Tom Brady On Pace For 48 Touchdowns And 14 Interceptions

December 5th, 2021

Heinous second-quarter gaffe aside, Tom Brady was an absolute beast today in Atlanta, extending his career record against the Falcons to 10-0.

And now Brady is racking up more historic numbers. His four touchdowns today make him the Buccaneers’ single-season franchise leader. He’s got 34 TDs, passing Jameis Winston’s 33 in 2019.

Brady also is on pace for 48 touchdowns and 14 interceptions for the season. Brady only has eclipsed 40 TDs once in his career. That was his historic 50 during the 2020 season.

Overall, Brady’s final line was  38-for-51 for 368 yards.

The NFL day isn’t over, but Brady entered Sunday’s action leading the league in pass attempts, completions and touchdowns. Joe’s confident he’ll make it to Week 14 comfortably atop those three NFL perches.

The Bucs came out throwing and throwing and throwing with their superstar 44-year-old QB.

Smart move.

    He is throwing a lot shorter lately.

    What is the record for number of completions in a season?

    Is he threatening that one?

  2. Lesko_Brandon Says:

    Great game Bucs !

  3. Lesko_Brandon Says:

    Brady for MVP !!!

  4. Rod Munch Says:

    You don’t win by scoring points, you win by protecting the football, and we can’t win if Brady keeps turning the ball over.

  5. David Says:

    Gino… He’s growing shorter because defenses have 4 to 5 backs playing 7 to 12 yards off the ball and backing up. It’s basically a Tampa 2 or cover 3. They are refusing to allow the deep ball anymore.

  6. David Says:

    Yeah, Brady has had some INT’s lately that should not have happened. Need to clean that up.

  7. unbelievable Says:

    Didn’t he already have 40 TDs last season?

    Stafford had 727 in 2012.

    Including today, Brady, if he plays 17 games, is on pace for… 719…

    If you include the playoffs, he had 50 TDs.

  10. Wesley Says:

    Coulda had more, missed a handful of open receivers.

  11. geno711 Says:

    Munch, I think you did pass attempts not completions.

    Not hating the shorter passing. Whatever works. Just have noted a clear shift in what Brady in some of the design the last few weeks.

  12. Jmarkbuc Says:

    How many players that we had injured in garbage time get these players off the field

  13. DavidBigBucFan99 Says:

    Everybody misses a handful of receivers

  14. DavidBigBucFan99 Says:

    Wow Davus with 2 bad plays at end of game

  15. DoooshLaRue Says:

    Only 3 penalties for 15 yards today.

    Donnie had 10 of those yards.

  16. Dew Says:

    Lots of near heart attacks at the end of the game with the spread being 10.5 points

    Sorry, you’re correct, I misread what you said.

    I’ll run the numbers in a second… I’m interested also.

  18. unbelievable Says:

    @Rod- yea my point was Joe is saying he is now the single season touchdown leader with 34 this year.

    But he had 40 last year during regular season.

    So he’s already the franchise leader for single season TDs…

  19. cmurda Says:

    He sure was. Brady was great. Nice seeing some nice plays to ME. We are this good and there’s actually room for more chemistry with TB12 and ME13. That’s really good news for us as Bucs fans.

  20. Rod Munch Says:

    Pass completions single season, Drew Brees, 471, 2016

    Brady is on pace for… 491…

    So yeah, he’d set the record, take another one from Brees which would be great.

  21. SufferingSince76 Says:

    Dude was 38 of 51 for 368 and 4 TDs and you’re bitching. Unbelievable!

  22. Rod Munch Says:

    unbelievable – Yeah, I was just pointing out he had 50 TDs for us just last year, including the playoffs. 50 TDs is an amazing number, and he might break that during this regular season. I didn’t notice Joe’s goof.

  23. Buczilla Says:

    Good win and it’s a blessing to have a competent qb.

  24. JGhotier Says:

    Brady had 40 TD’s last year so he was ALREADY the single-season record holder for TD passes. His 34 this season did not pass him….his 34, 35, 36, 37, 39, 39 and 40th did that. So I’m confused by your 2nd paragraph here Joe…

  25. rriddler Says:

    “You don’t win by scoring points” Congratulations on the stupidest comment of the week.

    I remember all those glorious wins when the Bucs were shut out .

  26. Rod Munch Says:

    Brady is also on pace for 5342 yards.

    Manning’s record is 5,477, so Brady needs to pick up the pace slightly, wave off those awful Leftwich runs up the gut.

  27. JimmyJack Says:

    Brilliance by Tom Brady today. Elite throws all day. The 2nd TD to Gronk, the one to Brate and the little floater to Lenny. Unreal throws!! And amazing hands by all our recievers today to finish.

    And just think, Tom missed that big play to Evans or we probably put up 40. But Ill take the 30 and the win.

  28. JimmyJack Says:

    If the record is in site after these next 2 home games Brady outta go for it. We can easily destroy the Panthers 52-9 twice. And we could easily destroy the Jets 66-14.

  29. Bob in valrico Says:

    Brady did a great job of mixing it up and getting at least 5 receivers involved.
    very good protection allowed Brady also allowed Brady to pick apart the defense.

  30. unbelievable Says:

    I have no problem with running the ball, I just hate when it’s so predictable.

    There are at least 5 plays every week where it’s so obvious we are lining up to run that every single person watching the game knows what’s coming, and the D always stuff us.

    That said, our commitment to the run game is the reason we beat Indy last week. (Along with crucial turnovers by the defense). We need the run game for sure. And we need to use RoJo more.

  31. Thomas Edrington Says:

    Actually, TB12 had FIVE touchdown passes — four for the Bucs, one for the Falcons…..

    I was actually joking, I don’t care how many turnovers he has so long as we score more points and win. I’m old school in that I don’t care if turnovers happen so long as you’re being aggressive and scoring points.

  33. Rod Munch Says:

    Godwin on pace for…
    109 rec, 1265 yards, 7 TDs

    For those asking about Mike — he dominates in home games, and with 5 games left, he’s got 3 home games to get to his 1000 yards and probably 16 TDs.

  34. Rod Munch Says:

    BTW, I posted this by accident in the other thread, but I said ‘for those asking about Mike’, because he didn’t feel like he did much today, but Mike had 7 catches for 99 yards. That might be one of the most quiet 100 yard days I can ever remember.

  35. Dirty Bucs Says:

    Joe- Open a complaints department thread for all of the “fans” who are watching their team go 9-3, with an amazing QB, and still aren’t happy with the way we are winning. *Insert Eye roll*

  36. Chad Says:

    Brady had 40 Touchdowns last year

  37. Youngbucs Says:

    Lol joe erased last year

    You don’t win by scoring points, you win by protecting the football, and we can’t win if Brady keeps turning the ball over.

    Happy to see turnovers matter to you now.

  39. Listnfrmafar Says:

    43 actually he ran for 3.

  40. Chris K Says:


  41. AMI_Chris Says:

    I just hope Brady’s arm doesn’t fall off. And Lenny needs a decent back-up. If RoJo can’t be the guy, let’s give Vaughn a try.

  42. Coburn Says:

    That Brady pick 6 was stupid coaching. Nothing good happens trying to force the ball with 22 seconds left in the half Nd already up 10. It’s a good thing we are such a clearly better team or could have been the difference

  43. Vsyl Says:

    I really can’t believe there are people dissing brady. Sometimes I think we deserve brady going somewhere else and we go back to being a loser franchise.

  44. Rod Munch Says:

    Youngbucs — Dude, I said that mockingly. I was mocking the idiots obsessed with turnovers. Who thought Mike Glennon was a good QB because he didn’t turn it over. It didn’t matter you lose 24-3, at least you didn’t turn the ball over.

  45. Rod Munch Says:

    Listnfrmafar – Oh, you thought I said that when I said we can’t win with Brady turning the ball over that I was being serious. No, I was mocking the morons who think it’s better to score 12 points a game so long as you don’t turn it over.

  46. adam from ny Says:

    joe X two…

    tell tommy he is on pace for 48 and he will be pissed…

    that man wants a cool 50…

    a burger…with cheese & avacado…

    and last year he had 10 in the playoffs…so this year he will want a dozen…

    actually a baker’s dozen (13)


  47. Rod Munch Says:

    Brady at home has been insane when it comes to passing, and he’s got 3 of the next 5 at home. However next week is against Buffalo, which is one of the top defenses in football, although they’ve been putting up klunkers lately. Tomorrow night, Pats vs Bills, will be big for the Bucs I think. The Bills can’t lose against the Pats and then lose again vs the Bucs – if they lose that Pats game, their season is on the line in the Bucs game, while the Bucs are comfortably in the playoffs.

  48. stpetebucsfan Says:

    I know it’s been said on other threads but while Brady is the GOAT and Gronk and Evans may be future hall of famers its’ this offensive line that is blowing my mind.

    I haven’t seen a line play like this. Perhaps those premier Cowboy lines of a few years ago but we need to think of a nickname for these guys.

    Our OL deserves a push to get some guys their proper respect.

  49. Rod Munch Says:

    stpetebucsfan – These haven’t exactly been top flight defenses they’ve been playing. Lets see the o-line give a great performance vs the Bills.

    To be clear, I think they are a great o-line, but I’m not putting them up with the top guys because they’re not great at run blocking. Personally, I don’t care about run blocking, so long as they protect Brady, but to be all-time, they need to be able to do everything.

  50. Eddie Marz Says:

    Ron Munch I agree with you, they’re not going to win in the playoffs throwing pick sixes. But that play was on the coaching staff. Up by ten deep in your territory, late in the half. There was absolutely no need for the to take unnecessary chances. Stupid play that NEVER should have been called. GO BUCS!
