Tom Brady throws miracle touchdown pass to end first half of NFC Championship Game
Tom Brady caught the Packers sleeping to end the first half.
With six seconds remaining before the break, the Bucs found themselves just out of field goal range. Coach Bruce Arians dialed up something of a hail marry, and Brady threw a perfect pass to Scotty Miller in the corner of the end zone.
The pass, combined with a questionable scheme choice from Green Bay, resulted in one of the more improbable touchdowns we’ve seen all season. The Bucs now take a 21-10 lead into the second half.
Here’s the play:

Brady completed 13-of-22 passes for 202 yards and two touchdowns in the first half.
Former Penn State receiver Chris Godwin led all players in receiving with 99 yards in the first half. That includes a 50-yarder that set up Tampa’s second touchdown of the day.
Brady and the Bucs entered this game as four-point underdogs.
