Tom Brady finally got outdueled Sunday night, and he had to tip his cap to his opponent.
Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson was instrumental in Baltimore's 37-20 upset of the New England Patriots at M&T Bank Stadium, accounting for 224 total yards and three touchdowns (two rushing, one passing).
Amid the postgame frenzy, Brady sought out Jackson and shared a few words with the 22-year-old quarterback, as filmed by NBC Sports Boston's "Camera Guys."

The Ravens' official website also captured the exchange, revealing what the two told each other:
Brady: "Good game, dude. You played great. Congratulations."
Jackson: "Appreciate it. Appreciate it (You're) the GOAT. Appreciate it."
Jackson later admitted that was the first time he had ever met Brady, which is why he kept his message to 42-year-old QB short and sweet.
"I couldn't say nothing else to him," Jackson told the MMQB's Albert Breer.
Jackson's teammates pumped him up as an MVP candidate after the game, and besting Brady and the undefeated Patriots certainly helped his cause.
But Jackson insisted this was just another win -- even if it came at the expense of the "GOAT."
