Tom Brady’s mercurial comeback drive against the Rams

The LA Rams were up 13-9 at the two-minute warning in the 4th quarter. All they had to do was get a first down. However, they forgot they were up against ‘Tom Terrific’. The 7x Super Bowl winner displayed his composure as he drove the offense down the field. Tight end Cade Otton made a crucial catch down in the middle before Scotty Miller dropped a vital end zone catch. However, Brady stayed calm and delivered the game-winning touchdown pass to Otton with nine seconds left on the clock.

This was a highly anticipated match up between the last two Super Bowl winning teams. Rams QB Matthew Stafford‘s 165 yards of passing and Bobby Wagner’s 13 combined tackles weren’t enough to slow Brady down. Wide receiver Cooper Kupp ran for 127 yards over 8 receptions in the 16-13 Rams loss.

Is this the comeback Brady and Co. were waiting for?
