Open thread for the New England Patriots week three match-up against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Week three is finally here! After a longer than normal wait following a week two Thursday game, football is back on Sunday's as the Patriots will play host to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers today at 1:00 PM ET.

This match-up will feature two teams that have undergone a lot of scrutiny during the infant portions of the 2013 NFL season. I'm expecting, much like the Patriots first two games of the season, a very close game. Ultimately, I think that the Patriots pull out a victory in this one. But if the Buccaneers can find a way to turn the criticism they've endured into a rallying cry, I could easily see them pulling off the upset.

Greg's Prediction: Patriots 20 Buccaneers 17
