  '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.

Several months after Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady won his seventh career Super Bowl championship, Bucs general manager Jason Licht raised eyebrows when he admitted he told Brady he believed the future Hall of Famer could play until he's 50 years old.

"I told him if he wants to play until he’s 50, and he still feels like he can play, he can still play until he’s 50," Licht said at that time of Brady, who turned a young 44 last month.

Brady and longtime teammate and tight end Rob Gronkowski addressed the issue in the latest video shared by the Buccaneers on Thursday:

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.

"I don't find it so difficult," Brady said when asked about staying in the league at least another six years. "Plus in Florida, it’s kind of a retiree state, so I feel like I can play and then just glide into retirement.

"I think I can. I think it’s a yes."

Brady visibly isn't slowing down and earned FedEx Air Player of the Week honors after he threw for 379 passing yards with four touchdowns in last Thursday's season-opening win over the Dallas Cowboys.

The Buccaneers next face the Atlanta Falcons, which were thrashed by the Philadelphia Eagles 32-6 in Week 1, so Brady and company could have another opportunity to produce award-winning statistics this Sunday afternoon.
