Brady completed 17 of 27 passes for 166 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's 38-10 win over the Packers.

EDGE Analysis

The highly anticipated shootout between Brady and Aaron Rodgers never materialized as the Bucs' defense ended up dominating the game. Brady still tossed multiple TD passes for the fourth time in six games even though Tampa spent most of the second half running the ball and chewing up clock, and he'll take a strong 14:4 TD:INT into Week 7's trip to Las Vegas.

Brady completed 25 of 41 passes for 253 yards with one touchdown and no interceptions in the Buccaneers' 20-19 loss to the Bears on Thursday. He also netted zero yards on three rushes and fumbled once but recovered.

EDGE Analysis

Brady was working with a short-handed pass-catching corps missing Chris Godwin (hamstring) and Justin Watson (chest), but he was able to partly make up for their absences by connecting with Tyler Johnson, Rob Gronkowski and Cameron Brate for nearly half (12) of his 25 completions. Brady also rang up Mike Evans (ankle) for his sixth touchdown pass of the season to the Pro Bowl receiver, but the future Hall of Fame quarterback notably came up short in a late-game scenario he's often thrived in. Getting the ball back with 1:13 remaining at his own 20-yard line and needing to only get into field-goal range for a game-winning attempt, he was able to get the ball down to his own 41-yard line before misfiring to Gronkowski and Brate, the latter coming on a fourth down when Brady committed a rare mental error by thinking he still had one more play. The Buccaneers remain in good position at 3-2 despite the disappointing loss, and they'll now have some extra time to prepare for Week 6 showdown with the Packers on Sunday, Oct. 18.

Brady completed 30 of 46 passes for 369 yards with five touchdowns and one interception in the Buccaneers' 38-31 win over the Chargers on Sunday. He also netted minus-3 yards on three rushes.

EDGE Analysis

Everything about the interconference battle seemed to go opposite what was expected, with Brady's final line a byproduct of the unpredictable nature of the contest. The future Hall of Famer ended up having to put the game on his shoulders despite being down Chris Godwin (hamstring), as the Chargers owned a surprising 24-14 lead at halftime. Brady was especially stellar in the second half, leading four scoring drives and capping three of them with touchdown passes to O.J. Howard (Achilles), Scotty Miller and Ke'Shawn Vaughn. Those scoring tosses were preceded by a pair to Cameron Brate and Mike Evans in the first half, making it Brady's second straight multi-touchdown game and third in his first four overall as a Buccaneer. Brady is getting increasingly comfortable in coach Bruce Arians' offense after having thrown for 666 yards and eight touchdowns over the last two games, and he'll look to follow up his season-best effort in a Thursday night road showdown against the Bears.

Brady completed 25 of 38 passes for 297 yards with three touchdowns and no interceptions in the Buccaneers' 28-10 win over the Broncos on Sunday. He also netted zero yards on five rushes and had one fumble, but it was recovered by the offense.

EDGE Analysis

Brady unsurprisingly appears to be getting more comfortable in coach Bruce Arians' offense with each passing week, with Sunday's performance his most efficient yet in his three-game Buccaneers tenure. The future Hall of Famer continued to display excellent chemistry with MIke Evans near the goal line, hitting the Pro Bowl receiver for a pair of one-yard touchdown tosses. He also found Chris Godwin (hamstring), who'd missed Week 2 with a concussion, for another score, and he connected most often with Rob Gronkowski, hitting his long-time tight end on six occasions. All told, it was a comfortable win for the now 2-1 Bucs, who will look to stay hot in a Week 4 home battle against the Chargers.

Brady completed 23 of 35 passes for 217 yards with one touchdown and one interception in the Buccaneers' 31-17 win over the Panthers on Sunday. He also netted zero yards on his one rush and lost a fumble.

EDGE Analysis

Following a season-opening loss to the Saints in which he threw two interceptions, including a pick-six, Brady checked into Sunday's second straight divisional matchup looking to right the ship. Despite being hampered by the absence of Chris Godwin (concussion), the future Hall of Famer was able to put together a solid effort that nevertheless saw him commit two turnovers once again. However, as opposed to his miscues against New Orleans, the mistakes didn't come at critical moments for the Buccaneers. Brady also commemorated his second touchdown pass to Mike Evans in style, hitting his top wideout for a nifty 23-yard score in the latter portion of the first quarter to up Tampa Bay's lead to 13-0 pending Ryan Succop's extra point, and he saw running back LeSean McCoy drop a perfectly placed pass in the end zone that would have given him a second scoring toss. Brady clearly still has some more kinks to work out while adapting to coach Bruce Arians' scheme, and having Godwin potentially back at his disposal in a Week 3 interconference road battle against the Broncos would help in that regard.

Brady completed 23 of 36 passes for 239 yards and two touchdowns with two interceptions in Sunday's 34-23 loss to the Saints. He also ran three times for nine yards and a touchdown.

EDGE Analysis

While accounting for three scores, including a surprising two-yard TD scamper in the first quarter, is far from a terrible performance, Brady also did his best Jameis Winston impression in the third quarter when he tossed a pick-six to Janoris Jenkins, putting the Bucs in a 24-7 hole they were never able to climb out of. Brady is still adjusting to his new system and new teammates, so some initial hiccups should probably be expected. He should be able to put together a better result in Week 2 against a Panthers defense that got lit up for 34 points by the Raiders in its opener.

Brady's day off from practice Friday was planned in order to give him consecutive days of rest, with the Buccaneers idle as a team Saturday, Carmen Vitali of the team's official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

The prize offseason acquisition has exceeded his already lofty expectations in early camp practices by all accounts, with long-time teammate and fellow new arrival Rob Gronkowski noting Thursday that Brady's arm seems even stronger than back during the tight end's rookie 2010 campaign. After a highly productive first week-plus of on-field work, Arians decided to give Brady a proverbial veteran's day off from the daily late-summer grind, joking noting he expects his quarterback to be "fresh as daisies" when he gets back to work Sunday.

Brady had a good first several days of training camp and seems to be adapting well to both the Florida heat and coach Bruce Arians' offense, Jenna Laine of ESPN.com reports. "Yeah he's probably the least of my worries right now," Arians said Thursday. "He's where he needs to be."

EDGE Analysis

The 21-year-veteran has gotten off to a solid start by all accounts, although he only faced coordinator Todd Bowles' aggressive and complex defense for the first time Friday. The Buccaneers will progress to their first padded practice Monday, at which point Arians notes Brady will be challenged with processing information and testing his grasp of the offense "at a much higher pace." That process already began Friday, and Carmen Vitali of the team's official site notes Mike Edwards recorded the first interception off the legendary quarterback with a great read on a sideline route, but he adds that Brady also made a number of impressive completions to Mike Evans, Chris Godwin, O.J. Howard and Rob Gronkowski during the full-speed, non-padded practice.

Brady was described by head coach Bruce Arians on Tuesday as being "way ahead of the curve" in learning the Buccaneers' offense, Carmen Vitali of the team's official site reports. "He's a very bright guy," Arians added. "The terminology was the big thing and as we now get together, starting tomorrow, we'll start to collaborate a little bit more. I think he's in a great spot right now as far as that goes."

EDGE Analysis

Naturally, Brady, Arians and offensive coordinator Byron Leftwich haven't had any time together as of yet, although that's about to change with training camp kicking off. However, Brady received Arians' playbook soon after signing and subsequently held informal workouts for several weeks at Berkeley Preparatory School in the Tampa area with all of his key offensive teammates. Consequently, the future Hall of Famer has a strong foundation of the offense coming into camp, and Jenna Laine of ESPN.com previously reported that Arians and Brady will work closely together moving forward on tailoring what they can of the existing system into what the quarterback is most comfortable with. However, it does bear noting Arians isn't planning on coming close to overhauling an aggressive downfield attack he's had considerable success with, calling the process he and Brady will go through as "meeting in the middle" and emphasizing he won't ask the rest of his players "to learn something new when they've already had a good year and good experiences in this offense."

Brady continues to lead private workouts with teammates at a Tampa area high school despite recent positive coronavirus tests for other Buccaneers, Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

EDGE Analysis

The future Hall of Famer began organizing the early morning sessions several weeks ago at Berkeley Preparatory School. The practices persisted Tuesday despite the rise in COVID-19 cases in Florida and the news that at least two Buccaneers players have tested positive for coronavirus, and despite a strongly worded recommendation from the NFLPA against players congregating for workouts until training camp. Brady led a group of approximately 12 players, including Rob Gronkowski, in Tuesday's session, which ran for two hours and included the customary array of pass routes. Stroud also notes what initially began as a smaller gathering of offensive skill position players has now grown to include cornerback Jamel Dean, as well as safeties Sean Murphy-Bunting and Mike Edwards.
