Tom Brady and the Buccaneers Make Historic Win in Germany

Don’t count Tom Brady out as a history-maker just yet. On Sunday, the decorated Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback led his team to a historic 21-16 victory against the Seattle Seahawks at Allianz Arena in Munich, Germany, marking their first regular season game and victory in the country. With the victory, Brady also became the first quarterback in the NFL to start a regular season game in three different countries outside of the U.S.

Brady’s three other international wins came during his days as a New England Patriot, where he won twice in London and once in Mexico City. Now, the 23-season-long player can add Germany to the list.

After the victory, Brady described the atmosphere in the Allianz Arena, the home of German football team Bayern Munich, as “pretty electric.”

“It was a great atmosphere,” he told the NFL Network. “It felt like a pretty hyped-up game when we came out for warm-ups. 

“It was pretty electric, so I hope the German fans got what they wanted. Great win by our team; we needed it. Played against a great opponent, our defense played great, and I’m glad we found a way to slug it out and win.”

Despite a tough season for the Bucs, Tom Brady gave a solid performance Sunday, throwing a 31-yard touchdown pass to wide receiver Julio Jones in the first quarter. Leonard Fournette put together yet another touchdown after a 13-play drive, pushing Tampa Bay into a 14-0 second lead.

With the Bucs up 14-3 in the third quarter, Fournette attempted to throw to Brady; however, Brady slipped, and Fournette was intercepted by Tariq Woolen. In the fourth quarter, Chris Godwin caught a four-yard touchdown pass from Brady in what looked like a finished game had it not been for a late comeback from the Seahawks. 

Tyler Lockett made a touchdown with just over eight minutes left, and shortly after, Seattle’s Marquise Goodwin caught a touchdown pass from quarterback Geno Smith to narrow the deficit to just five with under four minutes to play. But Seattle was unable to hold back a last-minute drive from Tampa Bay’s Rashaad White, who ran a career-high 105 yards and secured the team’s fifth victory of the season. 

“The big guys up front played great,” said Brady. “Receivers played great. Everyone made plays. We ran the ball great. So, that’s what we need to do. I’d say we left a little out there on the interception, a few other opportunities in the red area.”
