Tom Brady should have saved himself the last year. Last year, the most successful footballer of all time had already retired, but then returned to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers for another season.

The season was anything but successful. Although the Bucs made the playoffs as division winners, Brady suffered a negative record for the first time in his career (W8 L9). In the postseason, it was over right at the beginning of the Wild Card Round against the Dallas Cowboys.

The Bucs, starting out as Super Bowl contenders, have had a frustratingly poor season. The playoff entry was only due to the weak competition. Nevertheless, Brady achieved further milestones and records in his 23rd season in the NFL – he even experienced what was perhaps his last highlight of his career here, in Germany.

On November 13, 2022, the Buccaneers played the first NFL game ever on German soil. In the Munich Allianz Arena against the Seattle Seahawks. A special adventure even for Brady, who has experienced and seen everything in the sport.

“It was one of the greatest football experiences I’ve ever had,” he said after the game. “When (the fans) sang ‘Sweet Caroline’ and ‘Country Roads’ at the end of the game, it was pretty epic. I think everyone who was there has a really great memory for their life.”

As soon as he arrived in Munich, the 45-year-old knew that it wouldn’t be a normal game even for him. “You will not remember all the games in your career,” said Brady at the press conference after the first training session when asked by FOCUS online. “But you’ll remember this one,” he said. “All of life is made up of memories, this is one. It’s my first time in Germany. I’ll definitely be back.”

Brady had his best game of the season against the Seahawks, throwing for 258 yards and two touchdowns. The Bucs easily won 21:16 and made history.

For Brady, these were personally very valuable milestones. He is now the quarterback to win the first game in Germany. He will be connected to the German football community forever.
