The Bucs escaped Foxborough, Mass., with a 19-17 win over the Patriots Sunday in what undoubtedly was an emotional game for quarterback Tom Brady.
Brady, who spent 20 years in New England, led his new team to victory while also making history. He eclipsed Drew Brees’ NFL career passing-yardage record and, with the win, now has a win over all 32 teams in the NFL.
Here’s what Twitter had to say after the Bucs’ victory:
Not sure when we’ll realize it, but we just witnessed history.

Imagine telling Tom Brady this is probably his last time playing at Gillette when he still has a minimum of ten seasons left.

“Now Tom Brady has won more games in Foxborough this year than the Patriots” lmao jeez

Mac Jones just went toe-to-toe in the pouring rain with Tom Brady and came 6 inches from taking home a W. Tough loss, the #Patriots aren’t there yet (may be a year or two away) but you walk away from that game extremely excited about the future at the quarterback position.

I will say this, the #Patriots have their franchise QB in Mac Jones. He most definitely outplayed Tom Brady tonight.

Patriots are 1-3 for the first time since 2001 — that season, Tom Brady and the Patriots both won their 1st Super Bowl ring. pic.twitter.com/DQZxPRla1e
