Tom Brady is back at it again against the Dallas Cowboys

Reigning Super Bowl MVP Tom Brady proved why he is regarded as the GOAT of football with an inspiring display in the opening quarter of today’s game against their NFC East counterparts. After a couple of positive drives up the field, Brady led the Tampa Bay Buccaneers to their first touchdown of the 2020 NFL season with 5 minutes left on the clock in the 1st quarter.

On 1st & goal, the 44-year old quarterback managed to find wide receiver Chris Godwin in the endzone to give the home team a 7-0 lead in the first half.

The Cowboys did not sit back though. Dak Prescott found sophomore wideout CeeDee Lamb to give the visitors their first touchdown of the ongoing campaign.
