Without needing to be amazing, Tom Brady did whatever it took to get the Tampa Bay Pirates back on the right track.
The quarterback ended his team’s short two-loss streak with a 3-10 victory over the New York Giants on Monday.
Brady was instrumental in the hack’s first offensive line, ending with a touchdown pass to Chris Goodwin.
Everything was fine for the quarter until turning. The interception would be his problem, but in reality, Mike Evans threw in the accurate quarterback pass and the ball ended up in Adoree’ Jackson’s hands while the Bucs were deep in their ground.
After a few matches, the Giants showed authenticity as Daniel Jones joined forces with Andrew Thomas who had a nice catch in the end zone for the middle finger. Thus creating a 10-10 tie in the second quarter.
Tampa Bay took over after that. Ronald Jones put his team back on top with a six-yard drop. Mike Evans fixed his fatal mistake in the third quarter. On the line, the receiver set a team record with a 72nd touchdown in pirate uniform, beating Mike Alstott.
Brady finished the night with 307 yards and a 10-yard dash caught the eye.
“We’re at a good stage, but we can play better than we did,” Brady said. Hopefully our best football is ahead of us. “
“He could have thrown the ball off, but I saw him run and that was fine,” said Rob Gronkowski. It was so wonderful. “
The Bucs defense was resisted by Daniel Jones, who was limited to 167 yards and had two interceptions in the second half. Back in the game, Saquon Barkley’s running back was only 25 yards on six buggies.
This gain allows the Bucs to cement their position at the top of the Southern Division of the National with a 7-3 record. They are ahead of the New Orleans Saints (5-5) and the Carolina Panthers (5-6).
A seven-time Super Bowl winner, Brady leads the NFL quarterbacks with 29 touchdowns and sits second with 3,172 air yards.
All-star sole Rob Gronkowski is back in the Buccaneers squad after missing five of his last six games. Brady targeted him eight times and Gronkowski grabbed six balls for 71-yard gains.
