NFL Week 10 Ratings: Tom Brady’s Buccaneers Earn an ‘A-‘ for Win in Germany; Raiders get an ‘F’ for ugly loss

The Buccaneers may want to see if they can move all of their games to Germany.

With the team in an offensive rut, the trip to Munich seemed to fix almost everything as Tampa Bay beat Seattle 21-16 in what was the NFL’s first regular-season game ever played in Germany.

After struggling for most of the past seven weeks, the Buccaneers finally caught fire on the offensive side of the ball: They had their longest rush of the season (29 yards), their longest touchdown game of the season (31 yards) and saw Tom Brady actually looks like Tom Brady.

Though Brady threw an interception late in the game, he was on point on nearly every other throw as he completed 22 of 29 passes for 258 yards and two touchdowns, which was only the second time this year he’d clinched for multiple touchdowns thrown in a game.

Brady’s first TD pass was a big one: On a third and 10 in the second quarter, the Buccaneers stared at the possibility of a field goal attempt, but then Brady found Julio Jones for a 31-yard TD.

That touchdown gave the Buccaneers an early 7-0 lead and they never looked back. If you’re wondering how bad Tampa Bay’s offense has been this season, just consider this: Jones’ score was the longest touchdown of the year for the Bucs. Before that game, the Buccaneers’ longest TD came from just 90 yards. Jones finished with three catches for 53 yards in a day that saw three different receivers surpass the 50-yard mark.

If you want a taste of just how accurate Brady was, here’s a 25-yard pass he put through to Cade Otton in the third quarter.

Though Brady was huge, he wasn’t the only reason Tampa Bay’s offense was so effective. The Buccaneers’ quick attack finally showed itself and helped Tampa Bay control the game.

Entering Week 10, the Bucs were on track to become the worst rushing team in NFL history, averaging just 60.7 yards per game in the first nine weeks. In Germany, they had more than 2.5 times that with a season-high 161 yards.

Rachaad White, who hasn’t rushed for more than 27 yards in any game this season, shocked everyone with a 105-yard performance. The rookie even had one of the most electrifying plays of the game, stiff-armed, chasing Quandre Diggs out of the stadium on a 29-yard run in what was the Buccaneers’ longest-running game of the season.

White also iced the game with 34 rushing yards on Tampa Bay’s Game Sealing Drive.

The Buccaneers haven’t looked like one of the top teams in the NFC for the first 10 weeks, but they still have Brady and they still have a talented roster. With their victory over the first-place NFC West team, the Buccaneers prove they could be a dangerous team in the long run. In 2020, the Bucs had five losses before their bye before eventually winning the Super Bowl, and with Sunday’s win in Germany putting them 5-5, they’re heading right there for this year’s bye.

Okay, let’s get to the scores for each game from week 10. If you’re looking for a deeper dive into the Panthers’ win over the Falcons played on Thursday, be sure to click here.
