Watch the Buccaneers find a pass rush against the Patriots

New, comments

Three sacks and a forced fumble so far.

NFL: New England Patriots at Tampa Bay Buccaneers Reinhold Matay-USA TODAY Sports

Hey, remember when the Tampa Bay Buccaneers couldn’t rush the passer? Turns out they just need to face Tom Brady to get going. The Bucs have three sacks in this game so far, including this one where Adarius Glanton and Noah Spence decide to have a little tea party on top of Brady.

The blitz is perfectly timed, which is not something we’ve seen much of out of the Bucs this season. Their blitzes have been few, far between, and no good. So that’s good.

Also good: Spence beating Nate Solder, while getting held. I’m not sure that was necessary for the sack to happen, but it’s something Spence has been doing for weeks: both beating tackles, and getting held constantly.
