Munich (AFP) – Tom Brady has had his share of memorable football matches.
He says Sunday at the bustling Allianz Arena there.
“It was one of the greatest football experiences I’ve ever had,” said the seven-time Super Bowl champion. “He says a lot for his 23 years in the league.”
Brady remained undefeated abroad by throwing two touchdown passes to help the Tampa Bay Buccaneers beat the Seattle Seahawks 21-16 in their first regular season game played in Germany.
Brady hooked up with Julio Jones and Chris Goodwin on scoring passes and Leonard Fournette ran one while the Bucs (5-5) improved to 500.
German fans packed the Allianz Arena for the historic match and the Boss team produced a balanced attacking performance in three long scoring runs. Rashad White started and ran 105 yards on 22 buggies.
“I’ve felt electric since we took the field,” Brady said. “The end of the game with them singing ‘Sweet Caroline’ and ‘Country Roads’ – that was so epic.”
Brady completed 22 of 29 passes for 258 yards to add Germany to his international win list after victories in London (twice) and Mexico City with the New England Patriots.
Late 21-3 in the fourth quarter, Seattle’s Jenno Smith threw touchdown passes to Tyler Lockett and Marquis Goodwin to score 21-16 with 3:58 to play.
Smith found Goodwin in the corner of the end zone for a 19-yard score in fourth and 1 to complete the drive that began on the Bucs 45 after Brady threw his first interception since the season opener. Picked by Linebacker Cody Barton – Brady’s streak of consecutive passes ended unchallenged at 399, three fewer attempts than Aaron Rodgers’ NFL record set in 2018.
Lockett got a 21-yard touchdown pass from Smith with 8:20 left, but his two-point conversion attempt failed, leaving the score 21-9.
Smith was 23 of 33 for 275 yards and landed the Seahawks (6-4), who are still atop NFC West.
“It sounds like a real missed opportunity,” Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said.
The Bucs entered the game with the worst rushing attack in the league. fortnite, from He got his passport in time To travel, he had 57 yards in 14 buggies as he and White helped Tampa Bay go 10 of 15 in third.
“They didn’t run the ball very consistently, so when we got into the game we were hoping we’d be able to keep it under wraps and be able to spread the ball into the throwing game,” Carroll said. “They finished running the ball in the fourth quarter, which kills me.”
Brady is the first midfielder to play in the regular season in three countries outside the United States
Brady found Jones open on a short crossing path and the receiver turned him on for a 31-yard scoring game early in the second quarter. Jones put his left shoulder down and passed safety Josh Jones at the goal line.
Fortnite then raced from one yard to finish 13 games, a distance of 86 yards. He scored two games after Scotty Miller got a pass from 22 yards and fell while bouncing the ball at 5.
Godwin caught a 4-yard touchdown receiver to make it 21-3 early in the fourth quarter. Goodwin led the Bucs with 71 yards in six receptions. It was his first touchdown since injuring his knee at the end of the season last year.
Down 14-3, Seattle drove to the Bucs 9 before Smith’s Devin White sack, whose touch was restored by Anthony Nelson on 13.
The Seahawks had 57 net yards in the first half and headed to Tampa 22 after the break before settling on a 55-yard field goal by Jason Myers to get to the plate at 14-3.
The Bucs drove to Seattle 22 when Fortnite took a straight shot, rolled right and was thrown across the field to Brady – but was blocked by corner Tariq Wolin, who had the slow-footed 45-year-old quarterback well covered on the field. 6.
Brady was then reported for tripping – which would be a yellow card if he played for Bayern Munich.
“If he hadn’t slipped, I would have seen my head reach 42 inches,” coach Todd Bowles joked.
Brady realized that the defense was not fooled.
“I tried to scream ‘Lenny no,'” said Brady, “but it was too late.
Several players slipped on the grass at Allianz.
Carroll thought the field limited his team’s running game. Rookie Kenneth Walker III had 10 mounts for 17 yards.
“I wish the field was more solid,” Carroll said.
White had two of the three Tampa Bay bags.
Just within two minutes of a first-half warning, White rushed across the unrestricted line and dropped Smith for a 10-yard loss at Seattle 10.
On the first ride in Seattle, Joe Tryon Soyinka beat rookie Abraham Lucas around the edge and dropped Smith for a 17-yard loss in third.
Devin White’s father died shortly before the team left for Munich.
“He’s still on the plane. To lose your dad before you get ready to go to Germany, to go out and keep playing, that tells us a lot about the guy,” Bowles said.
White said it was “unrealistic” to receive bad news.
“At the end of the day, I knew I had a job to do,” White said. “I just lowered my head and kept moving forward.”
He left Fortnite in the fourth quarter with a thigh injury. Bulls said the running back has a hip index and will be evaluated. Bewkes CB Zion McCollum was disqualified in the first half due to a concussion.
Seahawks coaching man Aaron Donkor of Germany led the team out of the tunnel carrying the “12” flag. Donkor is not on the 53-man list.
