Here's a by-the-numbers look at the Bucs' 19-14 loss to the Patriots on Thursday:


Times in the past 20 years in which a Bucs kicker missed three field goals in a game. Martin Gramatica did it in 2004, Kyle Brindza did it in 2015 and Nick Folk did it Thursday night.


Consecutive passes Tom Brady had attempted without throwing an interception before Bucs safety Justin Evans picked him off in the first quarter. That was the second-longest streak of his career.


Games Evans had started before Thursday night.


Consecutive road games in which Brady had not thrown an interception.


Doug Martin rushing yards in the first half.


Martin's rushing yards per game in eight games last season.


Martin rushing touchdowns Thursday night.


Bucs' rushing touchdowns during his four-game suspension.


Consecutive unsuccessful third downs for the Bucs before Jameis Winston found tight end Cameron Brate for a 9-yard gain on a third and 5 late in the third quarter. Tampa Bay ultimately converted four of 13 third downs.


Times Winston has thrown multiple touchdowns and no interceptions in back-to-back games (vs. Raiders and Falcons last season).


Consecutive games the Bucs had won since the start of last season when holding their opponents to fewer than 24 points.
