Tom Brady just did something he’d only done in Super Bowl LI vs. Falcons

Monday night’s epic comeback win over the New Orleans Saints was a rare one, even for Tom Brady

It won’t go down in history quite like his epic comeback in Super Bowl LI against the Atlanta Falcons, but Tom Brady pulled off a similar feat Monday night against the New Orleans Saints.

With back-to-back touchdown drives in the final minutes to secure a 17-16 win, Brady won a game for just the second time in his career with trailing by at least 13 points in the fourth quarter.

Tampa Bay was trailing 16-3 with just three minutes remaining Monday night, but the GOAT found a way to steal another dramatic victory, throwing the game-winning touchdown pass to rookie running back Rachaad White with just three seconds left on the clock.

Bucs fans will remember this one for a while, Saints fans will want to forget it, and Falcons fans won’t want to be reminded of the only other time Brady pulled off this kind of win.

WATCH: Tom Brady talks Browns loss, Monday night matchup vs. Saints

Hear what Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady had to say after Thursday’s practice

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are coming off another disappointing loss, this time an overtime defeat on the road against the Cleveland Browns, but they’ve got a huge matchup to focus on this week.

Monday night, the Bucs will host the division-rival New Orleans Saints, and hope to get some revenge for back-to-back home losses in prime time against their NFC South foes.

After Friday’s practice, Bucs quarterback Tom Brady spoke with the media about last week’s loss, and what lies ahead Monday night:

NFL insider sees Tom Brady reunion as realistic option for Patriots

One last ride for Brady, Belichick and the Patriots? One NFL insider isn’t ruling it out.

Legendary quarterback Tom Brady could be nearing the end of his wildly successful three-year run with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and one NFL insider isn’t ruling out a possible reunion with the New England Patriots.

But who is going to be John Cusack standing underneath the window with “In Your Eyes” playing on the boombox—the Patriots or Brady?

That obviously isn’t half as important as the mere possibility of Brady returning to his old stomping grounds at Gillette Stadium and finishing his career out in a Patriots uniform.

When discussing possible destinations for the 45-year-old quarterback, Jeff Howe of The Athletic wrote:

“And finally — maybe hold onto your phone with two hands for this one — don’t ever write off the Patriots.

Brady and Bill Belichick still have an abundance of respect for one another. They’ve made points to say it publicly on multiple occasions since the QB departed for Tampa. They also spent 23 minutes together in the visiting locker room at Gillette Stadium following Brady’s return in 2021 — an appointment they set up prior to the game.”

The Patriots are projected to have the fourth-most cap space in the NFL in 2023, which would open the chance for Belichick to do some splurging in free agency.

Make no mistake, it’s probably going to take a little bit more than sentimental value for Brady to go back to New England. Landing a true No. 1 receiver, performing some offensive line maintenance and bringing on a legitimate offensive coordinator would go a long way in making Brady an attractive offer.

And no, that doesn’t necessarily mean it would be the end of Mac Jones’ run in New England. The second-year quarterback would only improve when taking a backseat to Brady for a year.

The move would make for the perfect swan song for the greatest dynasty in NFL history. Belichick, Brady and the Patriots for one last ride.

Who wouldn’t want to see that?

Tom Brady compares NFC South to Mike Tyson-Evander Holyfield fight

Tom Brady has an interesting comparison for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ situation in the NFC South this season

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have struggled to live up to their lofty preseason expectations, limping to a 5-6 record through the first 12 weeks of 2022, falling well short of the bar they set for themselves over the previous two campaigns.

Despite their lackluster performance so far this year, the Bucs still find themselves in first place in the NFC South, which is proving to be the worst division in the NFL this season.

This still gives hope to the Bucs and their fans, as they still control their own destiny for a division title, which would come with a home playoff game as the NFC’s No. 4 seed.

On the latest episode of his “Let’s Go!” podcast, Brady acknowledged the situation in their division this year, with a curious comparison from elsewhere in the sports world:

The Bucs haven’t lost any ears this year, but they’ve suffered through their share of injuries to key players. Pro Bowl center Ryan Jensen was lost to a serious knee injury on the second day of training camp, All-Pro pass rusher Shaq Barrett sustained a season-ending torn Achilles earlier in the season, and All-Pro right tackle Tristan Wirfs suffered a high ankle sprain Sunday.

Brady and his team have definitely taken some tough punches this year, but they’ve still got the opportunity to win the fight, and make another playoff run.

Browns ended a ridiculous streak for Tom Brady with late comeback win

Tom Brady had an incredible career streak broken by the Cleveland Browns in Sunday’s overtime loss

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers let a seven-point lead slip away in the final moments of regulation Sunday against the Cleveland Browns, then let the entire game slip away in overtime.

Sunday’s 23-17 loss was a huge setback for the Bucs, but it also ended an incredible streak for their quarterback.

Heading into this Week 12 matchup, Tom Brady had an all-time record of 218-0 when leading by seven or more points with two minutes or less remaining in a game. Now, he’s 218-1 in those situations.

Brady threw for 246 yards and a pair of touchdowns Sunday, but it wasn’t enough to overcome a long list of self-inflicted errors for the Bucs, who fell to 5-6 on the season with yet another disappointing loss to an opponent with an inferior record.

WATCH: Bucs QB Tom Brady reacts to crushing OT loss vs. Browns

Hear from Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady following Sunday’s overtime loss to the Cleveland Browns

Despite coming out of a bye week after back-to-back wins, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers fell flat Sunday, letting a late lead slip away in a 23-17 overtime loss to the Cleveland Browns.

After the game, Bucs quarterback Tom Brady reacted to yet another disappointing loss to a team with one of the worst records in the league:

Tom Brady has now thrown a TD pass to 96 different players

Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady keeps adding to an already ridiculous list of touchdown recipients

At this point, Tom Brady is just padding his own records in just about every passing category, including this one.

With his second scoring toss of Sunday’s game against the Cleveland Browns, Brady has now thrown a touchdown pass to 96 different players over his 23-year NFL career.

This one was the first career NFL touchdown for rookie tight end Ko Kieft, a sixth-round pick in the 2022 draft out of Minnesota.

Brady might have to stick around for another year if he wants to get to 100, though.

Tom Brady pokes fun at his 1st NFL game

Tom Brady jokingly reflects on the anniversary of his first regular-season appearance

On this day in the year 2000, Tom Brady made his NFL debut for the New England Patriots.

It wasn’t much to write home about, as Brady came in for some mop-up duty for the New England Patriots in relief of veteran starter Drew Bledsoe, at the end of a blowout loss to the Detroit Lions.

Brady commemorated the occasion on social media Wednesday, responding to a post about his first career pass with a breakdown of how the entire appearance played out that day in Detroit.

Those were the humble beginnings of what would become the most decorated career of any quarterback in NFL history, one that Brady continues to write with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers to this day.
