Tom Brady's first game as quarterback of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers started off swimmingly, but the former New England Patriots signal-caller had plenty of growing pains with his new team on Sunday.
After punching in a touchdown run on his first drive, Brady struggled to get on the same page as his wide receivers. The first miscue came in the second quarter, when Brady and Mike Evans miscommunicated and New Orleans Saints safety Marcus Williams took advantage.
Brady and the Bucs' struggles continued into the second half. Early in the third quarter, Brady tossed one into the hands of Janoris Jenkins who returned the interception for six.
On the bright side for Brady, he quickly made amends for his mistake on his next drive by connecting with tight end O.J. Howard for his first passing TD as a Buccaneer.
