It was Tom Brady who ultimately won out in the first elimination duel between him and Drew Press. The 40-year-old midfielder led the Tampa Bay Buccaneers to a 30-20 win over the New Orleans Saints Sunday night at Superdome.
20-20 draw after three quarters, Brady for the first time allowed striker Ryan Sokop to put his team forward with a 36-yard field goal.
In the next streak, Devin White intercepted a shot from Brees in the Saints District. The Super Bowl Six Ring Bearer wouldn’t miss such an opportunity. After four matches, Brady crossed the goal line himself with the ball in his hand.
Then victory was confirmed by another theft defense “Bucs”.
The 43-year-old Pivot finished his game by completing 18 throws out of 33 he tried to do at 199 yards and two touchdowns through the air.
For his part, the Brees had 19 passes of 34 passes for 134 yards, one main and three interceptions. Note that Reserve Soldier James Winston also delivered a touchdown pass for the losers in this duel.
Remember that during the regular season, the Saints were twice as good as their competitors.
