It isn’t typically that Tom Brady completely forgets one of many essential guidelines of soccer, however that seems to be what occurred on Monday evening in Tampa.
With simply over 12 minutes left to play within the fourth quarter, the Buccaneers had been dealing with a third-and-10. On the play, Brady lined up in shotgun formation and after taking the snap, he tried to shortly throw the ball to Mike Evans, however the ball by no means made it to Evans as a result of it bought batted down on the line of scrimmage.
The twist right here is that the ball truly bought batted straight again to Brady, WHO TRIED TO THROW THE BALL AGAIN. As quickly as Brady caught the batted move, he put it again in his proper hand and threw it to Evans once more. This time, the move made it to the Buccaneers receiver for an 8-yard acquire, solely the 8-yard acquire did not depend since you’re not allowed to throw two ahead passes on one play.
Let’s watch the entire thing unfold.
Because the second throw was unlawful, the Buccaneers had been penalized for throwing an unlawful ahead move. Nonetheless, the Rams determined to say no the penalty, which apparently created some confusion for the official scorekeeper. At first, the play went within the books as a completion from Brady to Brady for a 9-yard loss.
Nonetheless, the official scorebook was later modified and the move is now being counted as an 8-yard reception for Evans because the Rams declined the penalty.
The Buccaneers ended up punting on fourth down.
As for Brady, there should be one thing about evening video games that messes together with his thoughts, as a result of that is the second time we have seen him concerned in a bizarre play in primetime. Again in Week 5, Brady appeared to neglect what down it was — ON FOURTH DOWN — in opposition to the Bears and the error proved to be expensive, as a result of Tampa Bay ended up dropping 20-19.
As for everybody else, if in case you have Brady or Evans in your fantasy group, you are going to wish to make certain to see if the rating from this play will get modified between now and Tuesday morning, particularly if you happen to’re in a detailed sport.
