Tom Brady and Tampa Bay overcame the Atlanta Falcons 21-15 on Sunday, but the veteran QB still ‘had nightmares’ about Falcons defensive tackle Grady Jarett.
Grady Jarett was flagged for tackling Tom Brady on Sunday, with the 45-year old describing the tackle as a ‘long unwelcome hug’:
“It was a long hug, a long unwelcome hug from Grady, and he was in the backfield all day. So as I said after the games, I don’t throw flags. What I do throw is tablets, and I didn’t have one accessible at that time. He had a hell of a game. I’ll leave it at that.”
“I woke up this morning, I was looking around the corner everywhere for Grady Jarrett jumping out and hitting me again.
“He played such a good game against us yesterday and I had nightmares last night kind of thinking about him. But I’m glad we’re through with that game. I’m glad we won.”
The Tampa Bay win moved their record to 3-2 for the season so far, but with a difficult game against the Steelers coming up this weekend, Brady will have to get Jarrett out of his dreams and be on his usual top form.
