The Buccaneers Beat The Saints In The Final Seconds On A Touchdown By Tom Brady

The Buccaneers Beat The Saints In The Final Seconds On A Touchdown By Tom Brady

The Tampa Bay Buccaneer's offense can't play well for 60 minutes. The Buccaneers needed to play well for only about five minutes on Monday night to win the NFC South race. But if that were going to happen, it would have by now. Fortunately, the greatest quarterback in NFL history ensured it did. Tampa Bay had a chance to make up ground in the fourth quarter after it trailed by 13 points in the final quarter, but they could not do so.

After forcing a quick punt, the defense handed the ball back to Tom Brady, who led the game-winning drive. Brady may not be the same player he was two decades ago, but he can still deliver some magical plays. As the Buccaneers improved to 6-6 and are in a position to win a poor division, Brady connected with running back Rashaad White for a 6-yard touchdown with three seconds left.

ESPN reported on its broadcast that the Buccaneers had not won a game when they trailed by eight or more points in the fourth quarter since 2012. It was not the Buccaneers' best choice to win Monday night. But as Brady has done so many times before, he came through when he had to. In the regular season and the playoffs, Brady was 037 in the fourth quarter when trailing by at least 13 points, according to ESPN Stats and Info. 

After a field goal, they led at halftime 10-3. However, despite the mediocre offensive performance, the defense kept the Saints in the game. The Saints haven't done much better during the Brady era, but coach Dennis Allen has been fantastic against Tampa Bay. During the regular season, Brady had only played the Saints four times.

We were able to find a solution

Last season, the Saints shut out the Buccaneers 9-0. As the Saints, who were 4-8 entering the game, looked like they would get back in the NFC South race with a huge victory, Allen had Brady's number again. Brady somehow managed to find a way. As the Saints jumped ahead 16-3 in the fourth quarter, there was little hope for the Buccaneers. 

Then Brady could pull Tampa Bay out of a brutal three-and-a-half quarter for them. After the two-minute drill, Brady came alive. Scotty Miller got a first down to the Saints' 20-yard line. In about 30 seconds, Julio Jones made a circus catch at the five-yard line. While Christian caught a touchdown pass, left tackle Donovan Smith was charged with a holding penalty, putting the Buccaneers in a bind. The Patriots just scored another touchdown. It didn't matter.
