Saints shut down Tom Brady and Bucs in first half

It’s been an ugly first half for Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ offense.

The Saints have a 3-0 lead at halftime after Brady was held to a pedestrian 104 passing yards, and the Bucs managed just 23 rushing yards.

Brady may have banged up his right hand, as he was seen having a member of the medical staff examining it. But he didn’t appear to be having trouble gripping the football, so much as he was simply having trouble with what the Saints’ defense threw at him.

The Saints have swept the Buccaneers in each of the last two regular seasons, although the Bucs got their revenge in the playoffs in 2020. Brady will try to work his magic in the second half against a defense that seems to have his number.

  1. Impossible. I’ve been told that Brady wins SBs all by himself so there’s no way he can be shut out for three quarters…..

  2. And now in the 4th quarter the officials have made a remarkable comeback to screw the saints on multiple calls.
