The New York Jets suffered a heartbreaking loss against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday after veteran quarterback Tom Brady led a 93-yard drive in the final minutes of the game for a 28-24 victory.
The Jets took the lead early on with a pair of touchdowns by star wide receiver Braxton Berrios. New York continued its momentum with Ty Johnson's 1-yard run to improve the Jets’ lead by two scores but all that mattered was Brady’s 33-yard pass to Cyril Grayson with 15 seconds left to win the game.
Ultimately, the Jets played one of their most aggressive games of the season but lost it all on a bad play call late in the fourth quarter when Zach Wilson attempted a quarterback sneak on fourth-and-2 at the 7-yard line.
The Bucs defense stuffed the Jets, turning the ball over with 2:12 left – a dangerous amount of time for Brady.
"Tom did a great job of taking what they were giving us," head coach Bruce Arians said after the game. "I was really happy for Cyril. He’s worked his a– off and is really coming through for us."
Despite the win, the Bucs did suffer one significant loss.
Arians said after the game that wide receiver Antonio Brown is "no longer a Buc" after undressing on the field before storming off to the locker room during the third quarter.
"He is no longer a Buc. Alright, that’s the end of the story. Let’s talk about the guys that went out there and won the game."
Brady seemed to be sensitive about Brown’s meltdown, telling reporters during his post-game presser: "I think everyone should be compassionate and empathetic toward some very difficult things."
