Tom Brady thrashed the Carolina Panthers in his season finale matchup against them. And with that impressive 41-17 win, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers proceed to the playoffs with the No. 2 seed in NFC. Although it was not much of an ideal situation for Tom Brady as he said that, he cannot control the outcome of other teams during his post-game press conference.

Yet he seemed contented to claim the two seed, and he is looking forward to his playoff run. However, with the Bucs already going through a receiver crisis heading towards the playoffs, another big blow is received by the franchise in the season finale. Cyril Grayson Jr. was pulled out of the matchup due to a hamstring injury and did not return for the remainder of the game.

“I’m not worried about two games from now,” Brady said. “I’m worried about one game from now which is the Eagles. I don’t care if the Rams would have won. That’s alright we still got the Eagles, and that’s going to be the biggest game of the season. And if we win whoever we play wherever we play. We’re still going and that’s what we gotta do.”
