Most passing yards in game: Mac Jones +55.5 vs. Tom Brady
"The Patriots are just edged out by the Panthers, a team that's faced even worse competition than New England, for fewest pass yards allowed to quarterbacks through three weeks. The Bucs have allowed the most pass yards to quarterbacks through three weeks. That doesn't mean the Patriots are going to shut Brady down or that Jones is going to throw for 400 yards, but it does mean that Bill Belichick could do his best to dare the Bucs to run the ball more than they usually do, especially with Rob Gronkowski expected to miss the game. And the beleaguered Bucs secondary certainly looks like one the underrated Patriots receiving corps can have success against. And if you buy into the narrative that the Bucs should win this one easily as the line suggests, won't Jones be in a position to close the gap in production in garbage time? Brady had 379 yards and 432 yards against the Cowboys and Rams but threw the ball 50-plus times in those games. Expect something more like the 276-yard, 36-attempt day he delivered against the Falcons here."
