Rams vs. Buccaneers live score, updates, highlights from ‘Monday Night Football’ game

Follow Us on Social Media

The Week 11 edition of “Monday Night Football” features a rematch — well, sort of.

The Rams (6-3) face Tom Brady, who beat them in the 2019 Super Bowl and is now a member of the Buccaneers (7-3).

Tampa Bay bounced back from a brutal 38-3 beating from the Saints in Week 9 with a convincing 46-23 win over the Panthers in Week 10. Brady, 43, has the Bucs sitting just one game behind New Orleans in the NFC South thanks to a potent offense. With explosive weapons like Mike Evans, Chris Godwin, Antonio Brown, Rondald Jones and Leonard Fournette at his disposal, it isn’t surprising to see the veteran QB having another successful season.

However, it’s been proven over the last few years that there is one reliable way to shut down a Brady-led offense: a strong pass rush.

In that nightmarish loss to the Saints, Brady was hit nine times, three of them for sacks. Putting Brady under constant pressure forced him to make mistakes, resulting in three interceptions for New Orleans’ defense.

The formula for LA will likely be the same: knock Brady on his butt, force him to make quick decisions and capitalize on his mistakes. And with pass rushers like Aaron Donald and Leonard Floyd, it’s possible that we could see Brady struggle again.

11:14 p.m. — Two-Minute Warning. Buccaneers have it, first and 10 at their 38-yard line.

11:11 p.m. — FIELD GOAL, RAMS. Gay hits from 40 yards to give LA the lead, 27-24 with 2:36 remaining.

11:00 p.m. — TOUCHDOWN, BUCCANEERS. Brady finds Godwin wide open on the right side and Godwin leaps and reaches across for the score. Tampa Bay ties the game at 24-24 with 3:53 left to play.

10:48 p.m. — Rams punt. Another three-and-out for LA. Looked like they might have gotten the ball on a fumble on the return, but a Rams player touched the ball first so it’s automatically Tampa Bay ball. Bucs have it at their 37-yard line, 10:18 left to play.

10:42 p.m. — Buccaneers punt. Strange play on third down as Brady’s pass is batted back to him, and he throws it a second time to Evans.

10:07 p.m. — INTERCEPTION. This time LA’s defense comes up with the big play as Brady overthrows his man and Jordan Fuller comes up with the easy INT. Rams take over at the Tampa Bay 37-yard line, 7:42 left in the third quarter.

10:04 p.m. — MISSED FIELD GOAL, RAMS. Gay pushes this one fro 44 yards wide right; Buccaneers take over at their 26-yard line, 8:25 left in the third quarter.

9:55 p.m. — FIELD GOAL, BUCCANEERS. Tampa Bay goes three-and-out but the big play by JPP still sets up a 38-yard field goal for Ryan Succop to tie the game at 17-17 with 12:41 remaining in the third quarter.

9:50 p.m. — We’re back for the second half; Rams receive the opening kickoff.

9:35 p.m. — FIELD GOAL, RAMS. Matt Gay connects from 38 yards out. Hell of a job by the Rams to spike the ball with 1 second left on the clock after 35-yard completion from Goff to Woods. HALF: Rams 17, Buccaneers 14.

8:55 p.m. — Rams punt. LA comes up short and Tampa Bay will get the ball back at its 24-yard line, 12:00 left to play in the first half.

8:47 p.m. — TOUCHDOWN, BUCCANEERS. Brady throws it to Evans, who does the rest and fights through a couple of tackles for the 9-yard TD. It’s all tied up at 7-7 with 14:10 left in the second quarter.

8:44 p.m. — END OF 1Q: Rams 7, Buccaneers 0. Tampa Bay has it, second and 5 at the LA 13-yard line to start the second quarter.

8:34 p.m. — TOUCHDOWN, RAMS. Jared Goff finds Robert Woods on third and goal for a 4-yard TD and LA leads 7-0 with 3:55 remaining in the first quarter. Nice opening possession for the Rams.

8:21 p.m. — Buccaneers punt. Brady can’t quite connect with Mike Evans. A touchback gives the Rams the ball at their 20-yard line for their first possession, 11:47 left in the first quarter.

8:15 p.m. — Rams win the toss. They defer to the second half, so Tom Brady will lead the Buccaneers out for the opening drive.
