Buccaneers Week 13 Top Performers vs. New Orleans Saints

Photo by Julio Aguilar/ The GOAT did GOAT things and made a whole lot of people look better than they are. The Bucs experienced a night so remarkable, both for good and bad, you’d be hard-pressed to sufficiently sum it up in a tidy lede, but I’ll try: Put Tom Brady in the Hall of Fame tomorrow. Down 13 with 3 minutes left in the game, Brady and the Buccaneers overcame terrible coaching decisions and generally lackluster execution to forge an inexplicable 17-16 comeback victory over the New Orleans Saints — the first home win against their division rival since...
