Tom Brady reminded the Atlanta Falcons and the rest of the NFC South of one thing last night, the division still goes through him. Brady put on an impressive aerial show against the Cowboys and led a two-minute drill to set up a game-winning field goal, winning 31-29.
If you’re the Falcons or Saints hoping Brady or the Bucs would take a step back this season you were severely disappointed.
Tampa’s defensive front looked dominant despite the struggles in their secondary. It is without a doubt the toughest front seven in football. If Tampa was able to fix their issues in the secondary they may not lose a game this season. Taking advantage of the secondary is the opposition’s only hope.
The Atlanta Falcons, Carolina Panthers, and New Orleans Saints will all be dominated by Tom Brady this season
Offensively Brady looked ageless, finishing the night with 379-passing yards and 4-passing touchdowns. He put the ball exactly where it needed to be all night and when he needed a big play he found Antonio Brown or Rob Gronkowski.
Despite the fact, New Orleans was the official division winner last year it was Tampa who got the last laugh. They beat the Saints in the playoffs and reclaimed division dominance. Dominance the Falcons, Panthers, or Saints have no hope of stopping this year.
Brady is every Falcons fan’s nightmare, the nightmare that ruined their Super Bowl dreams and orchestrated an impressive comeback last season.
Tom Brady doesn’t age, doesn’t lose, and defies all of sports history. Unfortunately for the rest of the NFC South Thursday night’s win illustrated that defiance of age and history is going to continue this season.
The only hope for the rest of the NFC South is to contend for a wildcard spot because simply put they can’t and won’t beat Tom Brady. A painful fact the Atlanta Falcons and their fans are tired of learning. No franchise will be as happy as Atlanta if Tom Brady ever does retire.
