Twitter trolled quarterback Tom Brady after his Tampa Bay Buccaneers lost to the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 6.
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Tom Brady had what seemed like a winnable game on paper in Week 6, as they took on a Pittsburgh Steelers team with a secondary depleted due to injuries. Given that Brady was 12-3 against the Steelers in his career, the odds were in his favor.
Well, that was not the case, as Brady and the Bucs lost 20-18 to the Pittsburgh Steelers to fall to 3-3 on the season. Not to mention that this victory brought an end to Pittsburgh’s four-game losing streak.
It was a game to forget for Brady, but Twitter users certainly did not let him overlook the fact that he lost to the Steelers.

The tone was set early on, as the Buccaneers went three-and-out on their opening drive, only to watch the Steelers march down the field on 11 plays, and score a touchdown by way of a Kenny Pickett pass to running back Najee Harris.
At one point, Brady was spotted yelling at his offensive line on the sidelines, trying to hype them up.
In the second half, the Steelers ruled Pickett out after he suffered a concussion. That injury occurred when he hit the back of his head on the turf. The team brought Mitch Trubisky off the bench to try and close things out for the Steelers, and he did just that.
Trubisky extended Pittsburgh’s lead to 20-12 in the fourth quarter after completing a six-yard touchdown pass to wide receiver Chase Claypool. Tampa Bay would respond on the following drive on a 11-yard touchdown reception by Leonard Fournette, but they were unsuccessful in their two-point conversion attempt. Trubisky would close out the game on the final drive by completing two huge first-down passes to Claypool, and running for a first-down of his own.
Brady finished his day completing 25-of-40 pass attempts for 243 yards and one touchdown.
Trubisky threw nine completions for 144 yards and a touchdown on 12 throws.
Brady and the Buccaneers will look to rebound next week when they take on the Carolina Panthers.
