DENVER – The Tampa Bay Buccaneers played a mile high in Week Three and, accordingly, their Tom Brady-led passing attack reached new heights in the young 2020 season.
Brady threw three touchdown passes, two to Mike Evans, to power the Buccaneers to a dominant 28-10 win over the Denver Broncos at Empower Field at Mile High on Sunday.
The win improved Tampa Bay to 2-1 and at least temporarily put them into first place in the NFC South. The 1-1 New Orleans Saints had a Sunday night date with the Green Bay Packers at the Superdome.
Brady was as sharp as he’s been in his first season with the Buccaneers, throwing for 297 yards on 25-of-38 passing and finishing with a 115.8 passer rating after leading a turnover-free attack.
He was supported by a swarming defense that held Broncos backup QB Jeff Driskel and the home team to just 226 yards of total offense, 55 of those on a meaningless fourth-quarter drive that killed much of the remaining clock.
“We built this team on defense,” said Arians. “Tom was just icing on the cake. When we came into the offseason last year, it was, ‘Hey, let’s keep this defense together because they can be special,’ and then all of a sudden Tom was the icing on the cake for us offensively.”
