Against the Bears, the Bucs didn’t have Rob Gronkowski. Or Antonio Brown. Or Lavonte David. Or Richard Sherman.
The Buccaneers demolished Chicago, 38-3. This was blowout city from the get-go. Tom Brady threw four more touchdown passes – three of them to Mike Evans. Tampa Bay rushed for 182 yards, including a TD run by Leonard Fournette. They forced five turnovers, and held the Bears to just a field goal.
Impressive. There’s not much more to say.
The Bucs are now 6-1 for the first time ever. They’re in first place in the NFC South. They play the Saints next week in New Orleans. This is a big, big game coming up. If the Bucs want to the win the NFC South, the Saints are the team they have to get by.
