Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ Tom Brady redeemed himself after a catching the ball from the sideline on an incomplete pass during the Philadelphia Eagles game on Sunday. He previously dropped a crucial pass against the Eagles four years prior in Super Bowl LII. Now that he caught a pass, he won’t let the Eagles hear the end of it.
Brady took to his Instagram to share his excitement. He posted a video of him catching the ball. He wrote under the post, “Look at the smile when I caught it, I love you Philly fans.” The clip has since then gone viral on Twitter, which included one of his Instagram comments, “Finally a catch against the Eagles.”
However, it’s to be noted Brady has actually caught important passes in his career before. He made a catch in 2001, 2015 and 2018. Two of those passes went for first downs. He also had three career catches for 65 yards.
In his documentary “Man in the Arena”, Brady recapped his memory of dropping the catch in Super Bowl LII. Brady and the New England Patriots lost that game 41-33. Brady said in the film, “Out of all the moments for me to make a play to help us win, that was the one that in that game I really look back on,”
While talking to Jim Gray on his podcast “Let’s Go!” on Monday, Brady expressed his disappointment in catching the one that didn’t matter. He told “I caught the one that didn’t matter, I finally caught a pass against the Eagles. Redemption. I don’t even want to talk about it anymore. It’s about time.” Maybe he will get the one that matters in the near future.
