MNF Recap - Brady Gets 70th 4th Quarter/OT WIN!
For the majority of last nights game, the Buccaneers looked out of sorts and completely out of ideas. Then, Tom Brady remembered he is the “GOAT”
A wild fourth-quarter rally when it seemed all but over lifted Tampa Bay to a 17-16 victory over the Saints on Monday Night Football. The Bucs trailed 16-3 with just over a little over three minutes remaining in the fourth quarter before touchdowns on each of their final two possessions gave them a last-second victory.
Brady struggled almost all night until those final minutes, but he eventually led the 70th game-winning drive of his legendary career. His touchdown pass to Rachaad White with three seconds left on the clock completed it.
The Saints had quite a few chances to put the game to bed, but close calls and some questionable decisions caused a win to slip through their fingers. Coach Dennis Allen’s decision to throw on third-and-1 with five minutes remaining brought some head scratching by fans and the media.
The win was crucial for Tampa Bay (6-6) in the NFC South race. The Bucs now lead the Falcons (5-8) by 1.5 games in the division. The loss was a huge blow to the Saints’ playoff hopes, with New Orleans slipping to 4-9.
