Tom Brady haters celebrated the Los Angeles Rams AFC Divisional Round victory over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers harder than anyone out there.

As invested in the AFC Divisional matchup as Rams and Bucs fans were, there was another segment of NFL fans who watched the game with bated breath: Tom Brady haters.

They have watched the Patriots then Buccaneers quarterback engineer game-winning drive after game-winning drive over the years.

So when Matthew Stafford hit Cooper Kupp over the middle to set up a game-winning field goal, the celebrations were on.

Tom Brady haters had a field day celebrating the QBs loss to the Rams

Nothing brings NFL fans from all walks of life together quite like dogpiling on Brady.

Brady had a rough time on the pressure front. He took three sacks and looked flustered at times. In the end he had 329 yards, a touchdown and an interception on 30-of-54 passing.

The Bucs found themselves trailing 27-3 as the end of the third quarter neared. Incredibly, Tampa Bay clawed their way back into it by capitalizing on a series of Rams miscues and turnovers. Leonard Forurnette tied the game with 42 seconds remaining with a fourth-down touchdown run.

It may have looked like Brady pulled off another miraculous comeback for a moment, but Stafford and company had other ideas. The Rams made their way into field goal range and won the game 30-27, ending Brady’s season and possibly his career.

Brady’s decision on retirement will have to come at some point. You can bet the Brady haters will be holding their breath for that one as well.
