Brady makes NFL history in Bucs' comeback

For almost four quarters Monday, the Buccaneers looked dead. But "almost" is the key word there, and Tom Brady is the chief reason

Despite trailing by 13 points in the final five minutes of a rematch with the Saints, Tampa Bay stormed back with Brady at the helm

pulling off a 17-16 victory to improve to .500 atop the NFC South

The quarterback's strong finish didn't just save the Bucs' night; it improved their path to a division title

It also made history, both personally for Brady and in NFL record books.

By guiding Tampa Bay to victory, the 45-year-old Brady secured his 44th career come-from-behind win in the fourth quarter or overtime

surpassing former Colts and Broncos great Peyton Manning for the most ever

Monday's win also marked Brady's second career 13-plus-point fourth-quarter comeback

after the QB famously led the Patriots from down 19 to beat the Falcons in Super Bowl LI, at the end of the 2017 season.
