Tom Brady is in a difficult situation that he hasn't experienced in ten years.
On Sunday afternoon, Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers were expected to stroll into Acrisure Stadium and defeat the Pittsburgh Steelers with ease.
Despite losing rookie quarterback Kenny Pickett to a concussion in the third quarter, Mike Tomlin's team didn't give up and ended a four-game losing streak with an
unexpected 20-18 triumph. Mitch Trubisky, a former starter, entered the game and immediately put on his best performance in black and gold, completing 75% of
his passes for 144 yards and a touchdown. Brady put in a good effort despite not having his best game of the season, completing 25 of 40 passes for 243 yards and a touchdown.
Brady's stat line is perhaps more spectacular because he was pressured all afternoon and was sacked twice in the first half.However, Tampa Bay's 3-3 record is not impressive,
and Brady might be questioning if it was a good idea to play in his 23rd NFL season given that he is now in a situation that he hasn't been in for ten years.
Before this year, the three-time NFL MVP had only four Week 6 or later records of.500 or worse in his 22 seasons as a starter.
When Brady was still a member of the New England Patriots in 2012, it happened last.They and the Falcons, who unexpectedly defeated the 49ers in Week 6, are currently tied for
first place in the division. However, Tampa Bay presently holds the tiebreaker as a result of defeating Atlanta 21-15 in Week 5. In Week 18, the two teams will again face off.
