Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady had a multitude of battles during his run with the New England Patriots, including against the Indianapolis Colts.
The future Hall of Fame quarterback clashed with the Colts a staggering 18 times, with four of them coming in the playoffs. Brady finished his Patriots career with a keen 14-4 record against them to go along with 38 passing touchdowns recorded.
Whether it was Peyton Manning or Andrew Luck under center, Brady picked up pivotal wins over the Patriots' main rival of the 2000s with relative ease.
Brady once again faced off against the Colts in Week 12, but this time in a Buccaneers uniform. The script remained the same for the seven-time Super Bowl winner, as he notched one passing touchdown and anchored a 10-point comeback win for Tampa Bay's eighth victory of the campaign.
After the game, Brady was asked whether he still gets a thrill when he clinches wins over the Colts. His answer was far from a surprise.
“Oh yeah, absolutely,” Brady said.
The Buccaneers responded well to their two-game losing streak, as they picked up back-to-back wins against the New York Giants and the Colts — two of Brady's notable rivals from his time in New England.
