A look at who's up and who's down from the Patriots' 27-10 loss to the Buccaneers after watching the game live, then re-watching the TV broadcast:
Up Stephen Gostkowski -- His 53-yard field goal at the end of the first half was arguably the team's best play of the night.
Mike Vrabel -- Provides pressure to help the Patriots' defense get off the field on third-and-6 early in the second quarter and finishes with six tackles in his first action of the season.
Wes Welker -- Breaks a tackle by Buccaneers linebacker Derrick Brooks to gain 12 yards on third-and-8 at the end of the first quarter, one of the best plays by a Patriots receiver all night. Later converts another third down.
Down Matt Cassel -- Fails to seize the opportunity to win the No. 2 quarterback job, locking on Randy Moss on a near-interception on the opening march. In all, he directed six drives and the offense produced just three points, which wasn't neccesarily all his doing but it ultimately comes back to the quarterback.
Dan Connolly -- Center's errant shotgun snap resulted in a touchdown for the Buccaneers.
Kevin Faulk -- Loses a fumble that ultimately ends the team's second drive, which had been its most promising.
Inside linebackers -- Some of the main first-half problems in the running game seemed to come right up the middle -- at Tedy Bruschi, Jerod Mayo and Gary Guyton.
David Thomas -- Tight end gets knocked back by defensive lineman Ryan Sims on a block that results in Laurence Maroney getting tackled for minus-2 yards, which stunted the progress of the second drive.
Pierre Woods -- Outside linebacker gets sucked in and fails to contain on Antonio Bryant's 16-yard run on an end-around, the third play of the Buccaneers' opening scoring drive.
NOTE: Starting Friday in the Patriots' preseason game against the Eagles, the plan will be to wrap up the night with "ups and downs", then post an updated "ups and downs" after rewatching the game.
