Tom Brady feels the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are now in "a better place" compared to were they were last month. In October, the Buccaneers went 1-4. This month, the Buccaneers have played two games and they are 2-0.
This past Sunday, the Buccaneers defeated the Seattle Seahawks 21-16 in Munich. The Buccaneers are now 5-5 and they are not playing this week since its a bye week for them. Going into that bye week, Brady says the mood around the team's locker room is better.
Brady happy about the Buccaneers' current state
"I think we're in a better place obviously than we were five quarters ago. And, you know, we found a way to beat the Rams, which was a great win for our team.
And then to go to Germany and win to get to 5-5 before the bye was a big goal for all of us. So, look, I think it's a challenging year in the NFL. I watched a lot of the games, highlights from yesterday and, you know, there's a lot of teams that are -- some that are just playing very, very well -- Minnesota to go into Buffalo, that's a very tough thing to do.
The Eagles have played very consistently all year. I think the Chiefs have played very consistently all year. So, you know, other than that it's kind of a hodgepodge of wins and losses and good games and bad games and which defenses show up, which quarterbacks show up," Brady said, as quoted on the NFL website.
The Buccaneers looked like a team without confidence throughout October. 10 days ago, they ended their three-game losing streak after Brady orchestrated a game-winning drive against the Los Angeles Rams. After beating Rams, the Buccaneers also got the job done in their international game against the Seahawks.
Brady is happy about the Buccaneers finally gaining some momentum but underlined that the key not is to continue working hard. "It's been a unique year to watch. And I think the most important thing when you look forward is how do you play your best football? And if you play your best football you've gotta believe that you're capable of winning every single week.
It's just the challenge is how do you do that? And I always come back to preparation, to your process," Brady explained.
