Buccaneers' Tom Brady picked up first career unsportsmanlike conduct penalty vs Rams
In the midst of the Bucs’ most productive drive of the game vs LA Rams, Tom Brady receives a 15-yard penalty for unsportsmanlike conduct; his first ever.
During the NFC South champions' divisional-round matchup between the Rams and the Bucs on Sunday, Tom Brady was whistled for his first unsportsmanlike conduct penalty of his career.
After what looked like a hit in the face by the Rams pass rusher Von Miller, Brady felt he had a reason to yell at officials, especially as the Buccaneers had just had their most productive drive of the struggling first half.
The seven-time Super Bowl champion turned to officials yelling, with a finger pointed to his bloody chin, when Shawn Hochuli flagged his yellow card at Brady.
The 15-yard penalty marked the first unsportsmanlike penalty in Brady’s 22-year career.
TB12, who led the league in passing yards during the regular season, had a slow performance in the first half against the Rams, with no touchdown throws, an interception and a sack. He was not able to complete his first pass until Tampa’s third possession of the game, evidently showing his frustration.
