Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are in the doldrums and that proved to be even more so on Sunday when the team suffered a 21-3 loss to the Carolina Panthers.
Brady and the Buccaneers fell to 3-4 with the loss. It’s the first time Brady has fallen to 3-4 on the season since 2002, when he was in his second full season as a starting quarterback for the New England Patriots. This team finished 9-7 and missed the playoffs.

The seven-time Super Bowl champion’s frustrations boiled over in last week’s game against the Pittsburgh Steelers as the offense crumbled and the defense didn’t do enough to keep them at bay. The offense couldn’t get going against the Panthers either.
“Nobody feels good where we are,” Brady said after the game. “No one feels good about the way we played or what we’re doing. We’re all in it together and we have to get through it.”
He was 32 of 49 passing for 290 yards. He had a safe touchdown pass to Mike Evans early in the game, but the four-time Pro Bowl wide receiver dropped the pass. The team never recovered.

“It’s a game,” Brady said. “There are also a lot of other games. It’s never a game. It’s a lot of games.”
The team ran 66 games out of 11 practices and held the ball for more than 30 minutes, but only collected three points.
“We’re going to see how many people can handle adversity, and that’s about as bleak as it’s going to get right now,” Bucs coach Todd Bowles said after the game.
