That’s why Tom Brady is the GOAT.
Tampa Bay’s offense was dormant for 55 minutes Monday before Brady directed two touchdown drives to give the Bucs a stunning 17-16 victory over the New Orleans Saints.
The Saints were as stunned as anyone who had watched the game by the result.
Tampa Bay had nothing going for it and then Brady directed his 44th career comeback in the fourth quarter and overtime, pushing him past Peyton Manning for the lead in that category.
Brady threw a TD pass with Cade Otton to bring Tampa Bay within 16-10 with three minutes left exactly.
The Saints went nowhere and were unable to take much time off the clock.
They punted to Tampa Bay and the GOAT did what only GOATs do.
He threw one touchdown pass that was negated by a holding penalty on Donovan Smith, the most penalized player in the league.
That didn’t faze Brady for a second. He kept his team focused and found Rachaad White with the game-winning TD pass.
Ryan Succop came on and the Bucs had a 17-16 lead and victory with 3 seconds left.
It was the latest in regulation Brady had thrown a game-winning touchdown pass in his career.
