Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are officially up and running in the NFL. They’ve recorded back-to-back wins in the league after an opening week loss to New Orleans Saints. They put up a defensive masterclass to outplay Denver Broncos by a 10-28 scoreline in Week Three.

Tom Brady, OJ Howard, Scott Miller, and Chris Godwin starred for the offense. However, one player who grabbed headlines was seasoned wide receiver, Mike Evans.

Tom Brady steers Tampa Bay Buccaneers to consecutive wins

Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback, Tom Brady, had another fine outing in the league this weekend. He led the Florida-based outfit to a commanding 10-28 win over Denver Broncos in Week Three. However, the veteran shot-caller was quick to single out teammate Mike Evans for special recognition after his impressive display on Sunday.

At the post-game press conference, Brady said, “He (Mike Evans) is a great wide area threat, you know. His size, his quickness, his elusiveness, his hands, everything. Mike’s one of the great receivers in the NFL. So, I gotta find ways to get him the ball and get it to him into some space, not just the right area all over the field. That’s what my job is, to find guys that are open and get it to him.”

Evans was terrific against the Broncos at the Sports Authority Field. He’s been dealing with some hamstring issues this year but has still stacked up four receiving TDs over the first three games of the season.

Head coach Bruce Arians will be pleased by Evans’ performance on Sunday, especially after fellow wide receiver Chris Godwin left the game with an injury. The Bucs will need both their dangerous wideouts to stay fit if they aim to make the playoffs this year.
