The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are hosting the Patriots. The week 5 of the NFL regular season kicks off in Tampa. For the match, the Patriots are the favorites.
The New England Patriots are the defending Super Bowl champions. However, this time, chances look bleak for a champion team. For starters, the Patriots are giving 32 points per game this season. They rank among the world NFL defenses in the 2017-18 season.
At the same time, to make things worse, the Patriots are no longer the favorites to win the Super Bowl. Things are surely looking downhill for the team.
They are up against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, which is a solid team with a good offense.
Nevertheless, the Patriots also have a good scoring talent. They average out at a respectable 32.3. Quarterback Tom Brady with 1,399 yards and 10 touchdowns leads NFL. New England also has a 6-2 all-time winning record against the Buccaneers. The latest three matches have been consecutive wins. To further compliment the team, New England has a 9-win streak on road.
The Buccaneers have a good win streak at home. They have won six games. And that too, consecutively. The Buccaneer offense is particularly strong, and all those who follow NFL know it.
Wide receiver Mike Evans and quarterback Jameis Winston are both at really great performance streaks. They will make it easy for the entire team to breach into the weak New England defense.
The Buccaneers are among the top points-per-game scorers in the NFL, and good in beating defenses. Further, the Tampa Bay team has won the last six home games. This is surely a streak worth remembering when the match goes down against New England.
