Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady tried his best to draw a flag, but he failed miserably.
During Tampa Bay’s 30-24 win over the visiting Panthers on Sunday, Brady, dropping back to pass late in the third quarter, was given a gentle shove by a Panthers defensive tackle.
The legendary quarterback threw his hands up and then rolled on the ground while slapping it in an apparent attempt to draw a roughing the passer call.
No flag was thrown on the play, and Carolina added insult to injury by blocking Tampa Bay kicker Ryan Succop’s ensuing field goal attempt.

During the game — a victory that gave the Bucs back-to-back division titles for the first time – Brady completed 34 of 45 passes for 432 yards and three touchdowns in a vintage performance. All of his touchdown passes went to wide receiver Mike Evans as the Bucs, at 8-8, secured the NFC South title and a home playoff game.
Unless something drastically changes, the Tampa Bay Bucs are likely to face the Dallas Cowboys in the wild-card round.
That can change if the Eagles lose their 3rd-straight game, which would give the Cowboys the NFC East division win if they can come out victorious in their game.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
