Tom Brady puts up monster stat line for Tampa Bay during huge first half vs Detroit
Tom Brady must have heard his critics talking about his arm this past week because he has put on quite a show so far on Saturday.
In the Buccaneers’ first half against the Detroit Lions, Brady went 22-for-27 with 348 yards and four touchdown passes as Tampa is up 34-0 at the break.

Brady also completed those four touchdown passes to four different players. Wide receivers Mike Evans, Chris Godwin, and Antonio Brown each have one, as does tight end Rob Gronkowski.
Evans actually leads all Tampa Bay players in yards receiving with 120. Godwin is right behind him with 84 and they’re set up for more going into the second half.
Before Brady threw those four touchdown passes though, he tied an NFL record for the most career starts for an NFL quarterback. He’s now at 298 and is surely going to pass Brett Favre next Sunday when Tampa plays again.
Brady has also regained control of the No. 1 spot on the NFL’s all-time list for passing touchdowns as Drew Brees missed considerable time due to injury. Hopefully Brady can build his lead down the stretch.
