Veteran NFL quarterback Tom Brady is having a ball in his debut season with Tampa Bay Buccaneers. After finishing 2nd in the NFC South, the Buccaneers knocked out divisional rivals, New Orleans Saints, on Sunday at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome.
Both teams were level heading into the 4th quarter of the game as the scoreboard read 20-20. But it was the Bruce Arians-led team that took the lead in the final quarter.
Brady made some eye-catching plays but none were better than this pass thrown to rookie wideout, Tyler Johnson, at 1st and 10.
Coach Bruce Arians painted a ‘serious’ figure at yesterday’s post-game press meet. But he did go on to single out the likes of Scott Miller and Tyler Johnson for special praise after their promising display against the Saints.
“Yeah, I mean, he (Tom Brady) sees those guys work so hard on the practice field, he’s got a great rapport with all of them, especially Scotty.
“But, I mean, Tyler, very few guys can twist and turn and make that catch but Tom put it out there and he knew Tyler can make that catch. He’s got a great, great future ahead of him,” Arians told the press.
Miller, in particular, has been lost under the radar for the most part of the 2020 NFL season. Just like Allen Lazard for the Green Bay Packers, Miller also serves as an excellent role player for the Buccaneers.
He will be a key figure for the NFC South big boys as they gear up to challenge Matt LaFleur’s Green Bay outfit on Sunday. Don’t forget to tune in.
