Tom Brady noted one difference between some Patriots teams, Buccaneers


Tom Brady and his Tampa Bay Buccaneers will play their third straight road playoff game this Sunday at Green Bay for the right to represent the NFC in the Super Bowl.

Unlike the Patriots in some years, the Buccaneers have been excellent on the road this year, winning eight straight away from home.

Some of Brady's Patriots teams really struggled away from home, like in 2018 when they were 3-5 on the road, compared to 8-0 at home, and then 4-4 on the road in 2013 when they were also 8-0 at home.

Prior to this year, Brady was 3-4 in road playoff games.

“We’ve been pretty good on the road all year outside of the first game and the Chicago game," Brady said via Zoom Wednesday. "For one reason or another, we’ve just done a good job. Some years it’s been like that. I’ve been a part of other teams where it wasn’t quite like that. Let’s keep that streak going – that would be pretty sweet. Let’s get another one."

The Buccaneers blew the Packers out in Week 6, but Brady knows that won't matter this week.

"We’re going to be challenged to get it because we’re going up against a great football team," he said. "Playing on the road, it’s about good football, execution, communication, all the fundamentals, the blocking, tackling, throwing – all those things. It’s a great environment. This is one of the coolest stadiums in the league to play in. I know they’re excited, we’ll be excited, and it will make for a great football game.”
