Tom Brady asks for some space during mediocre Buccaneers loss to Browns in OT

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers (5-6) looked mediocre in defeat as Tom Brady carried his offense to a couple touchdown passes, but the Cleveland Browns (4-7) still achieved the overtime win in Week 11 of the 2022 NFL season.

Brady, 45, was one minute away from drawing his first-ever career NFL game.  Browns QB Jacoby Brissett, however, found Dee Delaney for a first and goal with 48 seconds to play in OT.  Nick Chubb then scored a three-yard rushing TD to secure the Cleveland victory.

Despite the loss, Bucs remain atop the NFC South, ahead of the Carolina Panthers and New Orleans Saints.

Buccaneers defense falls apart in OT

Brissett, 29, had found David Njoku in the end zone to tie the game in the fourth quarter with 32 seconds to play.  Brady finished the game with 246 passing yards and two TD passes on 29-for-46 completions.

In the opening quarter, Chris Godwin caught the first TD pass from Brady, and Ko Kieft was the second recepient, this time in the third frame.  Godwin, 26, was the Bucs’ top receiver with 110 yards and a touchdown on 12 catches.

Tampa Bay failed to put up any points in the fourth quarter and overtime, but he was frustrated from the start.

Tom Brady asks for some space

In the second stanza, Brady was trying to lead his huddle when a cameraman got to close for comfort, prompting the GOAT to ask for some space in an amusing manner.  On the ground, Rachaad White, contributed 64 yards and Julio Jones had a 15-yard carry in the absence of RB1 Leonard Fournette.  The Buccaneers defense allowed 189 yards on the ground, 116 courtesy of Chubb.
