“We had some mishaps here and there, guys bump heads. We had a lot of turmoil going on in our organization,” David said, via The Associated Press. “Guys getting injured, guys who were a huge part of our success.”
It’s unclear what David was referring to when he said “turmoil”, but the organization had its off-field issues with wide receiver Antonio Brown, and the Bucs also had a handful of key injuries, including wideout Chris Godwin and offensive lineman Tristan Wirfs, onder andere.
Tampa Bay’s season came to an end, despite also pulling off a comeback for the ages.
Brady and the Bucs trailed 27-3 in die tweede helfte, but with the help of three Rams turnovers, Tampa Bay battled back and tied the game with 42 seconds left in the fourth when running back Leonard Fournette punched in a 9-yard TD run on fourth-and-inches.
Die Bucs, egter, never got the ball back on offense.
On the Rams’ ensuing drive, Los Angeles quarterback Matthew Stafford completed a 20-yard strike to wide receiver Cooper Kupp, which set up a 44-yard pass-and-catch to Kupp before Matt Gay’s game-winning field goal.
Brady completed 30 van 54 slaag vir 329 yards with one touchdown and one interception. He was sacked three times and lost a fumble.
As Tampa Bay enters the offseason, the question that looms is if Brady will return for a third year with the Bucs.
