Tom Brady’s Game-Winning Touchdown Vs. the Saints Gets the Tecmo Bowl Treatment (Video + GIFs)

In recent years, notable NFL plays have been getting what’s known around here as “The Tecmo Bowl treatment.”

What is the Tecmo Bowl treatment? Pretty much exactly what it sounds like: famous plays re-enacted by the iconic late-80s football video game.

Want some examples? Well, the Tim Tebow touchdown on the first play of overtime against the Steelers got the Tecmo Bowl treatment. That was a no-brainer, really. And the Alex Smith-to-Vernon Davis touchdown to beat the Saints in January of 2012 also got the treatment.

So you see where this is going, right? On Sunday, we witnessed a pretty memorable fourth quarter comeback drive from Tom Brady. And since it was kind of a big deal, it’s only natural that it would get the treatment.

First, take a look at the actual play:
