'I never had a doubt that we would win': Bucs pull off ugly victory against Cowboys in final seconds of NFL opener

  'I never had a doubt that we would win': Bucs pull off ugly victory against Cowboys in final seconds of NFL opener Tom Brady and the Bucs opened defense of Super Bowl crown with a 31-29 win against the Cowboys that had good fortune with some championship grit.In a phrase it was this: Buc-Ugly.

Tom Brady's retirement will mark the end of not one but two Hall of Fame NFL careers.

Chris Gronkowski recently told TMZ Sports that his brother, Rob Gronkowski, will officially retire when Brady does.

"Whatever Tom has left, I think that's what Rob has left as well," Gronkowski's brother said. "I just can't see him playing with another quarterback. It's tough to get that chemistry. It's tough to win once you lose that QB."

Brady has said his goal is to play until he's 45, and he's under contract with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers through the 2022 campaign. However, he recently told Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times that he hopes to be with the Bucs "for many years," which means he might have already decided to play beyond his age-45 season.

Cowboys QB Dak Prescott’s farewell to Tom Brady sends message about his confidence

  Cowboys QB Dak Prescott’s farewell to Tom Brady sends message about his confidence Dak Prescott nearly put the Cowboys over the top against the Buccaneers, and the quarterback had a pointed message for Tom Brady afterward.He had just thrown for 403 yards and three touchdowns at Raymond James Stadium, his Cowboys falling 31-29 to the Buccaneers in a match more competitive than many expected.

Brady's trainer, Alex Guerrero, told Stroud that the veteran's body "feels good." In addition, Brady told Stroud he finally feels like he can move around freely without having to wear a knee sleeve following offseason surgery. At this point, it seems like there's no stopping the seven-time Super Bowl champion if he still feels he can compete at a high level.

Hall of Famer Peyton Manning, Brady's former rival, also said he wouldn't be surprised if the former New England Patriots quarterback played until he's at least 49.

That would be a long time for Gronkowski, who has dealt with many injuries during his career, to continue playing. However, the 32-year-old looked healthy in his first season with the Bucs and impressed in the team's 2021 season opener, catching eight passes for 90 yards and two touchdowns.

As NFL's regular season begins, more than 93% of players are fully or partially vaccinated

  As NFL's regular season begins, more than 93% of players are fully or partially vaccinated NFL's COVID-19 protocols provide incentive for players to get vaccinated while making life harder for those who don't.About half of the players who were not vaccinated when they arrived at training camp have since received at least one shot, Dr. Allen Sills, the NFL’s chief medical officer, said Friday.

So, it certainly seems like Gronkowski will continue to be Brady's right-hand man for years to come, provided he stays healthy.
