Tom Brady is looking strong early in the NFC Championship Game as he hopes to punch his ticket to another Super Bowl.
In the opening quarter of Sunday’s game between Tampa Bay and Green Bay, Brady led the Buccaneers to a touchdown drive on their first possession of the game. The Bucs drove 66 yards on 9 plays to take an early 7-0 advantage.
Brady hit receiver Mike Evans in the end zone from 15 yards out on a 3rd-and-7 to cap the drive with a touchdown. Tampa Bay converted on all 3rd down tries to get the score.

Not a bad start for the Bucs.
Brady is looking to make a 10th Super Bowl appearance in his incredible NFL career. So far, all 9 appearances have come with the New England Patriots, but this is his first season with the Buccaneers.
To get the win, Brady will have to overcome Green Bay’s home field advantage.
