The Tampa Bay Buccaneers defeated the Dallas Cowboys 31-29 on Thursday night.
Bucs quarterback Tom Brady looked strong in the opening game, recording four touchdowns and 379 yards in the win. Although he threw two picks, one came on this Hail Mary end-of-half heave – which doesn’t really count.
Tom went for it all to end the half.

Unfortunately, Brady’s performance was not without controversy.
Eagle-eyed fans noticed something odd during the game:
Why does it look like Brady is wearing an ear piece while playing? @JunksRadio pic.twitter.com/jZKHPbbbov

Interestingly enough, this isn’t the first weird thing to come out of last Thursday’s game. Social media also went absolutely wild when it appeared as though a referee got busted making up a call without realizing he was mic’d up at the time.
Will Brady come out and address all the chatter about his earpiece? Time will tell.
Dak Prescott stays winning. https://t.co/WN2voiN8k7
