Tom Brady’s arrival in Tampa Bay Buccaneers was met with mixed reactions from fans and critics alike. Many argued that Brady’s move to Florida was just a PR stunt.
Some even billed it as a money-minded move, claiming that he did not actually move there to win trophies but to secure one last big paycheck.
However, the six-time Super Bowl winner was adamant throughout the offseason that he moved to Tampa Bay to win another Super Bowl. Brady worked hard in training camp and was determined to start the season with a bang.
And that’s exactly what he did during Sunday’s opener against the New Orleans Saints.
Tom Brady was the first quarterback to complete a touchdown during Sunday’s game between Tampa Bay Buccaneers and New Orleans Saints.
The veteran NFL quarterback rushed for nine yards to score his first TD for the Buccaneers in the first quarter of the game. That was the result of an eight-play drive worth 83 yards, propping the Bucs up with an early lead in the game.
Of course, the final result of the game was quite different.
Despite a good start to the game, Brady could not carry the Bucs to a victory. The 43-year-old will be disappointed that he could not start his new adventure in NFC South with a win against the Drew Brees-led Saints.
There was a lot of chaos surrounding the Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ offense over the course of Sunday’s clash at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome.
Star wide receiver, Mike Evans, did not seem like his usual self. He was nursing a hamstring strain prior to the game and was a doubt for the Saints game.
Coach Bruce Arians will hope that the team comes together in the coming days. The Bucs will host NFC South opponents Carolina Panthers in their first home game on in Week Two.
Following that, they will play away against the Denver Broncos who start their campaign on Monday with a clash against the Tennessee Titans.
