FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) — Tom Brady threw two touchdown passes to Kenbrell Thompkins, finally getting in sync with his rookie receivers and leading the New England Patriots to a 23-3 win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday.

Thompkins, an undrafted free agent, scored on plays of 16 and 5 yards, while Aaron Dobson, a second-round draft pick, finished with seven catches for 52 yards for the Patriots (3-0).

The Patriots led 17-3 at halftime as the Buccaneers (0-3) wasted several opportunities.

They turned the ball over twice on downs, Rian Lindell missed a 38-yard field goal attempt before making a 30-yarder and Josh Freeman threw an interception to former Bucs cornerback Aqib Talib with 11 seconds left in the first half.

Three plays later, Stephen Gostkowski kicked a 53-yard field goal on the final play of the half.
