Let’s take a look at the highlights from this week’s game.
Tampa Bay’s special teams come through
Patrick O’Connor burst through the line to block Denver’s punt and give the Bucs excellent starting field position at the Broncos’ yard line.
Welcome back, Chris Godwin
Tom Brady wasted no time in driving the Bucs down the field after the blocked punt. He found Godwin on the out route for the easy score to put the Bucs up, 7-0.
Brady finds Scotty Miller deep
This is becoming quite routine. Brady finds Miller deep down the field for a 47-yard gain to set up the Bucs in scoring position.
Mike Evans’ third receiving touchdown of the season
Brady said he wanted to make Evans a household name, and he’s well on his way to doing just that. The duo hooked up for the third score in as many games in the second quarter to put the Bucs up, 17-3.

Shaquil Barrett’s first sack of the year
You knew it was going to happen. Barrett sets up a 3rd and long with this sack and forces the punt with a TFL on the next play.
Another receiving touchdown for Evans and Brady’s third touchdown of the first half
Yea, you can’t stop these two. The Bucs increased their lead to 23-3 after this play (Ryan Succop’s PAT was blocked).

Tim Patrick finds the end zone to give Denver its first touchdown of the game
The Broncos wideout put a nice move on Carlton Davis III to score the first touchdown of the game right before halftime. The Bucs led, 23-10, after this play.
Shaq Barrett gets his second sack...and this time it’s for a safety, as well
The NFL’s reigning sack master made his presence felt in this game. He gets to Driskel again, but this time it gives his team two points.

Anthony Nelson forces the interception
Lavonte David picked off a Driskel pass, but it wouldn’t have happened without the pressure from Nelson. Tampa Bay brought the house and it paid off. Tampa Bay would convert the turnover into three points and extend the lead to 28-10 thanks to this play.
There were a couple of other great plays, but one in particular was Mike Edwards’ pick in the end zone to help seal the win against the Broncos. We couldn’t get any footage of that, unfortunately.
