NFL Week 10 grades: Commanders earn ‘A+’ for shocking undefeated Eagles; Tom Brady’s Buccaneers get an ‘A-‘

Published:

The Buccaneers might need to see in the event that they can get all of their games moved to Germany.

With the team in an offensive rut, the trip to Munich looked as if it would fix nearly every thing as Tampa Bay held off Seattle 21-16 in what was the NFL’s first regular-season game ever played in Germany. 

After struggling for many of the past seven weeks, the Buccaneers finally caught fire on the offensive side of the ball: They’d their longest run of the season (29 yards), their longest touchdown play of the season (31 yards) and Tom Brady actually looked like Tom Brady. 

Although Brady did throw an interception late in the sport, he was on point on nearly every other throw as he accomplished 22 of 29 passes for 258 yards and two touchdowns, marking just the second time this yr he’s thrown for multiple touchdowns in a game. 

Brady’s first TD pass was an enormous one: On a third-and-10 within the second quarter, the Buccaneers were looking at the opportunity of a field goal attempt, but then Brady found Julio Jones for a 31-yard TD. 

That touchdown gave the Buccaneers an early 7-0 lead they usually never looked back. For those who’re wondering how bad Tampa Bay’s offense had been this season, just consider this: Jones’ rating was the longest touchdown of the yr for the Bucs. Before that play, the Buccaneers’ longest TD got here from just 28 yards out. Jones finished with three catches for 53 yards on a day where three different receivers went over the 50-yard mark. 

For those who need a taste of how accurate Brady was, here’s a 25-yard pass he through to Cade Otton within the third quarter. 

Although Brady was huge, he wasn’t the one reason why Tampa Bay’s offense was so effective. The Buccaneers’ rushing attack finally showed up and it helped Tampa Bay control the sport. 

Going into Week 10, the Bucs were on pace to be the worst rushing team in NFL history with a median of just 60.7 yards per game through the primary nine weeks. In Germany, they’d greater than 2.5 times that total with a season-high 161 yards. 

Rachaad White, who hadn’t rushed for greater than 27 yards in any game this season, shocked everyone with a 105-yard performance. The rookie even had one of the crucial electrifying plays of the sport when he stiff-armed Quandre Diggs out of the stadium on a 29-yard run, which was the longest running play of the season for the Buccaneers. 

White also iced the sport with 34 rushing yards on Tampa Bay’s game-sealing drive. 

The Buccaneers have not looked like considered one of the highest teams within the NFC through the primary 10 weeks, but they still have Brady they usually still have a talented roster. With their win over the NFC West’s first-place team, the Buccaneers are proving they may very well be a dangerous team down the stretch. In 2020, the Bucs had five losses heading into their bye before eventually winning the Super Bowl and with Sunday’s win in Germany moving them to 5-5, that is exactly where they’re heading into this yr’s bye. 

Alright, let’s get to the grades for each game from Week 10. For those who’re on the lookout for a deeper dive on the Panthers‘ win over the Falcons that was played Thursday, make sure to click here.
