The Tampa Bay Buccaneers Hall of Fame quarterback Tom Brady scorched the Atlanta Falcons this past Sunday. Considering the Buccaneers are 2-0 which is a great start to the season, they are on a ten-game win streak and have an overly impressive run of scoring 30 plus points in nine straight games which is an NFL record, per sources.
The Buccaneers are the first team in NFL history to score at least 30 points and win in nine straight games, including the playoffs.
◻️ Bucs* — 9 games (2020-21)

Tom Brady Chases Perfection
However, the defending Super Bowl Champions insist that they have yet to perform at the level they know they can reach. They believe there is still much more work to put in before they reach their peak form. The critics and analysts are in awe in the meantime at the outstanding numbers Brady and this Bucs offense continues to display on a weekly basis. Although, the Bucs don’t believe they have performed to their best the fact remains they beat the Falcons 48-25 on Sunday.
“I think we’ve got a lot to learn from,” coach Bruce Arians said. “It’s always better to learn from winning. I like the way we finished the game.”
Brady completed 24 of 38 passes without any interceptions and threw for 276 yards and five touchdowns. He had help this week by young defensive back Mike Edwards returning two of Tampa Bay’s three interceptions for a touchdown. This firepower the team possesses reminds many an awful a lot like the 2007 and 2010 New England Patriots.
“We were a little loose with the ball. Some penalties at different times knocked us out of some scoring drives. Some missed throws and missed reads. I certainly wish I had made a few better throws,” Brady said.“But it’s good to get the win. 2-0,” the seven-time Super Bowl winner added. “There’s a lot to build on.”
Matt Ryan Gives High Praise for the Buccaneer’s Offense
The opposing All-Pro quarterback Sunday evening Matt Ryan was highly impressed by the performance displayed by the Buccaneers offense. While disappointed in the outcome he expressed his respect for the team and their ability to find a way to win.
“Got it to a three-point game, and we had some momentum, really did. Credit to them, they changed the tide,” Ryan said . “They did a good job in the fourth quarter putting us away. I think there are things we can improve, there’s a lot of things we can correct.”
