Overall Team DVOA

14.9% 13th

Another year, another Tom Brady comeback. The Buccaneers started the season in style, beating a feisty Cowboys team and maintaining the top DAVE rating in the league. But it's not all smooth sailing for Tampa Bay so far. Dallas was able to expose some weaknesses on the perimeter; Tampa clocks in 24th in defensive DVOA after one week as the Cowboys attacked the boundaries. Now missing Sean Murphy-Bunting, Tampa has some polishing and tightening to do in the secondary. Fortunately, a home game against the Falcons should give them at least one more week to tinker without excessive worry.  --  Bryan Knowles
