April 16 (UPI) -- Tom Brady's Tampa Bay Buccaneers are projected to win more games next season than his former team, the New England Patriots, according to Caesars.

The sportsbook published projected win totals for all 32 NFL teams Thursday. Tampa Bay will win nine games in 2020, while the Patriots will win 8.5 games -- their lowest projected total since 2003, Caesars said.


The Patriots have won at least nine games every year since 2001. New England hasn't had fewer than 11 wins since 2010 and no fewer than 10 wins since 2002.

Brady was the quarterback for the Patriots during that entire 20-year window before he signed with the Buccaneers this off-season.

The New Orleans Saints and San Francisco 49ers are each projected to win 10.5 games. The Dallas Cowboys, Philadelphia Eagles and Seattle Seahawks have projected win totals of 9.5. The Buffalo Bills, Pittsburgh Steelers and Minnesota Vikings join the Buccaneers with a projected nine victories.

Washington hasn't had a winning season since 2016 and has had just five winning seasons since 1999.
