Former Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger saw his former team defeat Tom Brady’s Tampa Bay Buccaneers 20-18 in a massive upset to snap a four-game losing streak. But there was something else about Brady that caught Roethlisberger’s attention during the game.
During the latest edition of his “Footbahlin with Ben Roethlisberger” podcast, Roethlisberger stated that Brady looked like he “didn’t” even want to be there on Sunday. Sunday.
“It didn’t look like he wanted to be out there. I mean, maybe it was the pressure and he was getting hit…whatever what was going on…,” Roethlisberger said. “I’m like ‘There’s no way he’s enjoying this. No way.'”

A video of Brady screaming at his offensive linemen in the second quarter went viral. The seven-time Super Bowl champion was very frustrated throughout the game, and understandably so.

Tampa Bay was a 10-point favorite against a Pittsburgh team that had lost four in a row. The Steelers were also playing without superstars T.J. Watt and Minkah Fitzpatrick as well as their three best cornerbacks in Levi Wallace, Cam Sutton and Ahkello Witherspoon.
But the usually dangerous Tampa Bay offense couldn’t get much of anything going for three and a half quarters. They scored their lone touchdown of the game with 4:38 remaining, but Brady’s ensuing two-point conversion attempt pass to Chris Godwin (which would’ve tied the game) fell incomplete.
Brady and the Tampa Bay offense wouldn’t see the ball again. Mitch Trubisky, who had to replace a concussed Kenny Pickett in the third quarter, pieced together a superb clock-melting drive to put the game away for Pittsburgh.
Brady finished the day with 25 completions on 40 pass attempts for 243 yards and a touchdown. Though Brady was sacked just seven times through the first five games of the season, he was sacked twice on the day by a banged-up Pittsburgh defense.
After losing just four games all of last season, the Bucs have already lost three through their first six games. The team will have a chance to get back above .500 when they visit the 1-5 Carolina Panthers this Sunday.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
