Tom Brady passed an insane last-minute touchdown Sunday afternoon during the Tampa Bay Buccaneers vs. New York Jets game. With less than 20 seconds left in the game, Brady launched one to wide receiver Cyril Grayson. Grayson tumbled into the endzone with just 16 seconds left in the game’s final quarter.

It was a close call, but the referees ultimately awarded Tampa Bay the touchdown. With Brady’s game-saving move, Tampa Bay took the win over the New York jets, 28-24. The 33 yard TD has football fans raving online about how Brady displayed MVP behavior today. 

The Buccaneers dealt with some drama earlier in the game from (now former) wide receiver Antonio Brown, who left the field during the third quarter. Teammates attempted to calm down Brown but to no avail. The footballer took off his uniform–jersey, pads, undershirt, and all, before throwing the items into the stands. He ran across the endzone while both teams were on the field, and waved to fans on the way to the locker room. Buccaneers coach Bruce Arians says of Brown “I’m not talking about him. He’s no longer part of the Bucs.”

Fans Freak Out About Tom Brady’s TD

Despite the odd behavior and tension, Brady still brought the game home in a pretty spectacular way– and fans online are freaking out about how killer his last-minute move was. 

One fan pokes fun at the fact that Brady saved the game immediately following Antonio Brown’s behavior.  “Tom Brady came back on those sorry a** Jets. Lol Antonio Brown might’ve thrown his career away for nothing. Lmaooo,” the tweet reads. 

Another fan is speechless at Tom Brady’s hilarious post-game move. The fan tweeted, “Tom Brady just signed a ball for a player on the Jets’ team. The team he just beat in a game-winning drive with only seconds to spare. He signed a ball for a guy on the field that is a Jets player during sportsmanlike handshakes. He gave a loser his autograph right there and then.”

Many are giving props to Brady for reminding football fans that he really is the GOAT. 

“I know what Aaron Rodgers has done this season is remarkable, but what Tom Brady has done with this coaching staff is even more so. #MVP #GOAT

Finally, user @_BrianzHouston says Brady’s strategy continues to impress. “Tom Brady’s ability to come from behind and beat teams he had no business trailing will never stop being impressive”, he writes.
