Tom Brady suffers humiliating loss to the Panthers

Written by Tony Ghaul

Tom Brady, winner of seven Super Bowls, Sunday’s clunker in Carolina was all-time low for the legendary quarterback.

Brady’s Buccaneers, once considered a prime preseason contender for the Super Bowl in the NFC, couldn’t even score double-digit points against the Panthers in a beyond-embarrassing 21-3 defeat.

A dropped pass in the first quarter from wide receiver Mike Evans, a play that likely would have resulted in a touchdown, looms large on the Buccaneers list of regrets from Sunday, but quarterback Tom Brady does not seem too concerned about it in the grand scheme of things.

“It was one play,” said Brady in the post-game conference, per Buccaneers’ senior writer Scott Smith. “There were a lot more plays in the game.”

The Buccaneers have now fallen to 3-4 on the season after the 21-3 loss to the Panthers, a team not expected to be particularly competitive following the recent trade of star RB Christian McCaffrey to the San Francisco 49ers.
