What turned out to be Josh Freeman’s final game with the Buccaneers proved to be another damp squib offensively and after an early fieldgoal, the Patriots were always in control of the game.  We certainly had our opportunities,’’ Greg Schiano said. “I think we had something like 14 plays in their territory at the beginning of the game and came away with three points.”
