NFL Week 10 Notes: Tom Brady’s Buccaneers get an ‘A-‘ for win in Germany; Raiders get an ‘F’ for ugly loss

The Buccaneers may want to see if they can move all of their games to Germany.

With the team in an offensive rut, the trip to Munich seemed to fix almost everything as Tampa Bay held off Seattle 21-16 in what was the NFL’s first regular season game ever played in Germany.

After struggling for most of the last seven weeks, the Buccaneers finally caught fire on the offensive end of the ball: they had their longest haul of the season (29 yards), longest touchdown of the season (31 yards) and Tom Brady actually looked like Tom Brady.

Although Brady threw an interception late in the game, he was on point on nearly every other throw completing 22 of 29 passes for 258 yards and two touchdowns, marking only the second time this year he’s thrown for multiple touchdowns. in a game.

Brady’s first TD pass was important: On a third-and-10 in the second quarter, the Buccaneers were looking at the possibility of a field goal attempt, but then Brady found Julio Jones for a 31-yard TD.

That touchdown gave the Buccaneers a 7-0 lead and they never looked back. If you’re wondering how bad Tampa Bay’s offense has been this season, just consider this: Jones’ score was the Bucs’ longest touchdown of the year. Prior to this game, the Buccaneers’ longest TD came from just 28 yards. Jones finished with three catches for 53 yards on a day when three different receivers went over the 50-yard mark.

If you want a taste of Brady’s precision, here’s a 25-yard pass he passed to Cade Otton in the third quarter.

Although Brady was huge, he wasn’t the only reason Tampa Bay’s offense was so effective. The Buccaneers’ rushing offense finally came through and helped Tampa Bay control the game.

Going into Week 10, the Bucs were poised to be the worst rushing team in NFL history averaging just 60.7 yards per game through the first nine weeks. In Germany, they had more than 2.5 times that total with a season-high 161 yards.

Rachaad White, who hadn’t rushed for more than 27 yards in any game this season, shocked everyone with a 105-yard performance. The rookie even had one of the most electrifying plays of the game when he out-armed Quandre Diggs out of the stadium on a 29-yard run, which was the longest play of the season for the Buccaneers. .

White also iced the game with 34 rushing yards on Tampa Bay’s game-sealing drive.

The Buccaneers haven’t looked like one of the best teams in the NFC in the first 10 weeks, but they still have Brady and they still have a talented roster. With their win over first-place NFC West, the Buccaneers prove they could be a dangerous team over time. In 2020, the Bucs suffered five losses before winning the Super Bowl and with Sunday’s win in Germany moving them to 5-5, that’s exactly where they’re heading for this year’s goodbye.
