Has Tom Brady ever lost three games in a row? Bucs QB on longest losing streak in 20 years

By | October 28, 2022

Tom Brady is still making history. It’s just painful history.

It was a night to forget for Brady and the Buccaneers on Thursday. Not only was Tampa Bay downed by Baltimore in a juiceless, 27-22 home loss, but Brady also hit some career lows in the matchup.

Brady was flirting with a no-passing touchdown game until he connected with Julio Jones with under a minute left in regulation. Had he finished with zero TDs, it would have been the first time since 2001 that the passer would have gone three games in a row without a touchdown pass.

While Brady avoided that unfortunate bit of history, an unusually defeated Brady made some other personal and NFL history Thursday night.

Has Tom Brady ever lost three games in a row?

Brady has lost three games in a row in his career — it’s just been a really, really long time since the last time it happened. The loss to the Ravens on “Thursday Night Football” marked Brady’s first three-game losing streak since the 2002 season.

Brady and the Patriots lost four games in a row then, to the Chargers, Dolphins, Packers and Broncos.

That 2002 season ended with the Patriots finishing 9-7 and missing the playoffs. It looks as if the Buccaneers may face the same fate if something doesn’t turn around, and fast.

How many times has Tom Brady been sacked?

Brady was sacked three times in the Week 8 loss to the Ravens, giving him the unfortunate distinction of being the most-sacked quarterback in NFL history.

He has now been sacked 556 times, giving him the NFL record. He surpassed recently retired Ben Roethlisberger (554 sacks) to “hold” the record.

As it turns out, not only is losing three games in a row is painful, but it’s also, quite literally, painful. 

Tom Brady career record

Somewhat remarkably, the Buccaneers’ loss on “Thursday Night Football” marks the first time in Brady’s career that he has been two games under .500 during a season.

Brady’s career regular-season record now sits at 246-80 (.755 winning percentage).
