Brady, Bucs breeze past Raiders

Tom Brady threw four touchdown passes and ran for another score and moved past Drew Brees into the NFL’s top spot for career touchdown passes as the visiting Tampa Bay Buccaneers cruised to a 45-20 victory over the Las Vegas Raiders on Sunday afternoon.

Brady, who has thrown 559 TD passes in his career, moved past Brees (558) with a 1-yard pass to rookie Tyler Johnson with 3:08 remaining to seal the victory. Brady completed 33 of 45 passes for 369 yards and no interceptions.

Chris Godwin caught nine passes for 88 yards, including a 4-yard touchdown pass with 7:22 remaining that made it 31-20, and Scotty Miller caught six passes for a career-high 109 yards and a touchdown for the Buccaneers.

Rob Gronkowski caught five passes for 62 yards and a touchdown, and Leonard Fournette, back after missing three games with an ankle injury, rushed for a game-high 50 yards on 11 carries and also caught six passes for 47 yards.

Derek Carr, making his 100th career start, completed 24-of-36 passes for 284 yards and two touchdowns and an interception while Daniel Carlson connected on field goals of 42 and 36 yards for Las Vegas (3-3). Nelson Agholor caught five passes for 107 yards and a touchdown for the Raiders, who managed just 76 yards rushing.

Tampa Bay (5-2) built a 24-10 lead in the third quarter after a 1-yard quarterback sneak by Brady in the first, his 24th career rushing TD, and in the second period on touchdown passes of 5 yards to Gronkowski and 33 yards to Miller. A 29-yard field goal by Ryan Succop boosted the lead to 14.

But Las Vegas closed to 24-20 after a 1-yard touchdown pass from Carr to Darren Waller in the third period and a 36-yard field goal by Carlson with 12:43 to play.

The Buccaneers then broke the game open with two touchdowns in the span of 42 seconds. The first came on a 4-yard touchdown pass from Brady to Godwin to cap an 11-play, 67-yard drive. The second came on a 1-yard run by Ronald Jones II two plays after rookie Antoine Winfield Jr. intercepted Carr at the Las Vegas 24.
