Tom Brady throws a believably unbelievable TD pass for last-minute win over Texans

What a beauty.

Tom Brady and the Patriots got one heck of a fight from the Houston Texans and Deshaun Watson on Sunday. As we’ve seen so many times in the past, Brady came out on top.

Down 33-28, Brady led the Patriots on a 2-minute drill to put his team at 2-1 on the season. The game-winning touchdown went to Brandin Cooks with 23 seconds left.

The touchdown was Brady’s sixth career game with five or more touchdown passes, tying Dan Marino for third all-time. The Pats got the two-point conversion and held on for the 36-33 win.

Brady’s game-winning drive comes after he had a subpar Week 1 against a Chiefs team that’s looked like one of the best in the NFL. In Week 2 against the Saints, he was back to his old self with 447 passing yards and three touchdowns.

Brady got the best of the rookie Watson, but we got a glimpse as to what he’s going to look like in the future.

For now, Brady proved he’s still the clutch quarterback we’ve all known him to be.
