Tom Brady was shut out for the first time in 15 years on Sunday night, and he was frustrated with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers offense and its performance against the New Orleans Saints throughout the evening. The Buccaneers were already down Mike Evans, Chris Godwin, and Leonard Fournette due to injuries, leaving Brady with a few options to move the chains as the Saints defense continued to make him uncomfortable in the pocket. 

Brady threw an interception in the fourth quarter to C.J. Gardner-Johnson and immediately yelled something to Saints coach Dennis Allen (who filled in as head coach Sean Payton, who was out due to COVID-19) after the turnover. The Buccaneers quarterback appeared to have choice words for Allen, yet downplayed the moment. 

"Ah nothing, just football," Brady said. "They're pretty good, they have a really good defense -- really good scheme, they are tough to go against. They are well-coached, have a lot of great players -- a lot of veteran players that have played together for a long time. They did a great job."

Allen wasn't asked about the incident with Brady, as the Saints defense held the quarterback to just 26 of 48 for 214 yards with no touchdowns to one interception (57.1 rating). Brady was shut out in a game for the first time since Dec. 10, 2006 and the Saints are the first NFC team to record a shutout of Brady. Sunday's loss was also the first time Brady has been shut out at home in his career. 

New Orleans didn't do anything crazy to rattle Brady. The Saints were able to rush four guys to get to him and had excellent success, having four sacks and seven quarterback hits. 

"Yeah I think that's big. I think that's big," Allen said. "I think he (Brady) does a really good job of recognizing the coverages and knows when you're sending a five-man pressure, he knows where to go with the ball. So, I think it's hard to get to him at times doing that. 

"So, if you're able to rush him with four, I think that's when most teams have been successful."
