Your New England Patriots had an exhibition game in London after all. In a messy dispatching of the the barely professional Tampa Bay Buccaneers, the Pats scrimmaged their way to a 35-7 win they probably could have achieved without pads.
Not that the boys from Foxboro looked all that sharp. Brady three 3 TDs, but 2 interceptions. And the defense, when they decided to show up, stopped the AAA Bucs at will. When they slacked off, Tampa actually looked like they might belong on the same pitch (did you catch the Wembley reference?).
Anyway, an unsatisfying rout if ever there was one. We'll take it. And the jet lag and the 5-2 record into the bye week.
