Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers had the Carolina Panthers exactly where they wanted them.
The Bucs were down 11 points in the fourth quarter Sunday in a game they needed to clinch the NFC South.
So, what did the GOAT do? Launched another comeback, of course.
There were a pair of touchdown passes to Mike Evans, a strip sack of Sam Darnold that eventually led to a score and a 30-24 victory.
Of course, the clinching TD came on a quarterback sneak by Brady, his third of the season, as a 45-year-old.
The Bucs scored 20 straight points in the final quarter to end any playoff hopes of Carolina and New Orleans.
The Bucs are all of 8-8 but that doesn’t matter as Brady & Co. are NFC South champs and back in the playoffs.
