With no sign of his thumb injury, veteran Tom Brady teamed up with linebacker Leonard Fournett to fuel the Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ 28-22 victory over the Philadelphia Eagles on Thursday in the NFL.
The Bucs, the reigning Super Bowl champions, overcame injured cornerback Richard Sherman in the first quarter to score a win that puts him on a record five wins and one loss.
Brady, 44, led Tampa with another strong performance that appeared to have recovered from the thumb injury he sustained in Sunday’s win over Miami.
The quarterback threw two 23-yard drops to OJ Howard and Antonio Brown as the Buccaneers went to the break with a 21-7 lead.
Upon his return, Fournette scored his second goal to increase the income to 28-7. The run scored a total of 127 yards, 81 of which were lunging and 46 receiving.
Galen Hurts, who hit a five-yard touchdown pass to Zach Erts in the first half, revived the Eagles by throwing two more times that reduced the difference to six points.
Then Brady took the lead by driving nearly four minutes to gain time and put the game away from his territory.
The quarterback completed 34 of 42 passes for 297 yards and an interception.
