NFL International Series: New England vs. Tampa Bay Report
« on: October 26, 2009, 10:25:50 pm »
This weekend, the NFL came to London for the 3rd time. This was my 2nd visit and I was really looking forward to it :) Everyone expected New England to thrash the Bucs and that is really what happened lol

Tampa got the first offensive drive, and Cadillac Williams got them a few yards, but Johnson's first throw got intercepted and was ran in for a Patriot Touchdown. This set the mood for the whole game, as running was what won it and throws were not of high standard. The next Bucs drive came to nothing and they Punted to the Pats

And then Tom Brady came out. I was expecting a powerhouse performance from him, but he didnt make any spectacular throws or anything. Their first drive did lead to a touchdown but it was just very poor defence from Tampa. He threw it straight sideways and the WR just ran straight through the defence. The 1st quarter ended 14-0

The 2nd quarter didnt have much action except for another Pats touchdown, but I can't remember how it happened :45. So half-time was 21-0. It was a clear wash out as Tampa couldnt get anything going except for some good runs from Williams

In the 3rd quarter, Tampa did get a touchdown which was, in my mind, was the best play of the match. Johnson threw a 33 yard pass to his WR straight in the endzone. Then the Pats got another touchdown through bad defending by the Bucs. This left the score at 35-7... I think lol. This score didnt change during the 4th quarter as both teams took off their main players and they just gave up trying :(. This was really dissapointing :(

So the final score was 35-7. It was a good match overall :)

Did anyone else make their way down this weekend? Or did anyone watch it from home?
What was your opinion of the game?
