Blaine Gabbert replaces Tom Brady at QB for Bucs vs. Falcons

Tom Brady’s afternoon against the Atlanta Falcons is over.

Late in the second quarter, Brady exited Sunday’s regular-season finale, and was replaced by veteran backup quarterback Blaine Gabbert.

Gabbert’s first drive finished in the end zone, with a three-yard touchdown pass to former Falcons wide receiver Russell Gage, giving the Bucs a 17-10 lead just before the half.

Brady finishes his day with 13 completions on 17 attempts for 84 yards, including a touchdown pass to tight end Kyle Rudolph.

Regardless of Sunday’s result on the scoreboard, the Bucs will be the No. 4 seed in the NFC playoff bracket, as NFC South champions.
