NFL: Brady, improved Pats’ defense hold off Bucs


Tom Brady threw for 303 yards and one touchdown, and New England’s porous defense showed signs of improvemen­t Thursday night in a 19-14 victory over the Buccaneers in Tampa, Fla.

The Super Bowl champions rebounded from a last-second loss to Carolina, despite Brady turning the ball over twice — on his first intercepti­on in eight regular-season games and a fumble on one of Tampa Bay’s three sacks. Neither of the mistakes led to points for Tampa Bay (2-2).

Stephen Gostkowski kicked field goals of 27, 23, 45 and 48 yards for the Patriots (3-2). Ex-Jet Nick Folk missed three more field goals, including a 31-yarder in the closing minutes.

The NFL is looking into a situation Monday night at Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas City during which Redskins receiver Terrelle Pryor says he was called racist names and cursed at by a fan.
