WATCH: Tom Brady leads record-setting comeback after f-bomb tirade against teammates on sideline

Trailing by 13 points in the final minutes of the game Monday night, NFL legend Tom Brady mounted an epic comeback against the New Orleans Saints.

At one point, the NFL giant was caught on camera visibly irked, appearing to drop an f-bomb out of frustration, fuming that his team missed key opportunities on the field, but ultimately managed to execute two touchdowns in the final five minutes of the game, delivering a 17-16 win over the Saints.


“We’ve got a lot [of] games coming down to the end, some we’ve won, some we’ve lost, which is why we’re 6-6,” Brady, 45, told reporters, per CNN. “It’s not where we want to be, but we’ll keep fighting.”

Drawing a sharp contrast with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ showdown with the Cleveland Browns last week, in which the Browns came back near the end to clinch victory, Brady orchestrated a 10-play drive starting at the 5:21 mark that led to Cade Otton snagging the first of two critical touchdowns.

Then, upon the next possession, he led an 11-play drive that culminated with a touchdown pass to Rachaad White as mere seconds remained on the clock. Late-stage comebacks have been the hallmark of the seven-time Super Bowl champion’s career.

The plays marked the “largest regular-season 4th quarter comeback” of his career, according to ESPN.

By the game’s end, Brady completed 36 out of 54 passes for a total of 281 yards. The victory moves the Buccaneers to a 6-6 seasonal record and the Saints to 4-9. He later celebrated his daughter Vivian’s 10th birthday.


Brady previously announced his retirement earlier this year before reversing that decision — a move that some have speculated led to his divorce from model Gisele Bundchen.

Tampa Bay is slated to face off against the San Francisco 49ers Sunday, while the Saints have a bye and will next play the Atlanta Falcons on Dec. 18.
