Responding to Brown’s emotional leave, Sky Sports NFL’s Neil Reynolds said in the studio: “I’ve covered this game for sufficient years and seen nothing like that. Staggering.
“Six days ago he [Brown] told the media, ‘you guys are all about drama, I’m all about football’, but you might want to flip that round.
“Tom Brady must be furious. He has gone to bat for Brown, he’s had him live in his house. The public nature of this is going to embarrass Brady, Bruce Arians and the entire Bucs organisation.”
Brady said in his post-game interview: “That’s a difficult situation.

“This is the opposite side of Antonio Brown, which the Raiders see well indeed, the [Pittsburgh] Steelers did towards the end.
“This was consistently a Tom Brady employ. He planned to monitor him, keep him centered. In any case, Bruce Arians is distinctive to Brady: he permitted the Antonio Brown insight to continue, yet there are limits sooner or later and this is excessively clear, occurring in a game.”
The 33-year-old Brown has a path of off-the-field episodes, interruptions and lawful difficulty dating to the beginning of his vocation with the Steelers. Most as of late, Brown was suspended for three games by the NFL this season for distorting a COVID-19 immunization card.
