TAMPA, Fla. – Bucs Tom Brady has 7 Super Bowl rings. The 45-year-old quarterback has won in London twice and in Mexico and can now add Germany to that list. Brady led the Bucs to a 21-16 victory over the Seattle Seahawks in the first-ever regular season NFL game in Germany.
Brady puts this experience near the top.
“It was one of the greatest football experiences I’ve ever had,” Brady said. “It felt very electric. At the end, they were singing Sweet Carolina and Country Roads. It was an amazing experience.”
Brady threw touchdown passes to Julio Jones and Chris Godwin and Leonard Fournette in stopping the Seahawks’ four-game winning streak. The Bucs are (5-5) and played well in all phases of the game.
“It felt great,” Jones said. “My number was called early and I was wide open. It was a great team win in all phases. The o-line did an amazing job moving the line of scrimmage. As you can see, it just felt effortless the way we were moving the ball.”
Down 21-3 Seahawks QB Geno Smith fired touchdown passes to Tyler Lockett and Marquise Goodwin to cut the Bucs’ lead to 21-16 in the fourth quarter. Bucs head coach Todd Bowles was happy with the win but not too pleased with how they didn’t finish strong on defense.
“We played well for 3 and a half quarters,” Bowles said. “We’ve got to finish ball games. We understand that. We played hard. Just got to stay engaged the whole game.”
This is as good as it gets,” Brady said. Really cool fanfare. Hopefully, we entertained everyone. It was very, very special. I don’t know what the future holds. it’s gonna be a fun ride home.”
Bucs have a bye now and don’t play again till November 27 at Cleveland. The Seahawks have a bye next week and will host the Las Vegas Raiders on the Sunday after Thanksgiving.
