The Tampa Bay Buccaneers and quarterback Tom Brady have had some stunning struggles against the New Orleans Saints since Brady came to Tampa Bay. It appears that this matchup is yet again giving them fits on Sunday.
Brady and the Buccaneers’ offense were shut out by the extremely talented New Orleans defense in the first half of Sunday’s game, which appeared to take a toll on Brady.
Tampa received the kickoff to start the second half, but Brady and the Buccaneers’ offense struggled yet again to get anything going, quickly punting after one first down on the drive.
This is where Brady let the frustrations of their struggles get the best of him, with several viral videos emerging of him losing his mind on the sidelines, with the legendary quarterback being shown throwing his helmet and a tablet to the ground in frustration.
The frustrations continue for Tom Brady and the Bucs offense today.

Brady doesn’t have struggles on the field all that often. But when he does, he has certainly shown in the past that he can lose his temper quickly, with multiple instances of taking his frustration out on tablets on the sidelines.
Brady has been very vocal in recent weeks about some of the personal issues that he has been going through with his wife Gisele Bündchen. Some of the frustrations shown by Brady may have been a combination of on-field and off-field issues reaching a boiling point.
The Buccaneers’ defense has done a great job of keeping the team in the game, limiting New Orleans to only three points through three quarters. But Brady will certainly need to play better moving forward if the Buccaneers want to be amongst the top teams in the NFC this season.
