Carsen Enos '22
The Buccaneers won their fourth game of the season this past Sunday against the Miami Dolphins in a blowout with a score of 45-17. Tom Brady threw for 411 yards and five touchdowns for the first time in his illustrious 22-year career. Antonio Brown showed no signs of slowing down as a playmaker, becoming the fastest NFL player to 900 receptions.
Brown, the Buccaneers' wide receiver stated “I take so much inspiration from Tom. As a professional, as a leader, making sure that I’m doing my job, making sure that all the other 10 guys are doing their job." Antonio did his job. He had seven catches for 124 yards and two TDs occurring with a reception of 62 yards and the other a 4-yard reception. Brown, who signed with the Bucs last year while on an 8-game suspension has managed to stay out of trouble and continue his domination.
While with the Bucs Antonio Brown has managed to help win the Super Bowl and joined Julio Jones, Jerry Rice, Torry Holt and Andre Johnson as the only players in league history with 12,000 career receiving yards in fewer than 150 games. Brown isn't the only one contributing to Buccaneers' domination.
Mike Evans, Rob Gronkowski, and Chris Godwin, all of which are elite receivers, have also helped to ensure the Buccaneers offense stays unstoppable. Bruce Arians, the Bucs head coach, said “When you got Chris and Mike, and AB’s the third guy, it’s ain’t a fair fight."
The Buccaneers will take on the Philadelphia Eagles this Thursday Oct. 14 in an epic week 6 showdown. The Eagles are looking to stay hot after previously defeating the Carolina Panthers in a close game as well as Tom Brady and the Buccaneers looking to continue their dominant season and move to 5-1 on the season.
