It took just one season for Tom Brady to write his name into the Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ history books.

With his second touchdown pass of the game, Brady broke the Bucs’ franchise single-season record for touchdowns in a season, now standing at 34. Brady surpassed Jameis Winston’s record of 33 that he set a season ago.

Brady needed only 15 games to reach this record with his new team on a 27-yard touchdown pass to Mike Evans to make the game 13-0 over the Lions. The touchdown was Evans’ 12th of the year, which tied his own single-season franchise record of 12, which he set in 2014 and tied in 2016.

Brady’s first touchdown pass on Saturday, a 33-yard touchdown to tight end Rob Gronkowski, tied the team record with 33 scoring strikes.

As it stands, this ties Brady’s fifth highest touchdown passing season in his career. Though he is three touchdowns away from making his third-highest year when it comes to producing touchdown passes.

His 34th TD pass this season, which happened to have occurred in his 300th career game, is his 575th career passing touchdown. This keeps him first all-time in the NFL ahead of fellow NFC South quarterback Drew Brees by seven touchdowns.

The passing TD record was set two years in a row in BAs offense with Leftwich calling plays. Winston held the title for a short time, now it’s Brady’s.

Where’s that coaching extension? Cmon Glazers! Give Lefty the credit he deserves with a big raise!

Except Winston padded his stats in garbage time, in a 7-9 lost season, and Brady’s doing it on a 10/11 win playoff team. And Winston did it while turning it over 37 times(7 picks for TD’s), while taking 47 sacks. Brady’s doing it while throwing 19 less picks, taking 27 less sacks, and 5 fewer INT’s for TD’s…:.other than that, sure, it’s all the same lol. How’d I miss it? If I blinked my eyes, I could have sworn I was watching Jameis Winston out there at QB.

Waahhhhhh!! I wish we would’ve resigned Famous Jameis Winston… NOT!!!
If we had we’d be inheriting the longest active string of not making the playoffs from the Browns. Go Bucs!

No way. The story would be Winston finally made the post season. Winston smoked Detroit last year also, and they had their coaches and starting QB. Detroit is a cupcake.

I truly feel bad for you, if you really think that. Good god man. Jameis Winston was NEVER leading this team to the playoffs. EVER! and yippee. Glad you can cherry pick one of the only 3 great games he had all of last season. Jameis best games, are Brady’s standard games. Jameis had OTA’s, training camp, and pre-season games to learn BA and BL’s system. And yet he still threw 30 picks and led the Bucs to a 7-9 record. Brady had nothing but a shortened training camp, and practices that he organized at some high school football field.… Read more »

Hard to make the post season as a third stringer.

You know enough that while I consider you an arse I can’t call you an idiot. So I’ll go with someone Scott hired to pad site views by posting ridiculous/outrageous nonsense like his buddy the angry carrot.

That Next Gen stat of something like him throwing the most Deep completions and TDs in a single half or quarter in the league this season was pretty impressive too. I know the Lions were struggling but to see us excel beyond normal like we did was very encouraging. That was a great warm up to start firing on all cycle sets for the Post Season. Seeing Mike get all the way to 40 yards shy of his solo record was a beautiful thing too. I wish They would have just had Gabbert feeding him the rest of the game… Read more »
