Tom Brady and the Buccaneers just pulled off the rare double-win by beating the New Orleans Saints and their own coaching staff.
The Buccaneers needed a vintage Tom Brady win to get out of their slump. That is exactly what they got last night in a matchup with their hated division rivals.
The Bucs have completed a sweep of the Saints. If you told us this at the start of the season that this would happen in conjunction with a win over the Rams, we would be confident that this team was a lock for the Super Bowl.
While this may not be the case, the Bucs did make their hopes for the playoffs look a little better with such a thrilling win and an all-time Tom Brady performance.
Despite being down the whole game and being down two scores with only a few minutes left in the game, Brady and the offense were able to march down the field, score, and then the defense was able to stand tall to give the Bucs one last chance with a little time left.
Everyone knew where this was going once Brady got the ball back in a position where time was short and where a touchdown won the affair.
It was over before it really started.
Brady and the Buccaneers took care of business and scored twice (the first time getting taken off the board due to a holding penalty). It didn’t matter.
Nothing mattered when Tom Brady had the game in his own hands. Brady is still one of the best quarterbacks in the NFL, and it turns out that he is still pretty damn good when his coaching staff isn’t holding the offense back by trying to possess the ball rather than scoring points or trying to use modern concepts to win football games.
