The 49ers got a second interception off Tom Brady in the second half when he tried to lob a pass over the top of 49ers linebacker Dre Greenlaw. That was a bad idea as Greenlaw skied high to tip the throw up to himself for San Francisco’s second takeaway of the game.
That was Greenlaw’s first interception of the year and the third of his career.
Needless to say, it was a special moment for him.
After the 49ers destroyed the Bucs, Greenlaw would have Brady sign that same ball for him after the game.

Dre Greenlaw then spoke about that moment as he held the ball:
The much-hyped showdown between the greatest player in NFL history and his childhood team turned into an easy victory for the 49ers who had a rookie QB behind center. Purdy outdueled Buccaneers quarterback and California native Tom Brady, who struggled during his return to his hometown area and finished with 253 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions on 34-of-55 passing.
The 49ers, who lost Deebo samuel to injury, outgained the Buccaneers 209-69 on the ground, with running back Christian McCaffrey finishing with 14 carries for 119 yards and one touchdown.
Despite losing two quarterbacks in Jimmy G and Trey lance, the 49ers remain dangerous.
Brady struggled in one of the worst losses of his career, completing 34 of 55 passes for just 253 yards, a touchdowns, and a pair of interceptions. Despite a terrible record, the Bucs remain in first place in the NFC South.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
