Tom Brady is making playing football as and older man look entirely too easy.
Tom threw for 379 yards with 4 scores, 2 interceptions and a passer rating of 97.0 against a good Dallas Cowboys team, as they edged the Cowboys 31-29 on a game winning field goal by Ryan Succop after a 57 yard drive in 1:22 seconds led by Brady.
It helps to have his guy Rob Gronkowski back as he caught 8 passes for 90 yards and two scores.
The Bucs also got great contributions from Antonio Brown as he caught 5 passes for 121 yards with a 47 yard score, showing flashes of his old self.
The Bucs look like a well oiled machine picking right up where they left off winning the superbowl last year ready to defend their crown and send Tom Brady to God status as a football player with 8 rings.
The Cowboys start the season off with an impressive showing against the defending champs, holding a late 4th quarter lead of 29-28, before giving up a 57 yard 1:22 drive in typical Dallas Cowboy fashion.
The Cowboys have struggled to finish games as a franchise for the last 20 years it seems. Dak Prescott was rather impressive throwing for 403 yards with 3 scores and 1 interception with a passer rating of 101.4. Not bad for a qb who has missed the last 11 games of last season.
Amari Cooper had a stellar game with 13 receptions for 139 yards with a touchdown of his own. Once upon a time in talks for the best halfback in football, Ezekiel Elliott didn’t contribute much with 11 rushing attempts for a sad 33 yards.
Despite losing, and Zeke not showing up, the cowboys aren’t taking moral victories, but they have to feel great about nearly knocking off the defending champs on opening night with your QB1 playing in his first game in the last 12.
