The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are arguably amongst the teams to beat this season. While Tom Brady has certainly played a huge role in their status, one cannot ignore the contribution of the rest of the offense. To put things into perspective, have a look at this stat. Leonard Fournette, Chris Godwin, and Mike Evans have accounted for 58.6% of the team’s yards, 56.2% of its catches, and 51.9% of its touchdowns. The GOAT also appreciated them in a recent press appearance.

“Yeah, [it’s] very important,” said Brady. “The offensive line sets the tone every week. We’ve got some great guys up front who have really led the way all season and we’re going to have to rely on those guys to do great things for us this week, especially going against the front that we’re going against. Big powerful guys inside, very athletic rushers on the outside – this is a very, very good defense we’re facing. Again, we’re just going to have to keep adapting.”

Brady, who himself got nominated for a record 15th time had huge praise for his teammates and shared how well deserved it was.

“There’s five great linemen we have that all play, and three of those guys got selected,” said Brady. “They’ve been the strength of our team all season. I love playing with those guys. They take a lot of pride in what they do. Everyone loves that they got the recognition because they deserve it, and at the same time they want to go earn it and make sure they’re playing their best football at this time of the year.”
