September 20 (WNN) — Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady cited a missed throw and vowed to get “better” after throwing five touchdown passes in a Week 2 win over the Atlanta Falcons.
The seven-time Super Bowl champion completed 24 of 36 passes for 276 yards and didn’t throw an interception in a 48-25 victory at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Fla., on Sunday.
“Aggressively, we grinded it out,” Brady told reporters. “We all wish we could have done a few things to be more productive. It was a good team effort.”
Brady posted a quarterback rating of 129.2, the second-highest in his 18 regular-season games with the Buccaneers. His lone fault was the rumble of the first quarter.
“We’ve been a little lax with the ball – at different times a few penalties that have taken us off some scoring drives, some missed throws that I’ve made, some missed ones,” Brady said. .
“I definitely wish I had thrown some better [Sunday]. But it’s good to have a win, be 2-0, and have a lot to go on, and it’s good to beat a division opponent.”
Brady, 44, leads the NFL with nine touchdown passes in two weeks. He is in fifth place with 655 passing yards. With Sunday’s performance, he extended his streak to four games in a row with at least four touchdown passes.
Brady threw three touchdown passes against the Falcons in the first half. He threw his last two touchdowns in the third and fourth quarters.
Tight end Rob Gronkowski and wide receiver Mike Evans scored two touchdowns each. Wide receiver Chris Godwin scored the Buccaneers receiving the other touchdown.
Ten players took catches from Brady.
“I think we can do better,” Brady said. “I think we have the opportunity, the way the game is going and the opportunities we are getting with the ball.”
The Bucks (2-0) will face the Los Angeles Rams (2-0) at 4:25 p.m. EDT Sunday at Sophie Stadium in Inglewood, Calif.
