It certainly has been a week to forget for Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Because of mechanical issues, the Bucs were forced to wait on the tarmac for five hours Saturday night before taking off for their flight to Charlotte, per Ian Rapoport of NFL Network.

Fortunately, the issues were solved and the team departed around 6 p.m. ET.

Tampa Bay's tough week began Sunday night when it suffered a 38-3 loss to the New Orleans Saints. Brady tossed three interceptions in the defeat.

The former New England Patriots quarterback's week only got worse when he nearly lost his dock and two jet skis during Tropical Storm Eta. 

Brady and the Bucs (6-3) will look to turn their luck around when they face off against the Carolina Panthers (3-6) Sunday at 1 p.m. ET.
