Stats: Patriots-Buccaneers Recap

Despite having their stars in for the three-quarters, the New England offense never got anything going. Tom Brady was constantly pressured, and despite an efficient 13-for-20 showing couldn’t get much going. Stevan Ridley had the big game on offense with 87 rushing yards and another 17 through the air.

Jeff Demps continued to look good on New England’s final drive, bringing back a punt 24 yards and then breaking a nine yard run after two incomplete passes from Mallett. Unfortunately that came on 3rd-and-10, so it brought up a 4th-and-1.

Mallett was able to hit Donte’ Stallworth for a 10-yard gain to convert on the fourth down, and the two seemed to enjoy the connection. After an errant pass over the middle, the two hooked up again for a 19-yard gain. Stallworth finished with three receptions for 40 yards.

Mallett finished the drive with a nice scrambling, four-yard touchdown pass to Jason Holley to make it a 30-28 game. He finished 7-of-16 for 66 yards and two touchdowns "
