COMMENT

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers demolished the Chicago Bears to secure their sixth win of the season as Tom Brady threw for four touchdowns in a first half that was dominated by the homeside.

Brady continues to make history

Brady missed out on his third straight home game with five passing touchdowns, but he did throw his 600th touchdown pass of his career early in the first half.

The Bucs did enough in the first half to be able to put it on cruise control in the final two quarters.

Chicago received the ball for the opening possession of the game, and went three and out. That would be the last time the game was even remotely close.

Five touchdowns in the first half for Bucs

A 43 yard pass interference call on Tampa Bay’s first play was a sign of things to come. Two plays later it was Leonard Fournette celebrating his two yard touchdown run to open the scoring just three minutes into the game.

Brady and the defense took over from there.  The Bucs defense forced three turnovers in the opening half, while Brady would punish those mistakes made by Bears QB Justin Fields.

The opening touchdown pass went to Chris Godwin, and the next three found their way into the hands of Mike Evans.

Bucs D forced five turnovers

The Bears got a consolation field goal late in the second quarter, but that would be the only time the Bears would score all afternoon.

Both teams took their feet off the pedal in the second half. Tampa Bay would score one more field goal, as the Bears offensive struggles continued.

The one concern surrounding the Bucs was their defense, but they played disciplined, devastating defense, forcing two fumbles and three interceptions. There is no need to get carried away in Tampa for the near shut out of the lowly Bears, but it is certainly a welcomed sight for a team that does everything else nearly perfectly.

Bucs offense unstoppable at home

The Bucs are trying to keep up with the undefeated Arizona Cardinals and the rest of the top teams in the NFC for home field in the playoffs. Home field throughout the post season would be particularly beneficial for Tampa Bay considering they are scoring over 40 points a game at home this season.

Brady and the Bucs move on to 6-1 on the year, while the Bears drop to under .500 at 3-4.

Evans almost gave Brady's 600th TD ball away

Brady, the Goat on and off the field.

You could say that Coach Arians is pleased with his squad.

Brady giving some love to a young fan that said Brady help him beat cancer.

And one more just for good measure from Brady to Evans right before the half.

It took the Bucs just three minutes to put the first TD on the board.
