Tom Brady and Bill Belichick have won a lot of games together, but before Thursday, there was one thing they had never done before: win a game in Tampa Bay.
The win wasn’t sealed until Jameis Winston threw an incomplete pass from the Patriots’ 19-yard line on the final play of the game.
Although the Patriots’ defense made an impressive stop on that final play, they definitely weren’t the ones who carried New England to a win in Tampa. That was Brady. Despite the fact that he got beat up for most of the game — Brady was sacked three times and hit at least 10 times — the Patriots quarterback never looked fazed.
