Buccaneers’ Tom Brady sums up tough loss to Rams with one word
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers lost a tight one to the Los Angeles Rams on Monday night, 27-24. Tom Brady and the Buccaneers failed to execute down the stretch, included an awful interception by the six-time Super Bowl champ within the last couple of minutes that won the game for the Rams.
After the game, Brady summed up the defeat and their feelings with one word:
“I think that’s a good word: disappointed,” said Brady, per Greg Auman of The Athletic. “I have to do a better job, absolutely. Tonight was very inefficient, didn’t (do) a very good job during the second half. The defense played great, kept coming up with huge stops, getting us the ball back. Offensively, we just couldn’t make the plays that were necessary to be efficient, and we had plenty of chances. We’ve got to get them fixed.”
Matt Gay scored what eventually became the game-winner, a 40-yard field goal with 2:36 remaining in the game. All eyes were on Brady down the stretch to see if he could lead Tampa Bay with his usual late-game heroics.
Unfortunately, Monday didn’t prove to be Brady’s night, as he tossed his second interception on the evening with 1:49 to go in the game. The costly throw made its way to the hands of Rams safety Jordan Fuller, the recipient of both of Brady’s interceptions on the evening.
Brady finished the game 26-of-48 for 216 yards, which included a couple of touchdowns and, of course, the two interceptions. Tampa Bay will look to bounce back from this disappointing loss. However, doing so is rather easier said than done with the defending champion Kansas City Chiefs as their next assignment.
