With his Buccaneers winning the Super Bowl, quarterback Tom Brady can joke about his Soldier Field gaffe. In a video posted to his Tik-Tok account, Brady detailed what was going through his head — or what wasn’t — when he mistakenly lost track of downs.
Bears cornerback DeAndre Houston-Carson broke up a fourth-down pass from Brady with 33 seconds left in the Bears’ 20-19 win Oct. 8. Brady held up four fingers, as if to say he thought the Bucs still had fourth down coming up. After the game, he demurred when asked if he lost count; coach Bruce Arians said he didn’t.
On Tik-Tok, though, Brady said he thought it was third down.
They taught me how to use the green screen… I’m evolving. Who wants more TikTok highlights? @bucsnfl
“You guys remember this one?” he said with the clip playing in the background. “Fourth quarter, last chance in Chicago. I thought it was the second-to-last chance in Chicago, but apparently not. I don’t think I’ve ever been as confused as I am in this moment right here. Look at that face.”
Brady then held up four fingers again — and smacked himself in the face.
