It’s been a while since we saw Antonio Brown do what he does best, tear defences and score touchdowns. The last time that the veteran wide receiver got into the Endzone was while playing for Bill Belichick’s New England Patriots in 2019.
Now, Brown was at it again as they Buccaneers made their way to a come-from-behind win in Week 15 against Matt Ryan-led Atlanta Falcons. The 32-year old wideout connected with Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady to hand the visitors a win after trailing by a 17-0 scoreline at halftime.
Tom Brady and Antonio Brown have shared a strong bond ever since they played together for a short spell last season. That chemistry was one display once again as the pair connected to take control of their ‘do or die’ game against Atlanta Falcons on Sunday.
On 5 receptions, Brown had 93 receiving yards and one receiving TD to his name in Georgia. Here’s how much this win meant to Antonio Brown and the Bucs. Brady, in particular, turned back the clock as he lived up to his ‘comeback kid’ nickname. The six-time Super Bowl winner threw for 390 yards today, including two passing touchdowns.
The Buccaneers eventually made their way to a four-point win over the Falcons. In doing so, they kept their playoff hopes alive. If Sean Payton’s New Orleans Saints beat the Kansas City Chiefs later today, they win the NFC South. But the Bucs can still make the post-season by qualifying as one of the top teams in their conference. They will next play NFC North franchise Detroit Lions in Week 16 of the regular season.
