Buccaneers Topple Raiders 45-20, Move To 5-2


The Tampa Bay Buccaneers traveled to Las Vegas for the first time to take on Derek Carr and the Raiders. The Raiders were coming off a huge win against the Kansas City Chiefs, and were flying high at 3-2. That sentiment changed after Sunday.


Quarter One

The Buccaneers started the game three and out, with the defense giving up an opening touchdown to Nelson Agholor.

Tom Brady and the offense got back on track, finishing off a solid drive with a quarterback sneak, evening the game at 7-7.

Quarter Two

The Raiders continued to abuse the secondary, but was eventually forced to settle for a field goal.

Brady was heating up, finishing off a drive with a Rob Gronkowski fade for a touchdown. The Buccaneers retake the lead 14-10.

With two minutes remaining, Brady led a surgical drive down the field, capping it off with a beautiful 33 yard pass to Scotty Miller.

Quarter Three

Coming out of halftime, the Buccaneers got off to a slow start. A Ryan Succop field goal extended the lead to 24-10, but Derek Carr wasn’t finished yet.

After driving down to the one yard line, Carr got the mismatch he wanted with Lavonte David on Darren Waller. Las Vegas brought the game to one possession with a 24-17 deficit.

Quarter Four

The fourth quarter was all Tampa Bay. A beautiful pass to Chris Godwin gave Tom Brady 558 career touchdowns, tying Drew Brees all time.

But Brady wasn’t done yet, as he later finds Tyler Johnson in the back of the end zone to hit 559 touchdown passes, officially passing Brees.

The Buccaneers defeated the Raider 45-20 to move to 5-2 on the season. Devin White finished with three sacks, and Antoine Winfield Jr. recorded his first NFL interception.

The Buccaneers will take on the New York Giants on Monday Night Football next week, as they look to get their sixth win of the season.
