Tom Brady is used setting new records, but this record would not have been possible for him.
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ 27-22 loss to the Baltimore Ravens on Thursday Night Football saw the 45-year old become the most sacked NFL quarterback.
Brady was sacked twice in the second half to break and equal the record held by Ben Roethlisberger, Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback.
It’s not surprising, in fact, that Brady has been the most fired quarterback in NFL history. He’s been playing in this league for more than two decades. This does little to diminish his remarkable legacy in the game.
The Bucs’ recent loss to the Super Bowl champions is perhaps more alarming for Brady, who has never lost three consecutive games since 2002.
This marks a turning point in a season that has been difficult for Brady and the Buccaneers.
After the loss, Brady said to reporters, “I don’t think you can wipe out what happened the past eight weeks.”
We have to dig deep and see the truth, then come to work to improve ourselves.
Brady, despite a difficult season since his March retirement, has reiterated his support for the Bucs amid rumors of a second retirement.
Although his performances on the field haven’t been as impressive as we’ve come accustomed to from the most outstanding quarterback of all time, he’s still being supported by his team.
The franchise is facing problems with its offensive weapons connections, its running game and its porous offensive line.
Although they had a lead of 10-3 at the half-time on Thursday, the Ravens won the second.
Brady said, “We didn’t play well enough for victory.”
Lamar Jackson, the Ravens’ quarterback, continued his solid performances. He threw for two touchdowns as well as rushing for nearly 50 yards in Baltimore’s win. This brings Baltimore’s record up to 5-3.
