The fact that Brady hasn’t had such a dominant start in any of his three seasons is surprising. He started his first year in Tampa Bay in 2020 with a loss and two interceptions. However, Brady ended up smiling as he was able to defeat Patrick Mahomes’ Kansas City Chiefs in the Super Bowl.
bells Brady started 2021 with two wins, but he suffered two interceptions in the first duel vs. the Dallas Cowboys. This time, Vince Lombardi’s dreams of another trophy ended in the divisional round against the Los Angeles Rams. The final year of his career started with two wins, but TB12 had an interception in week one. Interestingly, the first game of 2022 is also against the Cowboys.
