Brady relishing 'unique' Wembley experience
New England are finding their best form while Tampa Bay are still struggling as the teams prepare to face each other at London's Wembley Stadium on Sunday.
The Patriots set new records in a 59-0 thrashing of Tennessee last Sunday.
But the Buccaneers, lost their sixth game in six so far this year, going down 28-21 to Carolina.
But Patriots star Tom Brady said: "We don't underestimate anybody. Tampa Bay has not played the way they were hoping this year but every week is different."
Speaking before his team departed for the UK on Thursday, quarterback Brady added: "They have players who've won Super Bowls on that team and every team is dangerous so we don't take any team lightly."
It's an incredible stadium, I've seen it on TV, I've watched a lot of European soccer
This is the third NFL game in London, with Tampa Bay giving up one of their home fixtures to face the Patriots.
The Buccaneers are one of three remaining winless teams, alongside the St Louis Rams and the Tennessee Titans.
Including four defeats to end last year, they are currently on a run of 10 successive losses, their longest losing streak since a league-record 26-game streak from 1976-77.
Buccaneers coach Raheem Morris, who took over at the helm at the start of this season, is under no illusions about the size of the task for his team.
"The obvious thing there is, you're happy to take your game international and make it a bigger game than it already is," stated Morris.
"But at the same time, you're going to play a team that scored 59 points.
"[Patriots coach] Bill Belichick is not going to take it easy on us. I'm sure Bill Belichick is licking his chops, and he should be."
Belichick's side combine a slick passing game, which features Brady and top receivers Wes Welker and Randy Moss, with canny running, spearheaded at the moment by Laurence Maroney.
Brady will rely on left tackle Sebastian Vollmer, the German giant who became the first European-trained player to be selected in the NFL draft earlier this year and who was moved into the starting line-up last week because of injury.
When the Patriots are defending, watch out for Junior Seau, the 40-year-old linebacker who earlier this month came out of retirement for the third time to rejoin the Patriots.
Tampa Bay's defence, which was dominant as they won the Super Bowl in 2003, is currently ranked second-to-last in the league against the run.
When they have the ball, Morris will rely heavily on running backs Carnell 'Cadillac' Williams and Derrick Ward.
The coach opted earlier in the season to replace veteran quarterback Byron Leftwich with talented prospect Josh Johnson but Johnson is far from the finished product.
The teams arrived in London on Friday, with two days in the capital to overcome the effects of a seven-hour flight and a time difference that will be four hours at kick-off, as the clocks go back in the UK on Saturday night.
