all, it was a tough game for Tampa fans to watch. This Buccaneer team looked nothing like the team that dismantled the Kansas City Chiefs 25-0 a week ago.
It was slim pickins trying to find Buccaneers that stood out against the Patriots. In fact, it would have been a lot easier to name players that disappointed rather then those that performed well.
At the end of the day though, Buccaneer fans must stay positive. This was only game two of the preseason, adjustments will be made and the Bucs will get back on track.
