Tension was high during the Tampa Bay Buccaneers vs New Orleans Saints game yesterday afternoon as the two rivals did not have a great game, offensively. At halftime, the Saints were up by just one field goal, and it is clear the players were frustrated with their performances.

Tampa Bay Bucs quarterback, Tom Brady, is looked at as a leader. Unfortunately, even leaders let their emotions get the best of them sometimes and that is exactly what happened yesterday when the 45-year-old threw and broke a tablet on the sideline out of frustration.

SportsCenter shared images of the event, writing, "Tom Brady threw a tablet in frustration after the Bucs offense's rough start."

Things turned around for the Buccaneers as they ended up defeating the Saints 20-10, making the Bucs 2-0 to start the season. After the game ended, Brady shared a video on Twitter addressing the tablet incident.

"Great win to get to 2-0," Brady started in the video before apologizing for his behavior earlier in the game. "Sorry for breaking that tablet," he said smiling, "I think that's going to be another Twitter meme or something like that."

More Drama During The Bucs Saints Game

Brady throwing the tablet was by far the only drama-filled event during yesterday's NFL game.

Later on in the game, Brady seemed frustrated he did not get a flag call, sparking Saints defensive back Marshon Lattimore to start taunting the quarterback. Tampa Bay Buccaneers running back, Leonard Fournette, then got involved, pushing Lattimore back away from Brady to protect him, when suddenly Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Mike Evans came off the sidelines and shoved Lattimore practically to the ground.

Both Evans and Lattimore were ejected from the game. Mike Evans is currently being reviewed by league officials for a possible suspension as this is not the first time the Bucs wide receiver has had an altercation on the football field.

Tom Brady Is Also Dealing With Personal Issues

Brady has been in the spotlight a lot as of late as reports have been coming in, saying he and his wife, Gisele Bündchen are having marital issues. The rumors began when the Bucs quarterback took an unexpected 11-day break from training camp in August due to “personal reasons”, according to Tampa Bay Buccaneers head coach Todd Bowles.

After Brady returned to training camp from his 11-day absence, he released a statement saying, “Everyone has different situations they’re dealing with, and we all have unique challenges to our lives. I’m 45 years old, man.”

A source recently came forward, saying that the marriage between the Brazilian supermodel and NFL quarterback is not “over by any means” and that Brady is “doing what he can do to smooth things over” with his wife.

Brady's decision to unretire seems to be the reason behind the current marital issues. The two are reportedly living separately at the moment.
