All three of those scores went to the other former Patriots on the Tampa Bay roster, with Brady hitting Rob Gronkowski for two touchdowns and Antonio Brown for a one-yard scoring strike just before halftime. Tampa Bay led 21-6 at the half.READ MORE: Somerville Woman Accused Of Drunk Driving After Crashing Into Pole In NH
