After the Buccaneers’ loss to the Washington Redskins, Mike Evans comments on Tom Brady’s performance.
With four interceptions in the last two games for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, it’s fair to wonder if Tom Brady, 44, is regressing.
“No, he looked exactly like himself,” Bucs wide receiver Mike Evans said after the Bucs’ 29-19 loss to Washington on Sunday.
“There were definitely penalties.”
We had turnovers that had nothing to do with him.
JD (Jaelon Darden) and I were to blame.”
Darden was hit on the pass to him, and the ball popped high in the air, giving Washington defensive back William Jackson III ample time to intercept it.

According to Next Gen Stats, all but three of Brady’s completed passes on Sunday were under ten yards.
Washington’s secondary, Evans said, “did a really good job playing two-high defense.”
Defeat “Doesn’t Define Our Season,” Evans says.
After the bye week last season, Tampa Bay went all-in and won eight straight games en route to the title.
The Buccaneers’ season in 2021 will now be determined by how the coaches and players react to the team’s thud following the bye week.
“It’s incredibly aggravating.
Evans told the media, “I know we’re a better team than them, but we didn’t get the job done.”
“That’s why you’re going to play on Sunday.”
You have to go out there and give it your all because that’s an NFL team, and they’re a good team, and they won tonight.”
Evans also talked about how he’ll go about tackling his…
