Tom Brady lit up the Las Vegas Raiders defense throwing for 369 yards, 4 passing touchdowns and one rushing touchdown, as the Tampa Bay Buccaneers have beaten the Vegas Raiders 45-20.
The Buccaneers quarterback entered Sunday’s game three touchdowns behind Drew Brees for the all-time record for passing touchdowns. He threw his fourth of the day with 3:08 remaining to ice Tampa Bay’s 45-20 victory over the Raiders.
It gives Brady 559 touchdowns for his career.
More importantly, it was career (regular-season) win No. 224 for Brady.
Brady completed 33 of 45 passes for 369 yards, four touchdowns and rushed for another score. Slot receiver Scotty Miller led the team in receiving, as he caught six passes for 109 yards and a touchdown. Brady certainly wasn’t scared to spread the wealth around either, as he completed passes to nine different receivers and all four of his touchdowns went to different wideouts as well.
Defense took a while to adjust after being down 10-0 to the Raiders but once the offense started to clique after the first few drives the Buccaneers never looked back and maintained the lead the rest of the game although the Raiders pulled within 4 pts at one point.
LB Devin White had a huge game getting 20 tackles, 2 for loss and three sacks, getting pressure on Derek Carr all game, Safety Antoine Winfield Jr. got his first career interception of his NFL career which lead to a RB Ronald Jones II touchdown two plays later.
Bucs will be facing the New York Giants on Monday Night Football come next week and will look to continue to hold that NFC South division lead as the Buccaneers improve to 5-2 on the season with the win over the Raiders once again 45-20.
