Are Tom Brady and the Bucs back as Super Bowl contenders?

If there is something that the contemporary history of the NFL has taught us over and over again and that many of us do not learn, it is that every time public opinion begins to doubt Tom Brady's team, be it the New England Patriots or now the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, the quarterback shows us that he is still a candidate to win the Super Bowl.

It is true that this Monday Night Football victory by a score of 30-10 over the New York Giants was resounding but it was also against one of the worst teams this season, however, the fact is overwhelming, Tom Brady has only lost three games in a row in his career on one occasion and that was in 2002, 19 seasons ago.

Are they back on track?

Brady's consistency is impressive and the Bucs remain undefeated at home this season, their 7-3 record has them as the third seed in the NFC, tied with the Dallas Cowboys, so closing the season well for "TB12" is vital to be able, for the first time in his career, to play a playoff game at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa Florida.

The return of Rob Gronkowski is extremely important news for Tampa Bay, which had Antonio Brown out due to injury in this game, who had a week full of controversy after it was reported that he had falsified his proof of vaccination against COVID-19.

Bruce Arians had said after last week's loss to Washington Football Team that they were a "dumb football team", maybe now they are a little smarter.

Brady leads the league in touchdown passes

It helps to have the most successful quarterback in the Super Bowl era and, this season, Brady leads the entire NFL with 29 touchdown passes, as well as being second in the league with 3,172 yards per pass.

Week 12 of the NFL will give us a good test if we can once again put the Tampa Bay Buccaneers as candidates to repeat as holders of the Vince Lombardi Trophy, the visit to Lucas Oil Stadium to face the Indianapolis Colts will undoubtedly be one of the games to follow next Sunday.

Adblock test (Why?)
