Last week was one to remember for Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers as the San Francisco 49ers dominated them 35-7.
It was a surprising game for the 49ers, as third-stringer Brock Purdy was pushed into the starting 11 with Jimmy Garoppolo injured and led the offense with two touchdown passes and a rushing score.
It was a game that quickly got out of hand for the Bucs, as San Francisco entered the locker room at halftime leading 28-0. But Brady has never been one to back down after falling big. He only returned to Super Bowl LI when his New England Patriots trailed 28-3 at halftime and won 34-28 in overtime.

That wasn’t the result this time, but Brady was seen trying desperately to cheer his team on the bench.
“Come on, we have to fight,” he yelled at his teammates.

“It’s not that hard for us to fight harder, right? Let’s fight harder. Unless we want to give up. If we want to give up, then go ahead. Let’s fight.”
Even in the face of defeat, Brady isn’t going to wave the white flag, which is one of his many leadership qualities that his teammates love.
Brady didn’t have his best game on the gridiron, throwing two interceptions for a touchdown with 253 yards on 34 of 55.
The result was the third worst loss of Brady’s Hall of Fame career.
But despite their 6-7 record now, Brady and the Bucs remain on top of the NFC South as the Atlanta Falcons lost their second straight game. However, the Carolina Panthers defeated the Seattle Seahawks to move to 5-8 and into second place.
