Brady, SB champs show there's lots of room for improvement

TAMPA, Fla. (AP) Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers weren't at their best in a season-opening victory. The defending Super Bowl champions will never apologize for winning.

Four turnovers, 11 penalties for 106 yards, and the fact they needed a field goal in the closing seconds to beat the Dallas Cowboys 31-29 showed the Bucs have a lot of work to do to revert to championship form.

"They're going to finish and they're going to win, but we can play better and not put ourselves in that situation," coach Bruce Arians said.
