Tom Brady bested Drew Brees in his first (and likely last) postseason game against the Saints QB. After the game the two had a touching moment where they tossed the football around together with Brees’ kids.
Video shows Brady and Brees – who have a combined 41 years of NFL experience between them – hugging and saying goodbye after walking down the field together. There was one especially sweet moment where Brady threw a touchdown pass to Brees’ son.
According to NFL insider Ian Rapoport, Brady had a message for Brees’ son as well. He apparently told the young man “Be nice to your sister.”
You’ll be hard pressed to find a more touching moment between two Hall of Fame QBs ever recorded on camera. Take a look for yourself:

Tom Brady outdueled Drew Brees in the NFC Divisional Round, winning 30-20. Brady had two touchdown passes and a touchdown run, and did just enough to keep the Bucs in a game after a slow start.
It was a much less impressive outing for Brees though. The Saints QB had one touchdown but three interceptions, two of which came in the fourth quarter.
It wasn’t the high-octane shootout that we wanted from the two NFL legends. And for that to potentially be Brees’ last game will leave a sour taste in many mouths.
But it’s clear that Brees and Brady have a respect for one another that goes beyond the field. You love to see it.
