Patriots first team offense (if you want to call it that minus Moss, Maroney, Stallworth and Watson) went three-and-out on its first drive, then put together a longer drive which stalled around the Bucs 45 yard line.
Kevin Faulk saw a lot of action, catching a few balls in the flat, though overall his and the teams running game got seemingly nowhere. Welker showed his good hands with a floating catch near the sideline. Brady didn’t take many chances and missed a wide open Welker on a second down, but as long as No. 12 walks of the field injury free, most Patriots fans will sleep easy.
With the offense only slated for about 10 plays, it’s unlikely we’ll see Brady and co. again tonight.
