Tom Brady leads New England Patriots to important Thursday night win

Thursday night the New England Patriots took on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

After a punt by the Bucs, New England had a relatively short field and was able to kick another field goal with under a minute left in the first half.

Jackson finished with five catches for 106 yards on nine targets Thursday, including a 41-yarder.

"I know coach talked ... about their organization and what they're trying to do, and Jameis is right at the head of that", Brady added. "I missed him on a shot that could have been a touchdown. It's not real hard when you get down to it". When the play is there, you have to execute the play.

"That is the reason why every offseason, every rep I get during the season", the young quarterback continued.

But for a team that came into Week 5 ranked 31st in scoring defense (32 points allowed per game), there was one number that stood out above all others.

The third-year pro often speaks of having aspirations to someday be recognized as the best to ever play his position. Brady had 30 completions for 40 passing attempts tonight, with 303 yards, a TD and INT. The Patriots' first-quarter, 89-yard drive, which ended with a 27-yard field goal by Stephen Gostkowski, should have been an indicator of what type of game this was going to be.

Still, the Bucs threw for 334 yards and a touchdown. Remember: Oddsmakers are trying to get 50-50 action, and realize the public will be quick to bet the beloved Patriots in the lone National Football League game of the night.

Winston didn't get much help.

As mentioned earlier though, the Patriots got lucky in this game due to Buccanneers kicker Nick Folk missing three key field goals, so maybe this record shouldn't be looked into too deeply as a formula for New England to retain their Super Bowl title this season.

"I thought Danny gave us a lot of critical plays in the game", Belichick said on a conference call. This Bills defense is stout in all areas and are playing like Rex Ryan wished they did during his coaching tenure. Winston and Co. got deep into the red zone before giving it to Doug Martin, who leapt over the pile for a score in his first game back from suspension this season. That's the bottom line. But there were a couple there that you're expecting him to make.

The offensive side of the ball has some gaping holes (see injured Rob Gronkowski and the lack of a viable tight end) that need filling before facing the behemoths on the schedule: Atlanta, Pittsburgh and Denver.

LB Dont'a Hightower (knee) is questionable for Thursday versus Tampa Bay.

"Been a bad week", Folk said.

"I was out to prove something", Gilmore said. But, we'll bounce back. The defense played phenomenal. Tom Brady doesn't play awful football unless he isn't comfortable and it was clear tonight. Quarterback has to make plays.
