Tom Brady surpassed Peyton Manning for the most fourth-quarter comeback victories on Monday when he led the Tampa Bay Buccaneers to a stunning defeat of the New Orleans Saints.

“Here’s the great thing about Tampa. You can win your division playing 6 minutes of football. That’s all they need to do. So, how fresh are they gonna be come playoff time?” Schlereth said of the Bucs first.
