Week 5's rendition of Thursday Night Football didn't quite offer what the public expected. The talented Buccaneers offense welcomed an always potent Tom Brady-led scoring unit that had been dragging along a defense allowing the most yards per game in the NFL through four weeks. Natural thought led to a projected high-scoring affair.

With just 33 points scored between the two teams, it wasn't exactly the offense-laden shootout most anticipated. The Patriots and Buccaneers both had their fair share of stalled drives.

 the eyes didn't lie when it came to Doug Martin. Anyone watching this game could tell he was a true difference-maker for the Buccaneers offense.,[url=http://www.seahawksfootballauthenticss.com/nazair-jones-jersey-authentic]Authentic Nazair Jones Jersey[/url],However, in reality, one encouraging development on Tampa Bay's side of the ball was the return of running back Doug Martin from suspension. And it was a triumphant one. Our eyes can sometimes play tricks on us; we believe we can discern truth just by what we see when, we are affected by layers of observational biases. Thursday

Martin was tackled for a loss on just one of his 13 carries. Otherwise, it looks like Martin's in for one of his peak seasons., he offered a steadying presence for a Buccaneers offense that, despite all their talent, whose ups and downs might be more pronounced than any NFL player in recent memory. Yet, has yet to truly hit its stride. Steady isn't the adjective often associated with Martin's career, if there's one truth we know for sure it's that his peaks are up in the stratosphere of the best running backs in the game. After a strong showing in the preseason and what we witnessed tonight

 his highest mark since the start of the 2016 season. It's also the 16th best "yards before close" average in a game this season among backs with 10-plus carries.,The Buccaneers' run system and offensive line are well set for a successful rushing attack. In his first three games as the starter, Jacquizz Rodgers averaged 0.68 yards before a defender closed within one yard of him, the seventh-highest mark among backs with 25-plus carries (NFL average - 0.32). It was even better for Martin tonight. He averaged a whopping 1.5 yards before defenders closed

 his second-best game over the last two seasons (NFL average - 3.85).,While Rodgers is a capable fill-in who can function in a well-conditioned running game, he doesn't unlock the high-end potential of this offense that Martin can. The good backs get what's blocked for them. The best backs create for themselves. Martin was excellent in doing so tonight, averaging 4.2 yards after defenders closed within a yard of him

 however,Martin's pristine play also creates a presence that defenders know they must respect. He saw a stacked box on 69.2 percent of his carries Thursday night. It didn't matter much, as Martin averaged 5.8 yards per carry on those plays. It was his second-best performance over the last two years against stacked boxes.

 the trouble for the Bucs is that it didn't amount to an overall strong offensive performance or result in a win against New England. When one of your top offensive players is in a groove and you hold Brady and company to under 20 points,[url=http://www.seahawksfootballauthenticss.com/eddie-lacy-jersey-authentic]Womens Eddie LacyJersey[/url],It's inarguable; the real and dominant Martin is back in the saddle for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. That's excellent news. Yet, you expect to win. Tampa Bay has to be disappointed.

The Buccaneers must cast an eye of concern to the play of their quarterback when determining why the return of Martin wasn't enough to vanquish the Patriots. The defense New England rolled out in the first four games looked like a layup matchup for any opposing quarterback.

 as he went just 2 of 6 for 19 yards under pressure (defenders within two yards at time of sack or throw). Those plays killed drives and sacrificed forward progress.,The Patriots' stop unit provided a get-right game for Cam Newton a week after getting touched by a rookie in Deshaun Watson,[url=http://www.seahawksfootballauthentics.com/malik-mcdowell-jersey-authentic]Womens Malik McDowell Jersey[/url], New England's pressure rate of 35.1 ranked 28th in the NFL. Tonight's effort was just as fruitless, despite playing in Foxborough for both contests. Their biggest issue through the first four games was their complete inability to rush the passer. Coming into Thursday night,[url=http://www.seahawksfootballauthentics.com/shaquill-griffin-jersey-authentic]Womens Shaquill Griffin Jersey[/url], posting a pressure rate of just 14.9 against the Buccaneers. Jameis Winston still let those limited heated moments get to him

 but completed just three for 71 yards.,Winston also left too many plays on the field, particularly when it came time to take vertical shots. He attempted a deep pass (20-plus air yards) 11 times in this game,[url=http://www.seahawksfootballauthentics.com/delano-hill-jersey-authentic]Womens Delano Hill Jersey[/url], the most for any of his games the last two seasons

 with the one highlight being the fourth-quarter touchdown to Cameron Brate.,The Buccaneers also need to either work with Winston to take more checkdowns or provide him more layup-type throws in the playbook, ranking 22nd among starting quarterbacks. Against the Patriots, as the amount of low-percentage throws he's trying is simply untenable. Winston came into this game throwing 29.6 percent of his passes into tight windows (NFL average - 24.2) and sporting a 64.7 passer rating on those throws, 33.3 percent of his throws checked in as a tight-window attempt. Winston completed just 46.7 percent of those throws for 105 yards

 whether by altering Winston's approach or their own offensive design,The Buccaneers, must find a way to loosen the rope constricting this pass game to low-percentage plays.

 but one who helps open up easier throws.,A player who could assist is one Doug Martin. The one-time first-round pick does have the chops in the receiving game, going out for just one play. Martin had at least one gaffe at the catch point tonight, but the Bucs didn't deploy him as such late in this game. Martin was on the field for 11 pass plays in total but saw himself completely phased out in the fourth quarter, but Tampa Bay must hope that's just rust that needs knocking off. The team and its quarterback will need him to be an asset not just as a sustaining runner for this offense

 Tampa Bay can have hope it just got a true difference-maker back in the mix.,Thursday, the triumphant return of peak Martin wasn't enough for the Buccaneers to secure a home win. It wasn't even enough for the offense to offer up one of their better outputs. Going forward, given his excellent performance coming off a three-game absence

NFL Rumors: Rob Gronkowski Not Expected To Play For Patriots Vs. Bucs

 who have combined for just two receptions this season.,Gronkowski, is listed as questionable with a thigh injury. If he cannot play, who was added to the Patriots’ injury report Wednesday, expect to see an increase in playing time for Dwayne Allen and Jacob Hollister

 whom the Patriots acquired from the Indianapolis Colts this past spring,[url=http://www.seahawksfootballauthenticss.com/eddie-lacy-jersey-authentic]Authentic Eddie Lacy Jersey[/url],Allen, has yet to catch his first pass in a Patriots uniform.

ORIGINAL STORY: Fear not,[url=http://www.seahawksfootballauthentics.com/malik-mcdowell-jersey-authentic]Authentic Malik McDowell Jersey[/url], New England Patriots fans: Rob Gronkowski should be on the field Thursday night.

 NFL Media’s Ian Rapoport reported Thursday morning. He might not be 100 percent,Gronkowski is expected to play in the Patriots’ Week 5 matchup against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Raymond James Stadium,[url=http://www.seahawksfootballauthentics.com/shaquill-griffin-jersey-authentic]Authentic Shaquill Griffin Jersey[/url], however.

The Patriots tight end popped up on the team’s injury report Wednesday as questionable with a thigh injury despite not appearing on the injury report the entire week.

He didn’t appear any worse for wear in Week 4, [url=http://www.seahawksfootballauthenticss.com/nazair-jones-jersey-authentic]Womens Nazair Jones Jersey[/url],playing all 70 of New England’s offensive snaps while catching four passes for 80 yards in a loss to the Carolina Panthers.

 we know Gronk will be in the building,At the very least,[url=http://www.seahawksfootballauthentics.com/delano-hill-jersey-authentic]Authentic Delano Hill Jersey[/url], as he traveled with the team to Tampa on Wednesday.
