Tom Brady makes rare mental error losing track of downs, Dodgers sweep Padres after decisive 12-3 victory, advance to NLCS
Tom Brady makes rare mental error losing track of downs during final drive, Bruce Arians claims otherwise
Brady apparently had to be told that Tampa Bay did indeed turn the ball over on downs

Tom Brady had a chance for a statement win in primetime with his new team on Thursday night, but it was not to be. Even more noteworthy, he appeared to forget what down it was during what would be the Tampa Bay Buccaneers' final play in the 20-19 loss they suffered to the Chicago Bears. Brady's final incomplete pass fell short and it appeared that he believed he would have one more down. 

Brady and the Bucs got possession at their own 25-yard line with 1:13 remaining in the fourth quarter following what would be the Bears' game-winning 38-yard field goal. After a 12-yard completion to Mike Evans picked up a first down on the very first play of the drive, Brady threw an incompletion to Evans, a four-yard pass to Ke'Shawn Vaughn and an incomplete pass to Rob Gronkowski before facing fourth down. On the Buccaneers' final play of the game -- a fourth & 6 -- Brady failed to connect with tight end Cameron Brate and the Bears took over on downs.

Unfortunately for Brady, he apparently thought he still had one play left and was instead facing a third-down situation when he failed to connect with Brate. The future Hall of Famer stood on the field for several moments before being told that the Buccaneers did indeed turn the ball over on downs.

Bruce Arians did his best to cover for Tom Brady after the veteran quarterback’s big mistake at the end of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ 20-19 loss to the Chicago Bears on Thursday night.

Brady made a huge mental mistake and forgot what down it was on the Bucs’ final offensive play of the game. He very clearly did not seem to realize the Bucs were on their fourth down when he threw deep and incomplete for Cameron Brate.

Arians, who is in his second season as the Bucs’ head coach, tried to cover for Brady after the game.



The post Bruce Arians covers for Tom Brady after big mistake appeared first on Larry Brown Sports.


Tampa Bay had 109 penalty yards, one TD in three trips to the red zone and on their final drive it looked as if Brady didn't know it was fourth down.

Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady said after Thursday's loss to the Bears that he should have been focusing on picking up the first down instead of gaining a bigger chunk of yards on what proved to be Tampa Bay's final play from scrimmage.

The Golden State Warriors-Houston Rockets rivalry died down a bit this season, but now Steve Kerr may be kicking it back up again.

The Golden State Warriors-Houston Rockets rivalry died down a bit this season, but now Steve Kerr may be kicking it back up again.

Kerr, the Warriors coach, appeared this week on The Athletic’s “TK Show.” When asked about how the team’s offense might change next season, Kerr got in a funny swipe at the Western Conference adversary Rockets.

“We’re not reinventing the wheel. We’re still gonna be the Warriors,” said Kerr, per Drew Shiller of NBC Sports Bay Area. “We’re not gonna all of a sudden turn into the Rockets — change our offense — and have one guy go high pick-and-roll 70 times a game … I think I would resign first.”
