Tom Brady may seem like an age-defying super human, but Tampa Bay Buccaneers head coach Bruce Arians knows his 44-year-old quarterback isn't actually Captain America. He's a mortal who needs to remember that his body doesn't bounce back like it used to.
Which is why Arians was less than thrilled with this play from Brady during the Bucs' 33-27 overtime win against the Buffalo Bills on Sunday. Brady's never been much of a rushing quarterback, but he put his body on the line to get a first down in the first quarter.
Not enough people are talking about Tom Brady over 1.5 rushing yards being 9-4 on the season 🤑

Not bad for an old-timer who rarely uses his legs! In all, Brady rushed for 16 yards, his highest one-game output since late 2019.
Brady's decision to run helped the Bucs win a tight game, but Arians doesn't want that to continue. Following the game, he made it clear he did not want his extremely valuable quarterback putting himself in unnecessary danger.
"That's enough of that s***," Arians said after he was asked about Brady running to get a first down.
Passing has always, always been Brady's forte. And if anyone had forgotten that, they were reminded later in the game when Brady threw his 7,143rd career completion, breaking Drew Brees' NFL record of 7,142.
Another first down with his legs! @TomBrady
