SB champs continue to thrive despite mounting injuries

TAMPA, Fla. (AP) The lineup keeps changing, and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers keep on winning.

The reigning Super Bowl champions (6-1) are off to their best start in franchise history, with Tom Brady showing no signs of slowing down at age 44 and an injury-depleted defense that's thriving, too, despite being without several key players.

Without injuries in the secondary to cornerbacks Sean Murphy-Bunting, Carlton Davis and Richard Sherman, unheralded backups such Dee Delaney and Pierre Desir would not be playing much - if at all - on a talented defense that was a big part of Tampa Bay's championship run last season.
