The New England Patriots beat the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the second week of preseason action 25-21. After a scare earlier in the week, quarterback Tom Brady played well completing 11 of 12 passes for 107 yards and 1 touchdown pass.

Patriots head coach Bill Belichick was less than pleased however.

“Our team is still in a growing stage,” Belichick said after the game, via Pro Football Talk. “We have a lot of work to do. We’re nowhere close to where we need to be for the opener or for the 16-game regular season schedule. We have a lot of work to do. We’re going to stay at it. It’s not over by any means. We’re not anywhere close to where we need to be. Training camp is not over. Let me make that perfectly clear.”

If you were curious, Tim Tebow played horrendously. He completed one 1 out of 7 passes for -1 yards. He also throw an interception for a zero passer rating.

Ryan Mallett played better though, that may or may not surprise you.
