Brady and Tampa Bay demolished the Bears, 38-3. Brady was 20-for-36 passing for 211 passing yards and four TDS, including the 600th touchdown pass of his career.
Three of the four Brady touchdown passes went to Mike Evans. The star wide receiver had six catches for 76 yards. Chris Godwin led the Bucs with eight catches for 111 yards and had the other touchdown catch. Leonard Fournette gained 81 yards on the ground on 15 carries and scored a touchdown.
Godwin caught Brady’s 599th touchdown, and Evans scored No. 600. Evans mistakenly gave his touchdown ball away to a fan. It appeared Evans didn’t realize that his touchdown catch was Brady’s 600th, and he handed the ball to a Bucs fan sitting in an end zone seat at Raymond James Stadium. The fan appeared elated.
Later, a Bucs crew member approached the fan and appeared to strike a deal to get the ball back. The man did give up the ball in exchange for some signed memorabilia. The ball could be worth $500,000, according to Ken Goldin of Goldin Auctions.
Tampa Bay improved to 6-1 on the season and the Bears fell to 3-4.
