Tom Brady and the Bucs traveled to New England to play the Patriots on Sunday Night Football. In a rain-soaked evening that kept the game a low-scoring affair, the Bucs prevailed, 19-17, when Patriots kicker Nick Folk ended his streak of 35 consecutive field goals with a missed 56-yarder. Folk’s last-minute field goal attempt doinked off the left upright and allowed Brady and Bucs kicker Ryan Succop, who was 4-of-5 on the night,t o win the game and improve to 3-1.
Here is a look at the most impressive Buccaneers on Sunday night.
OLB Joe Tryon-Shoyinka
The rookie got his first NFL sack in his second start in place of Jason Pierre-Paul. Tryon-Shoyinka used an inside move on Patriots left tackle Isaiah Wynn in the first quarter to drop Jones for four-yard sack. In the third quarter, Tyron-Shoyinka came up with his second sack of the night, dropping Jones for a nine-yard loss on third-and-12 to force a punt. Tryon-Shoyinka ended the game with two tackles and a team-high four QB hits. After recording just three sacks in the first three games of the season, the Bucs finished with four sacks, and the rookie had half of them.
FS Antoine Winfield, Jr.
Winfield had yet to make a splash play in the first three games of the season, but came up with a big interception off a deflected pass in the first quarter to stymie an early Patriots drive. Winfield then came up with a huge forced fumble in the third quarter when he tackled J.J. Taylor on a swing pass. Unfortunately for Winfield, he left the game in the fourth quarter and was being evaluated for a concussion. He finished the game with seven tackles in addition to his splash plays.
