The Bucs used a 21-point 4th quarter to pull away for a comfortable victory over their in-state rivals and upped their record to 4-1.  Tom Brady had his first career 400-yard/5 TD game and spread the wealth around amongst his receiving corps.  The injured-plagued secondary held up in the second half and every Buc player got in the game by the end.
