Tom Brady and the Buccaneers have bounced back. They are a .500 team again after Sunday’s dominating victory over a strong Seattle Seahawks side at the Allianz Arena in Munich. And Tom Brady did some experimenting during the game that didn’t quite work out. 

 

Fans know TB12 for his legendary throwing and passing abilities. However, no. 12 ran down the sideline and tried to Moss the Seahawks’ defense with a one-handed catch. Sadly, things didn’t go according to Tom Brady’s calculations.

Tom Brady almost Randy Moss-ed the Seahawks 

Brady and the Buccaneers won the battle of Munich against the formidable Seattle Seahawks on Sunday. Tom Brady threw for 258 yards with a 76% pass completion rate and 2 touchdowns. Efficient 3rd down conversions and the Tampa defense shut the Seahawks down in the 21-16 victory at the Allianz Arena. Bucs linebacker Devin White had one of those nights in the defense where everything went right. White had 9 combined tackles and sacked Seattle QB Geno Smith twice in the ballgame.

The running game did the trick for the QB and Tampa. Buccaneers RB Rachaad White rushed for 105 yards with 4.8 YPA. However, that wasn’t the running highlight of the game. The highlight came in the 3rd quarter of the game when 7x Super Bowl Champion QB, Tom Brady, started on the far end of the line of scrimmage. Brady then went on a Randy Moss-like run and attempted to catch the ball one-handed from a Leonard Fournette throw. Fans loved TB12’s receiving effort and wished he didn’t slip.

Seahawks cornerback Tariq Woolen intercepted the Fournette pass when Brady slipped and even he couldn’t resist commenting on Brady’s tweet.

Is this the comeback everyone expected from TB12?

The botched play was RB Leonard Fournette’s only throw and only interception of the game. Some fans think that Brady could have easily made the catch had Fournette’s throw been slightly more accurate.

Irrespective of the outcome of this unique play, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers have managed to become a .500 team in the NFL again this season. The Bucs sit atop the NFC South Division. Tom Brady’s recent comeback to good form has surprisingly coincided with the finalization of his divorce. And fans think this has got a lot to do with Brady’s recent efficiency against the LA Rams and the Seahawks.
