TAMPA, FLA. (AP) - The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have been on both ends of preseason routs, but don’t expect them to take any positives out of a blowout loss to the New England Patriots.

“Usually it’s easier to teach ‘em after a big loss because you can whup them and do whatever you want to do to them and everyone is accepting of it,” coach Raheem Morris said Friday, one day after his team was dominated by New England in a 31-14 thumping. “But for us, whether it’s been a big win or a big loss … it’s been the same general approach every time I talk to the team. I don’t think it really applies to our football team.”

After a 25-0 rout in Kansas City in their preseason opener, the Bucs were humbled by the Patriots, who took a 28-0 lead on their first five possessions.
