Mike Giardi and Tom E. Curran bring you "3 and out" where they break down the difficulties the Pats will face on Sunday.

So, three reasons the Bucs will present problems to the Patriots are...

1) Back end of the Bucs' defense: Safety Dashon Goldson is one of the hardest hitters in the league and he had his suspension overturned so New England will see him in Foxboro on Sunday. Also, cornerback Darrelle Revis is, Tom Brady says, the best he's every played against.

2) The Bucs' front seven: Curran says they're fast and agressive, led by Adrian Clayborn, who gave Pats fans a scare when he rolled up on Brady's knee in practice last month.

3) Vincent Jackson: "The Patriots haven't seen his ilk," Curran said. The Bills' Stevie Johnson and Jets' Santonio Holmes don't compare to the physical Jackson at wide receiver. "He's huge and always has a good game against the Patriots," Curran said. It'll be Aqib Talib's job to control Jackson.
