The Buccaneers’ comeback attempt in the NFC divisional round against the Los Angeles Rams was thwarted in the final seconds. Los Angeles’ win ended one of Brady’s best seasons in recent memories.

Brady led the NFL in completions (485), tentativi (719), passaggi di touchdown (43) and passing yards per game (312.7). It was the first time he led the league in touchdown down passes since 2015 and only the third time he’s had 40 or more touchdown passes in a single season.

I know I don’t have a lot left, I really do. I know I’m at the end of my career. I wish you could go forever, but it’s just not and football comes at too high of a cost now. My kids are getting older and it’s just getting harder and harder to miss these things,” ha detto Brady. “Ma, I wanted to give myself and my teammates and our organization another incredible opportunity to accomplish something that we’d all be very proud of.
