For the past 20 years, Tom Brady‘s elite quarterback play has defied all odds, leading to his seven Super Bowl victories.
While he is a no-doubt Hall of Famer, Brady looked human on Monday night in the Tampa Bay Buccaneers loss to the Dallas Cowboys.

This blowout loss was one of the worst in recent memory for Brady, who tends to shut down opposing teams’ hopes and dreams.
On Monday, however, as seen in the above video, the Cowboys defense utterly confused Brady, causing him to have an uncharacteristic performance.
The Cowboys defense severely limited Brady’s effectiveness, as he needed to attempt 66 passes, the most in his 20-year career.
Brady’s finishing stat line was 35/66, with 351 passing yards, two touchdown passes, and one interception.
In a vacuum, having 351 passing yards is not necessarily something to be concerned about.
However, by having to throw almost 70 times, Brady was shaken and was never able to get into a rhythm.
After the game, Brady made several comments that have made NFL fans everywhere question whether he will retire, return to the Buccaneers, or join a new team.
Brady’s performance left something to be desired, and we would be truly surprised if he finished off his career with a game like this.
There will be many questions and storylines that are set to play themselves out over the next several months, and Brady’s status is surely one of them.
Make sure to pay attention to NFL news this offseason, which should provide lots of drama and controversy.
