Watch: Tom Brady throws pick-six in first start for the Buccaneersby Vincent Frank, Sportsnaut
Things were seemingly going pretty well for six-time Super Bowl champion Tom Brady and his Buccaneers on Sunday.
In his first appearance with Tampa Bay, Brady opened the scoring with a touchdown run. It’s the first of his career when not wearing a New England Patriots uniform.
Unfortunately for Brady and his new team, things were not clicking as the game went on against the Saints in New Orleans. That included the all-time great quarterback tossing a pick-six into the hands of Janoris Jenkins.
What an absolutely horrible pass from Brady right here. Throwing late and to the outside is never a recipe for success. Being inaccurate in the process only adds to that.
By virtue of this interception, Tampa Bay found itself down 24-7 early in the third quarter. Not a great start to the Brady era. That’s for sure.
