Things didn’t look good for the Patriots as the punted three times in the first quarter on Sunday against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
In the second quarter New England’s offense started to click as they put up 23 unanswered points and never looked back as they went on to win 23-3. The Pats improved to 3-0 for the first time in six seasons.
98.5 The Sports Hub’s Patriots play-by-play announcer Bob Socci joined Toucher & Rich to discuss the win over Tampa Bay, next Sunday’s game against the Atlanta Falcons and Miami sitting at 3-0.
The guys took some time to discuss the third win and looked ahead to the Atlanta Falcons. The Falcons are a bit banged up, so what could the Patriots have to deal with in Atlanta?
“It’s still the Falcons. It’s still Matt Ryan, far and away the best quarterback the Patriots will have faced by the end of next Sunday. It’s a controlled environment, it’s going to be loud in there, it’s of course an environment that suits the Falcons’ style of play. They like to go fast, they’ve got a lot of different weapons still at Ryan’s disposal…So certainly a very difficult challenge for the defense and again, the bar gets raised next week for that defensive unit to see where it stands overall against an offense like the Atlanta Falcons.”
Will the Patriots offense be able to build on the success that they had against the Buccaneers? Plus, what does Socci think of the Miami Dolphins being 3-0 as well?
