The Week 2 game against the Green Bay Packers certainly did not turn out the way Tampa Bay Buccaneers expected it to be. Because of the absence of several wide receivers, the teams could not achieve more points. Green Bay dominated with a score of 14-12. This was the second win that Aaron Rodgers culminated against the NFL GOAT Tom Brady. Surely, Brady’s superfans wanted him to crush A-Rod’s team. However, it looks like the seven-time Super Bowl-winning elite is content with losing the game to his rival QB.

Why did Tom Brady appear complacent about losing the game?

After his upsetting loss to the Packers, the 45-year-old QB will face the Kansas City Chiefs, who also stand last a 2-1 record, in Week 4. Since many speculate this is the last season that Brady will play, this could also be a retirement tour.
