Veteran quarterback Tom Brady is known as one of the strongest opponents in the history of the NFL throughout his career. Since becoming the starting quarterback of the New England Patriots, Brady has played with an intensity that has been rubbed off on his teammates. Brady’s tough game helped the Patriots win six Super Bowl trophies during his two days on the team. Brady brought the same intensity to Tampa Bay when he signed a two-year, $50 million off-season contract with the Buccaneers. In the 20-19 defeat against the Chicago Bears, Brady was spotted on the sidelines as he scolded some of his teammates after their failed attempt to win the game after scoring a number of goals on his forward line.
Since then, the Buccaneers have found their way and won the next three games against the Green Bay Packers, the Las Vegas Raiders and the New York Giants. In addition, Brady’s game made him talk about the Most Valuable Player (MVP) trophy, as some analysts predicted the Buccaneers were on their way to the Super Bowl. With three straight victories, the Buccaneers are now number one in the southern NFC, 6-2, and are heading for Sunday’s important division game against New Orleans Saints (5-2). The Buccaneers are 5.5 points ahead of the Saints, thanks in large part to the excellent game and Brady’s lead.
Sherman praises Brady’s fire game
Speaking of Brady’s great game..: San Francisco 49ers cornerback Richard Sherman was interviewed by Pro Football Focus’ Cris Collinsworth about the intensity of the veteran quarterback’s work on the field.
He is much more tense during the game than most quarterbacks, said Sherman of Brady, who he met on several occasions, including at the XLIX Super Bowl when the corner was part of the Seattle Seacocks.
Sherman said Aaron Rogers of Green Bay Packers was quite calm and confident, while Brady had a tense reading posture and a sense of urgency.
You can tell that he knows the time, Sherman said, adding that Brady is in a hurry to take the ball from him but he always knows where he wants to put it. The cornerback said that Brady’s mistakes are more like anticipation and something crazy where someone gets in the way, according to a report by Nick Goss of NBC Sports Boston.
Godwin plays the saints
Brady will have one of his main goals against the Saints now that Chris Godwin has been declared ready to play, even though the Saints broke his left index finger and defeated the Raiders in week 7. According to head coach Bruce Arian, Godwin is ready for the equipment against the Saints, according to Marty Penn of Clutch Points after repeated appearances during Friday practice. Arian has heard that he liked what he saw, causing Godwin to perform against the Saints on Sunday, according to Rick Strauda of the Tampa Bay Times on Twitter.
#The GoBuc’s WR, Chris Godwin, will play the Saints on Sunday. # He caught the ball for the first time on Friday after the injury. It’s an anesthetic.

Godwin had gotten on and off the train because of several injuries. He played the first week, but missed the second week because of an injury.
He played the third week, but missed the next two games due to a hamstring injury. Godwin played Weeks 6 and 7, but injured his finger when he scored a touchdown in Brady’s touchdown against the Raiders.
