Here's how Tom Brady fared in Bucs' Week 6 loss vs. Steelers


Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers don't look like a legitimate Super Bowl contender right now.

The Bucs offense scored only one touchdown in Sunday's Week 6 game against a lackluster Pittsburgh Steelers defense that's been hit hard by injuries all season. The Buccaneers scored that touchdown late in the fourth quarter but failed to convert the ensuing 2-point conversion attempt and lost 20-18 at Acrisure Stadium.

Patriots and Browns fans unite for NSFW, anti-Yankees chant

Tampa Bay's defense had a chance to get the ball back in the final four minutes but allowed Pittsburgh's offense to convert two third-and-long plays and kill the clock.

Luckily for the Bucs, the NFC South division is not very good, so they're still in first place despite having a 3-3 record. 

Here's a deeper dive into Brady's performance against the Steelers on Sunday.


Brady completed 25 of 40 pass attempts for 243 yards with one touchdown and zero interceptions. He also was sacked twice and fumbled once, but the Bucs recovered it.

The 45-year-old quarterback has thrown just eight touchdown passes through six games. He had 17 through six games last season.


Steelers fans did not give Brady the warmest of welcomes at Acrisure Stadium. 

The only notable highlight for Brady in the first half was him screaming at his offensive line. 

Brady connected with Chris Godwin for a huge gain in the third quarter.

Brady finally threw a touchdown pass late in the fourth quarter. He hit running back Leonard Fournette for a 11-yard score.

What's next?

The Buccaneers will go back on the road in Week 7 to play the Carolina Panthers. Brady has a 6-3 career record versus the Panthers in the regular season, including a 4-0 mark as a Tampa Bay player. He also beat the Panthers in Super Bowl XXXVIII as a member of the New England Patriots.
