The Goat, Tom Brady, efficiently led the Bucs to a home win over the Rams 21-14. The Bucs avoided turnovers against the Aaron Donald & Jalen Ramsey LA defense. Donald caused some damage with a forced fumble knocking the Bucs out FG range early on. Jalen Ramsey locked up his side of the field all night. The Bucs offense was stop and go at times but made the plays when they absolutely needed it. Tompa Brady led back to back touchdown drives. The first was a masterful drive right before half time with 56 seconds on the clock, score tied at 7. A four play 75 yard drive was capped with AB hauling in a 33 yard TD with 12 seconds left, Bucs up 14-7. He followed that up with a clock burning 4 minute drive to start the 3rd quarter. The eight play, 78 yard drive was punctuated with a Godwin 16 yard TD catch giving the Bucs a two score lead 21-7.
Shaq Barrett started the scoring with a tipped ball pick six. The play was made by Sean Murphy-Bunting swatting a dart from Goff that went high in the air. Barrett ever aware had it fall into his hands and returned it 27 yards for a defensive touchdown. The Buc D gave up some ground to Cam Akers and a Woods TD. Early in the 4th the Rams got to within a score 21-14. Shaq added to his stat line with his second sack of the day turning back a potential game tying drive in the 4th quarter. On the day the defense forced 3 interceptions and got crucial stops in the 4th quarter.
Good game Cowboy Curt.
