Baker Mayfield, first-place Buccaneers head into bye week with surprising 3-1 record

TAMPA, Fla. (AP) Tampa Bay’s quest for a third straight NFC South title is off to a surprisingly strong start.

A 26-9 road victory at New Orleans left Baker Mayfield and the Buccaneers (3-1) alone atop the division heading into a bye week that will give several key players, including star receiver Mike Evans, an opportunity to get healthier.

“Again, it’s only the first quarter of the season. 3-1 is good, better than 1-3,” coach Todd Bowles said, reflecting on a solid opening month of the season that few outside the Bucs locker room anticipated following the retirement of Tom Brady.
