At that time, Tom Brady and his gang defeated Patrick Mahomes’ team. The latter retaliated by throwing three touchdown passes at Raymond James Stadium.
The 27-year-old center finished the day with 23 completions on 37 attempts for 249 yards. His targets for majors were Travis Kelce, Jody Fortson and Clyde Edwards-Helaire, who also scored a touchdown with his legs.
For his part, Brady maintained a 74.5% success rate with his arm and had 367 yards and three six-point passes. Twice he found Mike Evans in the pay zone, back after serving a one-game suspension.
The defeat of the Buccaneers (2:2) can also be explained by the two turnovers lost by the crowd favorites at the beginning of the game. From the first kick, Rachaad White gave the Chiefs the ball (3-1). Brady did the same before the end of the first quarter. Both times, visitors took the opportunity to collect valuable points.
