Tom Brady shoots down rumors of his issues with Bruce Arians

Tom Brady looked a little more like the old Tom Brady in his Buccaneers' 27-24 loss to the Chiefs Sunday.

The quarterback did throw two more interceptions -- giving him 11 on the season (three shy of his career-high) -- but did finish passing for 345 yards to go along with three touchdown tosses.

But the question most really wanted answered after the QB's third straight home loss was in regards to rumors that he wasn't getting along with Tampa Bay head coach Bruce Arians.

“It’s just external noise that when you’re losing, that’s what you deal with, so I love playing for the guys that I play with, the coaches, the whole organization’s been unbelievable,” Brady told reporters when asked about the speculation. “I think we’ve just got to go out — I certainly gotta go out and do a better job the last four weeks of the year.”

Brady downplaying the drama isn't surprising, but it also does line up with a report from ESPN's Jeff Darlington prior to the Bucs' loss. Darlington said Brady is "OK" with how Arians approaches things, and is kind of "amused" by it.
