Tom Brady ended the Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ seven-game losing streak against the New Orleans Saints as his team overcame a fraught game filled with skirmishes and frayed nerves, sealing a 20-10 win in Louisiana.

Four of those seven losses have been since Brady arrived in Tampa Bay, and those three years of frustration seemed to weigh on the seven-time Super Bowl winner.

With 10:48 to go into the third quarter and trailing the Saints 3-0, Brady took his anger out on the sidelines by throwing a Microsoft tablet on the floor.

His frustrations simmered into the fourth quarter and, after a third-down incomplete pass to make it 3-3, he came to blows with New Orleans cornerback Marshon Lattimore. Corsairs running back Leonard Fournette and wide receiver Mike Evans intervened, triggering a skirmish that eventually led to Lattimore and Evans ejecting.

Evans was later banned from the NFL for one game on Monday for “violations of undue roughness and unsportsmanlike conduct.”

While the suspension won’t be welcome news for Tampa Bay, the incidents seemed to boost the Bucs on Sunday when Brady connected with Breshad Perriman for a 28-yard touchdown in the team’s next run to put Tampa Bay 10-3. .

After a 47-yard Ryan Succop field goal to extend the lead with 5:50 left in the game, the Bucs sealed it when Mike Edwards Saints singled out QB Jameis Winston and brought it back 68 yards for a touchdown.

“It’s an emotional game,” Brady told reporters afterwards. “A little execution really helps. I thought the defense played well again and the offensive line fought hard.

“It’s a very difficult team, coached really well – a team that we’re really struggling with, so it feels good to win.”

“And sorry for breaking that tablet,” he said… added later on Twitter. “I think that’s going to be another Twitter meme or something like that.”

It had been a hard-fought game, dominated by defenses from both teams, as New Orleans held Brady to 14/24 with a 142 yards pass and knocked out Tampa Bay until a field goal from Ryan Succop made it 3-3 late in the game. the match. third quarter.

But after Perriman’s fight and landing, the momentum spilled over to the Bucs.

“We lost a good player and she was a good player. It was a physical ball game,” Tampa Bay coach Todd Bowles said, according to ESPN. “I don’t know if it was a turning point… It could have gone either way. We knew we had to make some plays.”

Although the Saints had several chances late in the game, the Tampa Bay defense held out, intercepting Winston three times – including the winning pick-six – in the final 12 minutes.

New Orleans secured a touchdown of their own via a Winston pass to Michael Thomas with 1:08 to go, but it was too late as the Bucs held on to their first regular-season win over the Saints since September 2018, leaving the seven games were aborted. series of losses.

The Bucs remain at the top of the NFC South with a 2-0 record, hosting Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers on Sunday.
