Tom Brady reaches new low in Buccaneers’ shocking blowout loss to Saints
This is Tom Brady’s worst loss of his career (lost by 35).
Previous was vs Bills on 9/7/03 (lost by 31).

Brady was 22-for-38 on just 209 yards, had 0 touchdown, and threw three interceptions. It is worth noting that out of Brady’s seven interceptions this season, five of them came against the Saints. In their first meeting this 2020, Brady threw two and ended up with a 78.8 rating.
Perhaps it’s safe to say that Saints have Brady’s number. At halftime, the Saints led by 31-0. Brady was just 11-of-22 for 96 yards at that point and his 24.1 passing rating at the end of the first two quarters was the fourth-worst of his career.
Tom Brady’s frustration was captured on camera.

It was just a horrible night for Brady and the Buccaneers. Perhaps what made it worse was that it was Antonio Brown’s debut. There was great anticipation that the Brady-Brown connection will work wonders for the Buccaneers, but as it turned out, miscommunication and a seeming lack of chemistry pervaded through the night.
Not even stalwarts Mike Evans, Chris Godwin, and Rob Gronkowski could save the day.
As expected, Brady’s misfortune became the subject of jokes on Twitter. One made fun of Brady’s face.
His face bout red as that jersey 😅 https://t.co/Pi97a4ToyA

Another took a stab at the Bucs’ acquisition of Antonio Brown.

Buccaneers fans are probably feeling it for Brady, too. But they also know that Brady is a legend, and legends like him know how to bounce back.
