Tom Brady throws four touchdowns as Bucs take care of business

Tom Brady has a new record. For now.

The Buccaneers quarterback entered Sunday’s game three touchdowns behind Drew Brees for the all-time record for passing touchdowns. He threw his fourth of the day with 3:08 remaining to ice Tampa Bay’s 45-20 victory over the Raiders.

It gives Brady 559 touchdowns for his career.

More importantly, it was career (regular-season) win No. 224 for Brady.

He threw touchdowns to four different players — a 5-yard pass to tight end Rob Gronkowski; a 33-yard pass to receiver Scotty Miller; a 4-yard pass to receiver Chris Godwin; and a 1-yard pass to receiver Tyler Johnson. Brady also ran for a 1-yard score.

Leading receiver Mike Evans made only two catches for 37 yards on his two targets, though he did draw a couple of defensive pass interference penalties. Miller caught six passes for 109 yards, and Godwin nine catches for 88 yards. Gronkowski had a productive day, too, with five catches for 62 yards.

The Bucs led only 24-20 early in the fourth quarter, but Tampa Bay scored 21 unanswered points.

Brady went 33-of-45 for 369 yards and the four touchdowns, earning a 127.0 passer rating. In the past five games, he has 15 touchdown passes and an interception.

The Bucs moved to 5-2.

The Raiders managed 347 yards against the NFL’s top-ranked total defense. Derek Carr went 24-of-36 for 284 yards with two touchdowns and an interception.

  1. Maybe BB held Brady back all these years. If he was able to have his offense like this like Peyton had his to his liking his whole career, and if he actually gave him offensive weapons, maybe Brady is 9-0 in Super Bowls and has 5 MVPs.

  2. But but but he’s just a system QB
    But but but QB don’t do well the first year in Bruce’s system
    But but but Brady’s done , look at last season

    I know I missed some of the lame Brady crybaby excuses

    But you get the point

    GOAT

  3. How about that 6th ranked QBR from Derek “CHOKES AGAIN” Carr!

    Raiders still don’t have a QB on their roster, good thing they invested in a rookie to build around with all those draft picks from the Mack trade! LoL.

  4. This man put up 4k yards and 24 TDs with the worst receiving corps in football last year and it was taken for granted. Go look at NE’s offense right now. In retrospect, last year might be one of Brady’s finest.

  5. Well in my humble opinion, the Bucs are probably the best team in the NFL. With the trade for McClandon, and the addition of Antonio Brown…they are pretty legit. Especially if the refs keep allowing the Bucs o-line do what they do.

    My take aways.- with 11:57 in the 4th qtr , and Raiders trailing 23- 20-. Bucs had ball on 3rd and 13— Raiders could not get pressure (obvious hold/ no call) , and Guenther calls a prevent defense, and guys play soft and give up 14 yards- game over right there= Bucs went on for a TD.

    Carrs interception could have been easily called pass interference on Bucs ,but once again no call.

    Gabe Jacksons ejection is puzzling from what I can see. (never showed anything to have him ejected) He gets hit late, gets up to help his teammate who Gholston is rolling up on, and wont get up, and then Suh pulls Jackson from the pile. I thought for sure the flag was on Suh if anybody from what you can see.

    Raiders on a number of plays just were not good at execution. – Carr had wide open receiver (Waller) and his foot gets taken out by o-lineman, Aghlor just missed a catch on the two yard line , and raiders settle for field goal, Waller on 3rd down play runs the rout a yard to short, etc….just little stuff, but give Bucs D credit most of the gam,e- Jacobs never really got going.

  6. Delusional Raiders fans claiming the Bucs are the best in the league, lolololol. Of course you blame the refs for Carr’s INT, the Raiders just suck and got completely blown out.

  7. The refs were ignoring holding by both teams all day. Don’t use the refs as an excuse for getting smoked. The Bucs and Brady were just better.

  8. I’ve always enjoyed watching Brady. With that said, I enjoy watching him in a different division for a change!

  9. Was that Devin White i saw, with 11 tackles and THREE sacks, the same Devin White that OAK honchos left on the draft board because they absolutely had to have, ummm, checking my memory, oh yeah, Clelin Ferrell?

    How did Derek “elite” Carr only score 20?

    ================

    Carr has no control over the plays that come in from the sidelines and he’s forced to execute the plays that Gruden calls. Gruden’s preference is for the dink-and-dunk system with mostly short passes. When Bill Musgrave ran the Raiders offense Carr used to air it out on a regular basis and the Raiders were one of the highest scoring teams in the league.

  11. But Lamar is the new generation of QB! He’s much better than Brady!
    Turns out TB12 is still one of the best in the game when he actually has some wide receivers who are NFL-level talents, not all-conference college players. Not to mention Gronkowski is starting to look like himself again. That team is going to be tough to stop down the stretch, although the D is suspect. I’m also not sure Arians has the discipline and focus to keep them on the rails when things get tight, but regardless the people in Boston have to be ready to jump into the Charles River with where things stand.

  12. Derek Carr doesn’t have control over the plays? Isn’t he the QB, the one player running the offense?

    The excuses are a riot from these sore loser Raider fans that just got their teeth kicked in.

  13. Aaron Rodgers is the GOAT. Prove me wrong.

    I can prove you are obsessed with Brady.

    He’s not even the top 2 QB of all time on the Packers

  15. Congratulations to Brady for dominating a Raiders defense that made Josh Allen look like an MVP candidate.

    Pretty much like what he has done to your Jets for the past 20 years

  18. There’s a new sheriff in the NFC south, his name is Tom Brady. A Wilson vs Brady Championship game is gonna be great this year.

  19. Aaron Rodgers is the GOAT. Prove me wrong.

    —————————

    A 13 year old knows what he will do even before game starts, a fatal problem in playoff.

  20. Carr was not the problem in the game. Defense gave up 45 points and had been mostly a disappointment. Paul Gunther needs to go. He has been abysmal for all but a few games over 3 years. If the issue is players out of position, it’s obvious that he’s not the one to coach them to be in position because that is a recurring theme. It’s time to go in another direction. Also, Trent Brown needs to be suspended for conduct detrimental. Enough with that guy. He’s a great player but does not have the desire to play. His “injury” that lasted 3 months and now getting covid and passing it along to other players. He had not shown any inclination of being a team player.

    Go back to the pats boards. Oh ya that’s right, they were humiliated today so now we change don’t we.

    Now now little guy, haven’t we been through this already?

    It’s okay to be a Patriots fan (even if they aren’t doing well) and still root for Brady to do well.

    Again, when you grow up you will understand these things.

  22. The Bucs have got to work on their secondary. They have such a great defense. The Chargers, Saints, and Raiders have already taken advantage of the deep ball against them. If they can stop giving up those large gains on one play, they’ll be solid super bowl contenders.

  23. It’s a good thing Tom brought his “system” with him to Tampa aay haters… When he goes to the Superbowl this year I wonder what excuse will the haters be spewing

  24. i just like watching the GOAT pile up wins at 43. incredible! montana was a pretty decent qb and brady is about to lap him. there’s no one in the rear view mirror.

  25. What you’re witnessing will never be seen again.

    The anti-Brady crowd continues to make us all laugh.

  26. I bet Brady must have hijacked the “system” to Tampa. The Pats are filing a stolen property case against Brady and Cam must be crying “give me back the system! Wah wah wah…”

  27. The Raiders got revealed, they can’t compete with that bottom five defense. Furthermore, they don’t a have reliable QB.

    Raiders fans can make all the excuses they want, they have a 14 wins in the past three years. Trash Squad, got flecced by the Bears!

  28. Thank you, thank you, thank you SNF for not showing this game on prime time and instead, showing arguably the best game of the year. IMHO, the Raiders should never be on prime time until they have at least one season at .500.
