Tom Brady's magic: Start of the Buccaneers' miraculous rebound or pure luck?

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers broke a three-game losing streak last Sunday, when all seemed lost, practically out of nowhere, quarterback Tom Brady led a spectacular offensive series with less than a minute to play in the fourth period and capitalized with a one-yard pass to tight end Cade Otton that ended up giving them a 16-13 victory over the Los Angeles Rams.

With this, TB12, who played his first game after the official announcement of his divorce with Brazilian top model Gisele Bündchen, avoided for the first time in his career having a record (3-6) with three more games lost than won and for the second time falling in four consecutive games, however, the question is whether this victory can really be a milestone to be considered again as a candidate to reach Super Bowl LVII or if it is essentially a circumstantial success.

Arguments for and against Tom Brady

The biggest argument in Tampa Bay's favor is that on more than one occasion, their famed 45-year-old quarterback has shown that he is capable of rising up from bad circumstances, perhaps none as personally and athletically terrible as this one, although history has taught us that doubting him is usually a mistake.

However, the Bucs offense in the game against the Rams looked as bad as in the past two matchups, in fact, Tampa Bay accumulates three first halves in a row without a touchdown pass and if we take out of the equation a garbage-time touchdown pass against the Baltimore Ravens in Week 8 and the aforementioned game-winning delivery to Otton with nine seconds to play, that's 10 quarters without a touchdown through the air for this team and none in the first three quarters of the past three games.

Will the Buccaneers be able to string together wins when they travel to Germany?

Next week we'll get a better idea of whether this team, which managed to move the chains for the entire third quarter against the Rams, can take the emotional buzz from the valuable win and turn it into a takeoff point in a bitter season and whether what happened last Sunday was really a product of fortune.

The Buccaneers, who with their 4-5 record are incredibly tied for the lead with the Atlanta Falcons in the NFC South, travel to Munich, Germany to face the Seattle Seahawks in NFL Week 10.
