Legendary quarterback Tom Brady threw a fit on the sidelines and reportedly even cursed out an opposing coach as the Tampa Bay Buccaneers suffered a blow out, scoreless loss to the New Orleans Saints.
As Audacy reports:
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers had a chance to clinch their first NFC South title since 2007 on Sunday Night Football. Instead, the Sean Payton-less New Orleans Saints shut them out, with Dennis Allen’s defense turning in a dominant performance.
While Tom Brady lost Mike Evans, Chris Godwin and Leonard Fournette throughout Tampa Bay’s Week 15 game (with Antonio Brown already serving the final game of his suspension), it was his offensive line that was the most disappointing. Brady was sacked four times — twice by Cameron Jordan, who also added a forced fumble on a night that saw him surpass 100 sacks in his career.
Late in the fourth quarter of what turned out to be a 9-0 loss, Brady was watching a play on a Microsoft Surface Pro tablet. While it appears that the tablet was already hanging on for dear life, Brady may have finished it off Sunday night:

Since Brady joined the Buccaneers last year, they are 0-4 in the regular season against the Saints. There is a qualifier, though, as the Buccaneers defeated the Saints in the NFC Divisional Round last postseason en route to winning the Super Bowl title.
The Buc’s shutout loss may be a poor harbinger for their upcoming chances in the playoffs.
