Antonio Brown had a nervous breakdown and exits the field in the middle of a game.
In the fourth quarter, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers lost Antonio Brown after he made a weird, shirtless run off the field. The Bucs won a 28-24 victory over the New York Jets.
After the game, coach Bruce Arians said that Brown was no longer with the team.
“He’s no longer a Buc,” said Arians very clearly.
It was near the end of the third quarter, and Tampa Bay was down 24-10. Brown went into a rage. In the end zone, he walked down the sideline with no shirt on, and he seemed excited to talk to teammate Mike Evans. In the end zone at MetLife Stadium, he then ran into the tunnel and waved to the crowd.
Angry: Brown, who caught three passes for 26 yards, looked like he didn’t like what was going on.
Brown was suspended for three games last month for breaking the league’s COVID-19 rules. Because of his weird behaviour and problems with personal conduct, he has also had a history of these things.
Soon after Brown left, Brady threw a touchdown pass to Cameron Brate on fourth-and-goal from the 4, and the quarterback threw a 33-yard pass to Cyril Grayson with 15 seconds left.
Josh McCown was stuffed by the Bucs on fourth-and-2 at the 7 with 2:12 left in the game, giving Brady and the Bucs the ball back.
There was a lot of time.
During nine plays, Brady led the Buccaneers (12-4) down the field, including a touchdown pass to Grayson, who was moved up from the practise squad. Third touchdown pass of the game, and Brady’s 40th this season. He’s also become only the second quarterback in history to throw for 40 touchdowns in consecutive years, with Drew Brees.
Before the week was over, Arians had tested positive for the coronavirus. Tampa Bay was able to get him back. He made 34 of 50 passes for 410 yards, three touchdowns, and a pick-off.
He ran in the two-point conversion for his old team, which made New York need to score a touchdown. However, the Jets (4-12) ran out of time.
At least 1950, the game had the widest age gap between starting quarterbacks when Wilson, 22, took the field against Brady, 44, at the start.
First of all, Ty Johnson ran 1 yards for the Jets to end their first play of the second half. That gave them a two-touchdown lead.
Before Ryan Succop kicked a 27-yard field goal with 7:36 left in the game, Brown left the game and Brady threw a touchdown pass to Brate. New York’s lead was 24-20.
It was Tampa Bay’s fifth touchdown of the season on the first play of the game.
In the first half, Berrios caught a short ball and then jumped into the end zone for a 9-yard score and a 14-7 lead. For 19 of 33, Wilson went 19 of 33 for 234 yards and a goal.
Carter (concussion) and left tackle George Fant (left knee) both got hurt during the Jets’ 13-play, 74-yard drive. They both didn’t play again.
Aaron Brown caught a 21-yard pass from Brady for the Buccaneers, but the Jets’ defence stepped up and made the game’s first three-and-out. Succop kicked a 39-yard field goal to make the score 14-10 for Tampa Bay, making the game more exciting.
Brandon Echols caught a pass from Tom Brady and returned it 30 yards to the Jets’ 48. This was Tampa Bay’s last drive of the first half; it was also their last chance to score. With one second to go, Eddy Pineiro kicked a 51-yard field goal to give New York the lead.
HIStory that goes beyond what is in the book
Aaron Rodgers and Brady are the only two quarterbacks who have three seasons with 40 or more touchdown passes. Brady’s record against the Jets now stands at 31-8.
There is a running back for the Buccaneers. When Ronald Jones and Rashard Robinson went out in the second half, they didn’t come back in.
They also lost receivers Carter and Fant. In the second quarter, tight end Dan Brown was hurt and could not play.
