The Tampa Bay Buccaneers (5-2) scored 21 points in the fourth quarter to take down the Raiders (3-3) in Week 7. It marked the first time since 2016 that the Bucs won back-to-back games over teams with winning records and it was just the second time since 2009. Tampa Bay’s last 5-2 start was in 2008, as well, so it’s pretty clear the Bucs are currently in rare territory.

It took a complete team effort and the Raiders gave the Bucs a game for the first three quarters, but Tampa Bay was just too much in the end. A combination of good defense, precise execution from Tom Brady, and good special teams sealed the deal.

Join me as I break down what went right and what went wrong for both the Bucs and the Raiders in this game, as well as a quick rant about a certain topic that was seen throughout the game on social media.
