Buccaneers QB Tom Brady’s savage take on facing Colts throughout career
Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady has owned the Indianapolis Colts throughout his NFL career. He did it again last Sunday, this time erasing a 10-point halftime deficit to beat them 38-31.
After the win, during an interview with Jim Gray, Brady reminded everyone of just how much he has owned them.

“I think I’ve beat the Colts the last nine times I’ve played them… it turns out that horseshoe on their helmet isn’t as lucky as it seems, which really sucks for them but not for us.”
That’s a brutal take against his former rival organization.
Throughout the better part of his career, Brady and former Colts quarterback Peyton Manning battled for AFC supremacy seemingly ever year. Despite usually having the more talented weapons, Manning usually came out with the shorter end of the stick.
Even though Tom Brady left the Patriots for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, he clearly brought with him that same level of dominance. In Sunday’s win, Brady engineered another comeback victory.
Following the comeback victory Sunday, Brady improved to 16-4 vs Indianapolis in his career. That includes a 4-1 record in the playoffs and three AFC Championship games. Manning did get that one victory over Brady in the 2006 AFC Championship though, giving him a taste of his medicine. Manning and the Colts trailed 21-3 before storming back for a 38-34 victory.
Incidentally, Brady made his first NFL start against the Colts, beating them 44-13 in Foxborough. You can make the argument that the only reason Peyton Manning and those Colts teams did not win more than one Super Bowl was because of Tom Brady and Bill Belichick.
