Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady briefly voiced his frustration over his team’s week 10 loss to a Washington Football team led by Taylor Heinicke.

Brady lasted a minute and 43 seconds on the podium with the media, per Jenna Laine from ESPN. He even urged the media to “do it quick” and his comment in response to Laine said it all.

“I love to win,” said Brady.

Tampa Bay didn’t, as Brady threw two interceptions in a 29:19 loss. Heinicke, an undrafted quarterback in 2015, defeated Brady with an 81.2% completion rate, 256 yards, and a touchdown. Media experts and Fans likewise, Brady toasted on Twitter amid losing to a team and quarterback whom the Bucs barely beat in last season’s wild card round.

“We just never really played on our terms,” ​​Brady told the media during his November 14 press conference. “Played the whole game from behind. You played a good game. You had a good plan. “

“Not a great football day for us,” added Brady. “No matter who you play against… we also have a lot of self-inflicted mistakes. We have to eliminate these and see if we can go out and make the moves there. “

For Heinicke it was important who he played and won against on Sunday. He got emotional and called it a dream to win against a team led by Brady.

“It’s the moment I dreamed of last year when I wasn’t playing,” Heinicke said via Megan Plain by WTKR3. “I always said to myself that if I got another chance to play, I would go out and do something great.”

Brady failed to downplay two interceptions in the first quarter that gave Washington a world of momentum and led to a 13-0 deficit.

“We started with the ball. You got away with it, ”said Brady

Brady tried to leave immediately before being asked another question, but he eventually snaked out of the interrogation room when asked about pre-snap penalties.

“Can’t do a play,” said Brady.

In total, the Bucs committed six penalties for 43 yards.

Brady bounced back on the picks to throw two touchdowns in the second half, finishing 220 yards after a 23-34 pass. Cameron Brate and Mike Evans caught the touchdowns, drawing the Bucs within 23-19.

The Tampa Bay defense failed to make a final stop and got the ball back.

“We have to get better,” said Brady.

For a second game in a row, the Bucs lost to a team led by a backup quarterback.

Tampa Bay fell to a Trevor Siemian-led New Orleans Saints 36-27 squad in Week 8. Both in that game and in Washington, Brady gave the Bucs a chance to recover late. In New Orleans, the Bucs defense gave up a Saints field goal, forcing Brady and the offense to regroup – resulting in a pick of six. In Washington, the Bucs defense could not make a last stop against Heinicke and Co.

The Bucs also failed to deliver after the bye week, the complete opposite of last season when the team took eight straight wins to claim the Lombardi Trophy. While there were only four weeks of regular season action left after the bye in 2020, this time the Bucs have seven more games ahead of them.

The Bucs can put their Sunday defeat aside and focus on the first of the next seven competitions as quickly as Brady released himself from the interview room.

“They all count the same,” Brady told the media.

The Tampa Bay defense failed to make a final stop and got the ball back.
