Buccaneers vs. Ravens: Tom Brady becomes most sacked quarterback in NFL history as Tampa Bay Buccaneers suffer third straight loss




CNN

Tom Brady is used to setting new records but he wouldn’t want this one.

The 45-year-old became the most-hit quarterback in NFL history in the Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ 27-22 loss to the Baltimore Ravens on Thursday Night Football.

Brady was sacked twice late in the first half to first tie and then break the record held by Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger.

Honestly, it’s no surprise that Brady is the most sacked quarterback in NFL history since he’s been in the league for over two decades and it doesn’t diminish his amazing legacy in the sport.

Perhaps more troubling for the seven-time Super Bowl champion is that the Bucs have lost three straight games, the first time in Brady’s career since 2002.

It marks a new low in a difficult season for both Brady and the Buccaneers.

“I don’t think you can erase what happened the last eight weeks,” a disappointed Brady, who threw a touchdown in the loss, told reporters after the game.

“We have to dig deep, see what we are about, come to work, try to improve and give ourselves a better chance to win.”

Despite a nightmare season since coming out of retirement in March, Brady has reaffirmed his commitment to the Bucs amid rumors that a second retirement was imminent.

His performances on the field, however, haven’t been what we’ve come to expect from arguably the greatest quarterback of all time, but it’s not helping his team.

Between struggling relationships with its offensive weapons, a porous offensive line and a disorganized running game, the problems are mounting for the franchise.

They led 10-3 at the end of the first half on Thursday but the Ravens took complete control in the second.

“We just didn’t play well enough to win,” Brady added.

On the other side, Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson continued his streak of strong performances, throwing for two touchdowns and running for nearly 50 yards in a victory that improves Baltimore’s record to 5-3.
