Total Points For
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have averaged over 50 points per contest this season. Even last week where their offense struggled and they ultimately lost the game, the Buccaneers and Rams combined for 58 total points in the game.
Tom Brady will get creative with his offense in this one. He knows that Bill Belicheck will try and give him looks he has never seen before but look out for Tom Brady to improve that offensive production.
The Bucs are coming off of a loss. Tom Brady doesn’t like to lose games and he will definitely want to win this one in New England on Sunday. If Brady has any say in it, the points will be plentiful in this matchup on Sunday night.
Tom Brady Touchdowns
In Week one Brady scored four touchdowns, in Week two Brady scored five touchdowns. Unfortunately in Week three he only managed one touchdown through the air.
If history has told us anything, any time Brady struggles through a matchup or has a rough outing, the next game he comes ready to go and dialed into the task at hand.
With the number being 2.5 touchdowns, look for Brady to make his mark known in this contest and surpass the 2.5 touchdown mark on Sunday against the Patriots.
Brady Passing Attempts
Number 12 is averaging 47 passing attempts per game so far this season. His lowest number being 36 attempts in Week two. The other two weeks, Brady throw for 50 and 55 attempts in those contests.
If it was going to be a cold night in New England, the best bet would be to take the under as Brady isn’t shy about using his running backs during bad weather games. However, the forecast for Sunday night is 73 degrees and clear.
This is a solid pick since the number is 39.5 passing attempts. I don’t see this game being a blowout right away so the Bucs will look for Brady to use his skills and passing to separate them from the Patriots.
Head Coach, Bruce Arians will definitely game plan for Brady to pass the ball against the Patriots. Brady knows that this matchup is just another game, but also he sure would like to be a huge impact for the Bucs as they go for the win against his former team.
