Video: Tom Brady has huge meltdown on bench during MNF
Tom Brady had a big meltdown on the bench in the second half of his Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ game against the New Orleans Saints on Monday night in Week 13.
The Bucs were down 13-3 and had driven to the New Orleans 40. They had a 4th-and-7 to start the fourth quarter, and head coach Todd Bowles decided to punt rather than go for it.
The Manningcast version of “Monday Night Football” that airs on ESPN2 then showed Brady throwing a fit and yelling on the Bucs’ sideline.

We don’t know exactly what triggered that reaction from Brady, but we know some of the circumstances. Brady threw a few passes on the drive that were dropped that he probably felt should have been caught. Then on top of that, Bowles was not giving the offense a chance on fourth down while down by 10 points.
Brady put together some magic in the Week 9 win over the Rams. Bowles showed no faith in the offense by punting against the Browns in Week 12. He did the same thing against the Saints a week later.
