Tom Brady Sets NFL Fourth-Quarter Comeback Record

December 5th, 2022

Peyton Manning is famous for a lot of reasons, but one is because he was slightly ashamed of his career fourth-quarterback comeback record that he held until Tom Brady’s magic tonight.

Manning used to say that all those fourth-quarter comebacks, 43 to be exact, was a reminder of how badly in he played in the first three quarters of those games.

Tonight, Manning lost his record to Tom Brady, who rallied the Bucs to two touchdowns on their final two drives for a thrilling 17-16 Bucs win against the Slimy Saints. Brady now holds the NFL record with 44 wins after trailing in the fourth quarter of those games.

No, you won’t catch Brady feeling like his record doesn’t mean much. He was fired up after tonight’s win and praised the Bucs defense for giving him a chance, and he showed Todd Bowles love for punting on 4th-and-long early in the fourth quarter when Brady wanted to go for it.

Brady made a little more Bucs history tonight, too. He snapped the Bucs’ 69-game losing streak when trailing by eight or more points in the fourth quarter.

Tonight’s miraculous finish sure puts an extra spotlight on Bowles not trusting Brady to lead a Bucs comeback in the fourth quarter last week against the Browns.

Lesson learned. Hopefully.

    KEANU NEAL MVP OF THE GAME. Hit on Tayson Hill won that game.

  2. Rod Munch Says:

    Brady went to no huddle with 5:23 left, and scored 14 points.

    No huddle means Leftwich wasn’t there to screw up everything. Under Leftwich, they scored 3 points in the other 54:37 mins of the game.

    Why this worthless bum Leftwich still has a job tomorrow, it’s ridiculous.

    Also ridiculous is why the Bucs don’t just run a no huddle from shotgun the entire game.

    What you’re doing isn’t working. What is working is letting Brady do his job without a complete idiot derailing him.

  3. AmauryGuzman Says:

    Bowles still sucks and is spineless. Hope the players can overcome these guys but that’s very difficult to do.

  4. Vlad The Impaler Says:

    Sadly Brady will be a 49er soon.
    Thanks Leftwich!

  5. BucsBro Says:

    PLEASE, for the love of all that’s holy, start using the hurry-up offense more so that we don’t have to pull these games out at the end.

    Come on, Byron!

    Great comeback, GOAT!

  6. Anonymous Says:

    Did wanna throw a pick lol

  7. Vlad The Impaler Says:

    Rod, you’re exactly right.
    It pisses me off that the Glazers value woke more than winning

  8. Vlad The Impaler Says:

    Bowles is a good DC and COULD be a good HC if he was more emotional and led from the front….and played to win (instead of not lose)

  9. Pewter Power Says:

    Great bailout Brady to make up for the missed throws early on…. Bryon leftwich is still hot garbage. Scripted plays work well after that he has nothing until Brady goes no huddle.

  10. Zzbucs Says:

    Guzman as always your comments suck!!
    Never nothing positivé to say……
    You are a disgrace of a fan…….

  11. Vlad The Impaler Says:

    Leftwich is a worthless and dangerous liability

  12. Curse of Gruden Says:

    If Bowles the Clown runs Brady off, it looks like Jameis might be available.

  13. Tbbucs3 Says:


    Leftwhich is still calling the plays when the Bucs go no huddle

  14. Buc4evr Says:

    Agree Rod we should have been in no huddle all game. The defense has no way to adjust or make substitutions.

  15. Carey Says:

    The Neal hit made up for the blown coverage, TD earlier in the game. Brady saves coaches asses again.

  16. Vlad The Impaler Says:

    I highly highly doubt that

  17. Vlad The Impaler Says:

    (That Lefty calls the no huddle plays)

  18. RSJCheapSeats Says:

    What a pathetic loser fan you halve to be after that game to come in and bitch about the coaching. I mean what a bunch of loser comments.


    Of course if you actually went to a game you would be punched in the mouth.
    But that would mean you could actually afford tickets.

    Really pathetic.

  19. Vlad The Impaler Says:

    You can’t go no huddle for the whole game, and Brady cant be the OC and QB. It’s impossible even for the GOAT.
    We desperately need a real OC.
    Promote Clyde

    #Fire Leftwich

  20. Tbbucs3 Says:

    There’s a little thing called headsets in the NFL….Brady is absolutely not calling his own plays….he can check out of plays but the runs being ran are called by Leftwhich

  21. RSJCheapSeats Says:

    And of course, some of the comments are from a certain whiney-ass public figure.

    Rod Munch you have no idea what game you are watching. You just want to hate BL – what a pathetic loser you are.

  22. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    What a hit by Neal on Hill……Hill is a tough guy but he met his match…..

    Our defense played very well and has for many games this year……

  23. Rod Munch Says:

    Tbbucs3 – You can tell Leftwich isn’t calling the no huddle plays simply by the fact every first down isn’t a run up the middle for 1 yard.

  24. unbelievable Says:

    Not sure if Clyde would really be the answer, who knows.

    We’re stuck with this staff. It is what it is.

  25. Adrnagy Says:

    I had to come back. Joe pousy. Talks siht about bowles go ahead. Reality is you don’t know football. Don’t be all punp up about Bucs going into playoffs. Don’t watch. Loser

    You can’t go no huddle for the whole game


    Teams all throughout history have gone no huddle the entire game, in fact there are entire offenses created around that very idea.

    It’s not 1975, it’s 2022, you don’t need to waste every 1st down running it up the middle.

    Also, no, Leftwich is not calling every play in the no huddle, Tom is reading the field, making adjustments on the fly, directing the action himself.

    I’ll take my chances with a random fan out of the stands. Just hand them Arians playbook and say pick a random play. That would give the Bucs at least 4320.52% better shot at winning vs Leftwich.

  28. Adrnagy Says:

    All you lusors in here talking shot about coaching sock

  29. Adrnagy Says:

    Only lusors In here.

  30. Thunder Says:

    Hey TBbucks3, is 3 your IQ? Haha, you Brady hating moron. How you feeling right now? Hahaha

  31. Adrnagy Says:

    Rod your the biggest lusor along with tbfan

  32. Rod Munch Says:

    If Bowles wasn’t such a stupid, cowardly, gutless wonder last week and used his timeouts, the Bucs win that game, and they’re 7-5 right now, and on a 4 game winning streak, and people are lot more exciting about things.

  33. Thunder Says:

    Rod Munch you are the man!

  34. EEK Says:

    Saints had this game in the bag

    They dropped a couple of passes that would have ended it

    Hard to feel like this team is going anywhere

    So many 3 and outs it was mind numbing

  35. NEfan Says:

    Oneiltobrady, rsbj, ttbsuc, zzbut to ALL you haters, take that!!! Ttbsuc, Brady calls the no huddle plays, all down on the field, it’s obvious you never played in a real football game. After the timeouts, that’s when you saw Brady look at his arm band. Who are the washed up LOSERS now, see above!!!

  36. NEfan Says:

    EEK, Belichick always coached, it’s a 60 minute game, play until the whistle.

    Can we talk about the Cleveland missed time outs again? Should be 7-5.

  37. NEfan Says:

    Did I hear that right, Smith is the most penalized player in the league? I swear he has money on these games.

  38. AmauryGuzman Says:

    Lol at the clowns here who get all excited because Brady bailed out this lousy coaching staff

    Brady and these players won’t be able to overcome this lousy coaching staff . That’s the truth.

  39. AmauryGuzman Says:

    Another thing about this defense is that they give so much cushion to the wideouts. That’s on Bowles as well. He’s still in control of this defense. It’s his scheme.

  40. Hunter's Crack Pipe Says:

    Tbbucs3 Says:
    “Leftwhich is still calling the plays when the Bucs go no huddle.”

    Probably only when the clock stops. Incomplete passes, out-of-bounds plays, etc. You can see when he goes to the arm band to decipher the call from the sideline. He’s not doing so most of the time during the hurry-up.

  41. Hunter's Crack Pipe Says:

    NEfan Says:
    “Did I hear that right, Smith is the most penalized player in the league?”

    Yup. During the broadcast, they said DS76 has the most holding calls this season, and has the most overall penalties in the league since he was drafted.

  42. firethecannons Says:

    Donovan Smith needs to pay for these penalties, each one after a certain amount he needs to pay for, we save up the money and buy his replacement

  43. Rod Munch Says:

    Hunter’s Crack Pipe – you are correct sir, plus Brady is more likely to make adjustments even on plays that Leftwich calls since it’s crunch time.

    The downside of Brady coming from Belichick is that even Brady isn’t used to questioning the coaching. Brady is a robot who is meant to run the plays he’s given to perfection. Brady has never ever had to deal with coaching this bad, and he seems reluctant to over rule the idiot calling plays, so we only see glimpses of what Brady really wants to be doing out there.

  44. Jay Wolf Says:

    Yeah i have to agree, Leftwich has been a huge embarrassing failure. Bowles will be soft, considering he will learn from his mistakes (i.e. Last week vs Browns).

    Byron must go though.

  45. Jay Wolf Says:

    Bowles will be *alright lol. Not soft haha

  46. JimmyfromNY Says:

    Listen, the Brady trolls are not Bucs fans they’re fans of other teams who troll different websites writing disparaging things about Brady. , they are not Bucs fans their , fans of other team who troll different websites . I already told you they usually 50 to 60 years old 300 pounds with high blood pressure, gray hair and angry ,?most probably divorced and have a domestic assault and battery on there record. Years of losing to him in devastating fashion like last night, has caused him to think about him all day , long, sleepless nights , it’s a beautiful thing!!

  47. OLDE pfart Says:

    Damn! I gave up with 7 minutes to play and took the dog out for a walk….went to bed….what a pleasant surprise to see the GOAT completed another miracle…..i bet he called the plays ….and I noted they have finally started running the right side of center…..about time… used Otten a few times…..maybe so m e hope left for the rest of the season????

  48. D-Rok Says:

    Yet another record attributed to Brady’s name. He will, and always does, give credit to the team though, as he can’t win without his team.

    That was a great comeback win by THIS TEAM. I’ll take it!!!

    GO BUCS!!!

  49. BucFanforLife Says:

    Does anyone think we’re gonna a threat to the Eagles, Cowboys, etc. once the playoffs start? Who cares if we get into the playoffs or not, it’s gonna be a bloodbath once we’re there. Time to rebuild again, hell the Saints suck and still would have won in our house if not for luck and effort during that last quarter.
