Our Prediction: The Patriots defense has been a disaster in their first four games. Carolina had done nothing offensively in its first three games but the Panthers walked into Foxborough a week ago and lit the Pats for 33 points in a 33-30 win. The over is now a perfect 8-0 in New England’s last eight games overall and 8-1 in its last nine games played on grass. On the other side, the over is also a perfect 7-0 in the Buccaneers’ last seven games played on Thursday and is 5-1 in their last six games in Week 5.
