Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady set yet another NFL record during the Buccaneers loss to the New Orleans Saints.

In a game that should not have been as close as it was given how sloppy the Bucs played in every facet of the game when it comes to turnovers and penalties, there was one positive. If you even want to call it that of course.

Cyril Grayson came out of absolutely nowhere to catch his first career touchdown on a play where he was stupidly wide open and on the receiving end of an absolute bomb from Brady. In doing so, he had the honor of catching Brady‘s fourth touchdown of the afternoon.

Why is this significant? Well, this game was Brady‘s 38th in which he threw four or more touchdown passes. With that, Brady now has the most games with that many touchdown passes, breaking the record he had previously shared with, ironically, Drew Brees of all people.

That won’t be what Brady is thinking about after this game though. The most competitive athlete, and probably human, on the planet is already looking ahead to the Buccaneers next game, as of course is tradition. His late interception that sealed the loss and resulted in a pick six will be the motivation he needs going forward. After the game, Brady mentioned how he knows that this team has a lot of tough players and that they will be fine. If Brady isn’t worried, we shouldn’t be either, even if Bruce Arians called the game “an embarrassing display of football“.

This loss was ugly, but with all the faults from the Bucs side of things, they still were in late. The Buccaneers are going to be fine, especially if Brady continues to add on to this record that he broke today.
