TB12 turned back the clock with an eye-catching display. He went 31of 45, throwing for 390 yards with two passing TDs to his name. Apart from Brady, the other players who impressed in Week 15 included RB Leonard Fournette and WR Antonio Brown. Brady and Brown connected for the latter’s first receiving touchdown since 2019 which also gave the Bucs the lead.

Brady’s performance from the weekend proves that he still has it in him to make an impact at Tampa Bay. But can he repeat the same antics in the playoffs?

He said, “That’s about Tom Brady, understanding how to get teams over the hump, understanding how to use his individual matchups to the best of his ability, and then you watch Todd Bowles defence and Devin White begin to put pressure on Matt Ryan. This is the team that plays better when they’re back against the wall because they forget about all the stuff they talked about all week.”

“And now it’s all right, Tom, you tell us how to get there. And this is the way they need to start every week. This is the way to need to understand how to win. Because when you have those great skill players in the greatest of all time playing quarterback let him run the show. And Bruce Arians has to relinquish that control,” Clark said on the show.
