For the last two decades, Tom Brady has made a living beating up on the Miami Dolphins and New York Jets. However, now that he has taken his talents to Tampa Bay, that is no longer the case.



For the second time this season, Tom Brady and his Buccaneers were dominated by Drew Brees and the New Orleans Saints. The 38-3 loss is the worst of Tom Brady’s career, per ESPN, and truly displayed the gap between the Saints and the rest of the NFC South.


Brady’s performance on Sunday night was absolutely abysmal. The 43-year old finished 22 of 38 passing with 209 yards and three interceptions – one of which could easily be considered the worst throw of Brady’s career. This coming off of a solid five-game stretch that saw the former Michigan Wolverine throw for fourteen touchdowns to only one interception.


The Buccaneers fell to 6-3 on the season, and will likely fail to win the NFC South after being swept by the New Orleans Saints. Pending a playoff matcup, the 2020 edition of Brady v. Brees belongs to Brees convincingly.


Brady and the Buccaneers will look to get back on track next week when they travel to Charlotte to take on the Carolina Panthers.
