TAMPA, FL – The moniker of “lovable loser” is acceptable in baseball, but in football you either win or get carried out on your shield. The Bears must have a ship load of shields on order, because it is going to be a bloody year.
In today’s defeat, Tom Brady became the first player in NFL history to throw 600 career touchdown passes, and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers pillaged the Chicago Bears 38-3.
The defending Super Bowl champions won their fourth straight game to improve to 6-1 and avenge one of their five regular-season losses a year ago.
Brady finished 20 of 36 passes for 211 yards and four touchdowns. Mike Evans caught 600th pass and finished with six receptions for 76 yards and three touchdowns.
Justin Fields, the Bears’ rookie quarterback, was sacked . . . what is the point?
