The Patriots and Buccaneers get Week Five started. Will New England continue its fall? We can only hope.

NFL: New England Patriots at Tampa Bay Buccaneers Reinhold Matay-USA TODAY Sports

How the mighty have fallen.

The defending Super Bowl champion New England Patriots have the worst defense in the NFL, ranked 31st against the run (5.1 YPC) and 32nd against the pass (9.4 YPP).

Delicious.

Meanwhile, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers have Jamies Winston who has his team in the Top 10 in passing efficiency.

It’s gotten so bad that even those cocky, arrogant Patriots fans have lost all faith in their defense. Most feel that they’ll continue to be shredded throughout the season.

If you play daily fantasy football, there is one name you should be looking for when setting up those lineupes: Mike Evans. Well, and Jamies Winston too.

Knowing the NFL, however, this game could turn out to be a 9-6 affair with zero offense.
