NFL superstar must have imagined it very differently!
The first game with his new team Tampa Bay Buccaneers loses the best quarterback in league history. Against the New Orleans Saints around quarterback superstar Drew Brees (41) Brady and Co. have to admit defeat 23:34.
The 43-year-old got off to a dream start into the new NFL season. The superstar ends the first drive with a touchdown. The Buccaneers take an early 7-0 lead.
In the end, it’s still not enough for victory. “I’ve lost a lot of games in my career. Obviously I made too many mistakes today, I will focus on what I have to do – and I have to do a better job, ”said Brady after the opening break with his new team.
Brady, who moved to Tampa after 20 seasons and six Super Bowl wins with the New England Patriots, finished the game with 23 successful passes in 36 attempts for 239 yards and two touchdowns thrown. To make matters worse: the shortened preparation due to Corona.
Things are going better for Brady’s ex-team. His successor Cam Newton is celebrating a dream start!
The quarterback wins with the New England Patriots at the league opener against the Miami Dolphins (21:11)!
Newton (bright yellow suit before the game, gold chain on the field) runs two of the Patriots touchdowns himself.
The rushing touchdowns are also a statement from Newton: Look, I’m fit again after my injury and can still run with the ball!
Jaguars shock the Colts
The Jacksonville Jaguars and Washington Football Team win their opening game – a real shock! The two teams are among the worst teams in the NFL.
The Jaguars beat the Indianapolis Colts thanks to three touchdown passes from quarterback Gardner Minshew (final score 27:20).
Embarrassing Philadelphia! The Eagles spoil a 17-0 lead against Washington. Best man in the team from the US capital: Running Back Peyton Barber (2 touchdowns).
Again, there were protests against racism and police violence before the games!
Some teams stayed in the dressing room during the national anthem – for example the Green Bay Packers. The Seahawks and Falcons use the kickoff to kneel down.
