Landover, Maryland – The new team, Tom Brady, also won the playoffs.
Brady threw for 381 yards and scored two touchdowns to lead the Tampa Bay Buccaneers to a 31-23 lead over Washington in the NFC wild card game on Saturday night, the first playoff game since the 2002 season. victory. Brady was critical of his game and offensive performance in the red zone, but he was happy to win his 31st postseason victory.
“There are indeed many areas to improve, but winning is great.” Brady (Brady) said, he passed 40 years old. “If you can win 100-0, then the end result will be the same. You will want to play well in every game. I think winning and moving forward are good.”
In the 42nd playoff starter, Brady did not wear a New England Patriots jersey for the first time. He took full advantage of the lack of early pressure to play against the NFL’s second-ranked defense.
The pirate ran back to Leonard Fournette (Leonard Fournette) and said: “He is a fighter. He plays, works hard and studies. He is the one for this job.”
Brady had to surpass Washington’s Taylor Heinicke, who achieved a breakthrough performance in his second professional game alone and finished first in the playoffs, replacing the injury Smith’s starter. Henniki signed with the practice team in early December, ran for 46 yards, scored a touchdown, and threw for 306 yards, scoring.
Tampa Bay coach Bruce Arians said: “He almost hit us with the leg.” “He was very elusive. We knew he would run around, there would be thieves and troubles. We really hope that Alex Because we know that part of the game will not be there anymore.”
But Hynek was not enough to overcome Brady’s intermittent brilliance. When Bill Belichick and the Patriots after the 7-9 season, the playoff winning streak soared to 11, Brady still had a chance to play in his new Participate in another Super Bowl game at home.
“We are excited to win,” said Cameron Brate, a dead-end pirate. “I don’t want to say that we breathed a sigh of relief, but at this point, we were just drawn out and won. No matter how ugly, no matter how many mistakes we make, victory at this time of the year is a victory.”
The Pirates are waiting for Chicago’s results in New Orleans on Sunday to see if they will visit Drew Blaise and Saints next weekend or host the Los Angeles Rams. They will need a bear upset to play at home.
“It’s okay,” Arians said. “Playing. It’s that important.”
For Brady, age does not seem to matter. Brady surpassed George Blanda at 43 years and 159 days, he was the oldest TD passer in the playoffs. The 36-yard scoring relationship with Antonio Brown is Brady’s longest playoff game since 2011.
Brady was methodical in the first half, completing 12 shots from 209 yards and was not fired until the last minute of the second quarter.
Heinicke made things interesting in the third game, the most notable of which was fighting for an 8-yard TD by diving on the tower at the corner of the end zone. The show even got the attention of defending Super Bowl champion Patrick Mahoms, who tweeted, “What’s bro!?!?!”
The 27-year-old hit his left shoulder and looked different the next time he drove. While observing Hynek, Brady designed a 69-yard scoring drive and capped by a 3-yard TD driven by Fournette, making it 28-16, enough to withstand Hynek’s attempt to become an impossible hero.
Washington cornerback Kendall Fuller said of Brady: “He threw what he needed.”
Who is Hynek?
Due to the tight right calf that caused Smith to be absent, Hynek became famous for himself in prime time, setting a quarterback’s highest record in a single game, and raising the question of whether he should be regarded as Washington’s future QB.
“It’s so brave,” coach Ron Rivera said. “This is one of the things that people like him work hard for themselves. He created opportunities for himself. We will see what happens.”
Hynek played only eight games and opened one in the National Football League before Saturday. When Washington called him a “quarantine quarterback,” he was taking an online math class in the old ruling district.
Recipient Terry McLaurin said: “When he first came here about a month ago, I didn’t know him.” “I even got it from him for the first time last week. Pass. But he won my respect.”
Brown received the TD in four consecutive games before the regular season, the second longest winning streak in team history. Mike Evans has a record of six games and is the best receiver in Tampa Bay against Washington, with six catches for 119 yards.
Perhaps some of Brown’s best performances were shown in the FedEx Field competition. In his only other game with Pittsburgh in Washington in 2016, he had 8 catches for 126 yards and two touchdowns.
Evans suffered a knee injury in the regular season finals. Arians says Evans is 85-90% healthy.
Pirates: RG Alex Cappa left with an ankle injury at the end of the second quarter, but did not return. Arians said it looked like a fracture and wanted more X-rays, but he added that Cappa is going to play next weekend and “it doesn’t look good.”
Washington: RB Antonio Gibson (RB Antonio Gibson) did not perform well after the first quarter but remained in the game. He has been suffering from lingering toes, which caused him to miss the last two games.
Washington: Just like the last playoff appearance five years ago, lost in the wild card round.
Pirates: If New Orleans beat Chicago, next weekend will visit Drew Blaise and the Saints in the divisional round. If the Bears are upset on Sunday, they will visit the Los Angeles Rams.
