NFL Twitter erupts after Tom Brady appears to forget number of downs on Bucs' final drive
The Tom Brady era in Tampa Bay has been a bit mixed so far, but hit its most entertaining point of the season on Thursday. Entertaining at least for Brady's haters.
Brady drove down the field at 20:19 against the Chicago Bears less than a minute to go and faced a 41:6 moment. Brady's passport to Cameron Brate was broken, giving the Bears the win.
However, Brady was seen signaling to officials that he believed he still had fourth place to work with. He was wrong.
Of course, one of the most successful (and unpopular) quarterbacks in NFL history to lose a game by a brain fart, especially after yelling at teammates on the sidelines, would be a glorious moment for a certain subsection of Twitter.
There were jokes. So many jokes including some comparisons by J.R. Smith. Los Angeles Lakers legend Magic Johnson was also there to do his brand analysis.
