It's only Week 2, and Tom Brady already is among the NFL leaders in ... interceptions?

The former New England Patriots quarterback tossed a pair of picks last weekend in his Tampa Bay Buccaneers debut, and while he got off to a much better start Sunday against the Carolina Panthers, he threw to the wrong team again in the third quarter.

Brady was looking for fellow ex-Patriot Rob Gronkowski but made a pretty brutal throw, sailing the ball well over his tight end's head into the hands of Panthers cornerback Donte Jackson.

The pick was Brady's third in just over six quarters of play for the Bucs, continuing a surprising trend for a QB not prone to turnovers.

More surprising was that Brady was targeting Gronkowski, a target he should be on the same page with after they spent nearly a decade together in New England.

Brady and Gronk hooked up on that shallow crossing route plenty of times during their Patriots days, but it appears their timing is a little off in Tampa Bay.

That miscommunication cost Tampa Bay, as Brady's interception led to a Christian McCaffrey touchdown run that cut Tampa Bay's lead over Carolina to 21-7.
