The Buccaneers scored more than 44 points for the sixth time under Tom Brady in their win over the Dolphins on Sunday. Previously, the Bucs franchise had accomplished this feat just six times in their entire 44-year history.
Brady tossed five touchdowns in a near-flawless 30-of-41 effort against a team and coach he knows very well from his time in New England. His 15 touchdowns are second in the league but his 1,767 yards passing tops all quarterbacks five weeks into the season.
