Nick Folk has total meltdown vs. Patriots, and Twitter hilariously reacts

The Patriots defense bounced back in a big way after allowing 32.5 points per game over their first four contests, holding the Tampa Bay Buccaneers to 14 points on Thursday Night Football.

Due to consecutive roughing the passer calls, the Bucs were able to attempt a 56-yard field goal before halftime, which Nick Folk missed wide right. He is their number one weapon and if he misses this game along with Edelman that will be Brady's top two options.

After their win last night, that record has now moved to 12-0.

Best breakup: Jonathan Jones deflected the final pass of the game that could have given the Bucs the last-second win.

New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski is not playing Thursday night against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers because of a left thigh injury, the team announced. It's an interesting fact nevertheless. Brady, who has not thrown an interception this season, is the first player in league history to pass for at least 1,000 yards with 10 touchdowns and no interceptions through his team's first four games in two different seasons (2015). He is unguardable like no other tight end to ever play the game. As a talented team in the NFC South, this was not an easy game on paper for the Patriots.

Oh, and I guess we should probably find a guy who can give us three points when we need to have three points on the board.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers inexplicably traded up to use a second-round pick (59th overall) on Florida State kicker Roberto Aguayo in the 2016 NFL Draft.

With a rotation featuring Carlos Carrasco, Trevor Bauer and likely Cy Young victor Corey Kluber , the Indians don't have to be. They were unstoppable down the stretch, reeling off an AL-record 22 consecutive wins, baseball's longest streak in 101 years.

I know its not like he lost the game for the team, but 2 turnovers almost cost the team their win tonight.

Buccaneers coach Dirk Koetter told reporters that, after speaking with general manager Jason Licht after the game, a chat on the state of the kicking position is "forthcoming", but that they "don't want to make any rash decisions".

Best ballerina impression: DeSean Jackson tip-toed near the sideline to reel in an 11-yard reception for a first down in the second quarter.

Although it's hard to see the Bucs wanting to go down this road again, they could bring back Roberto Aguayo, who's a free agent after being cut by the Bears in early September.

The Patriots opened the scoring on Gostkowski's 27-yard field goal, capping a 13-play, 89-yard drive, which began at their 2-yard line after a 45-yard punt from the Bucs' Bryan Anger. "I've been a part of lot of teams that we didn't score many points but we won the game anyway, and there were games where we scored a lot of points and we got a win", Brady added. Brady has already been sacked 16 times this year.

Mike Evans? Blah. He finished with five catches for 49 yards.
