Los Angeles led 27-3 与 7:07 remaining in the third quarter.

The Buccaneers got a few key turnovers and late in the fourth quarter Brady would find 迈克·埃文斯 for a 55-yard touchdown catch that would bring the game to within a touchdown. 用 42 还剩几秒钟, Leonard Fournette ran the ball in for a touchdown.

Brady’s appeared to have the same magic that has propelled him through his entire career. If it wasn’t for the defense allowing a big play from Matthew StaffordCooper Kupp to setup the game-winning field goal, Brady and the Buccaneers may have had a better chance of winning the game.

The retirement talk occurred soon after the loss. Brady addressed it during the postgame press conference.

I haven’t put a lot of thought into it. I’ll just take it day by day. And we’ll see,” 他说, 通过 ESPN.

Tampa Bay coach Bruce Arians said it was up to Brady whether he wanted to play in 2022.

Brady’s company, TB12 Sports, suggested the quarterback may keep playing.

You win or you learn,” the company tweeted. “There are no failures, only lessons. When you fall you need to pick yourself up with greater enthusiasm than you went down. Now we look back on an incredible season, learn our lessons, and get upbecause even greater things are coming. #KeepGoing.

As the offseason begins for Tampa Bay, Brady’s future will be among the biggest storylines.

Retirement talk surrounding Brady is nothing new. The idea of playing well into his 40s is something foreign for any NFL player. 即使在 44, Brady was able to lead the NFL with 5,316 过院和 43 触地得分.

He hasn’t exactly been too forthcoming about what he’s thought in terms of retirement. Here’s what he’s said in the recent past about when he’s going to call it a career.

I’ll know when the time’s right. If I can’t … if I’m not a championship-level quarterback, then I’m not gonna play. If I’m a liability to the team, 我的意思是, no way. But if I think I can win a championship, then I’ll play,” he told NFL journalist Peter King 在八月.

Brady said in a podcast interview in May he would consider playing until he was 50 岁.

I have a lot to give. I think there’s a lot of time and energy still focused on being a great quarterback, that when that’s done, although I’m a little fearful of it ending, I am open to the belief that there will be a lot of opportunities for me to do things that I haven’t had a chance to do, that I really think I can help a lot of people,” 他说 Hodinkee Radio.

The 50-year-old mark was a topic during the season as well.

Before a regular-season victory over the 费城老鹰队 在十月, Brady told Andrea Kremer and Hannah Storm he could play well into his 50s.

I really think I can play as long as I want,” he told the legendary sportscasters. “I could literally play until I’m 50 要么 55 if I wanted to do. I don’t think I will obviously… my physical body won’t be the problem. I think it’ll just be, I’m just missing too much of life with my family.

He and teammate Rob Gronkowski answered the internet’s burning questions in a taped segment for the team during the season as well. 两名球员都戴着反光太阳镜,布雷迪戴着渔夫帽.

Can Tom Brady play until 50 岁?” Gronkowski read.

“哇, seems to be a really hot question lately,” 布雷迪 说. “’Can Tom Brady play till 50?’ Like, 50 岁. I don’t find it so difficult, and plus living in Florida it’s kind of a retiree state. I feel like I can just play and glide into retirement. I think I can, I think it’s a yes.

Brady also revealed to the NBC production crew before the Rams game what his “完美的结局” 将会.

It’s certainly a question Brady is going to have to answer this spring.
