Buccaneers’ Tom Brady tries to sneak illegal 2nd pass vs Rams, gets caught
Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady had one of the most bizarre episodes of his career on Monday night against the Los Angeles Rams. In the fourth quarter when the Bucs were trying to get back in the game, Brady was trying to look for WR Mike Evans but the pass was deflected back to Brady.
The rule is that you cannot throw two forward passes in one play which, obviously, the 43-year old is well aware of. But, Tom Brady tried to sneak one in and completely disregarded the rule. He threw the ball right back to Evans as soon as he got it back. Evans caught the second pass for an eight-yard gain.

Since Tom Brady’s second pass was totally illegal, the Bucs were initially penalized for an illegal throw. Interestingly enough however, the Rams declined the penalty which allowed Tampa Bay to move forward eight yards. The Bucs’ drive ended with a punt on 4th and 2.
Tom Brady’s fourth-quarter mishap wasn’t the only thing he’d want to erase from him memory after their 27-24 home loss. Though the three-time MVP connected with two passing TDs, he was sacked once and threw two crucial interceptions. His second interception of the night came right above the two-minute warning in the Bucs’ final offensive drive to try to tie the game or take the lead.
In the end, it was the Ram’s top-rated defense who dominated the match and left Brady and his offense running circles all evening long in Tampa Bay. When things like this happen, you definitely get a feeling that it wasn’t Tom Brady’s day.
