Tom Brady had fun trolling the Colts after Tampa Bay’s 38-31 comeback win over Indianapolis on Sunday.
On a new episode of his “Let’s Go!” podcast, released on Monday, Brady told cohost Jim Gray that Sunday’s victory was “especially fun” because he is now 16-4 against Indianapolis in his career.
“I think I’ve beat the Colts the last nine times I’ve played ’em, so it was great to win in Indy. It turns out that horseshoe on their helmet isn’t as lucky as it seems, which really sucks for them, but not for us,” Brady said, laughing.
He added that he’s “done a pretty good job lately” of beating the Colts.
Brady’s Patriots defeated Indianapolis eight consecutive times before he joined the Buccaneers in March 2020. Sunday’s overtime win pushed his victory streak to nine.
Gray suggested, “It’s been a lucky horseshoe for you, maybe you should take it off their helmet and maybe you’re carrying it around.”
Brady replied, “Send it out to Peyton [Manning], get me a decal or something.”
Many of Brady’s wins against the Colts came during his 20-year career in New England, in legendary battles against Manning.
The pair reminisced about their QB matchups when Brady appeared on the Manningcast on “Monday Night Football” last month.
In Sunday’s win over Indianapolis, Brady completed 25 of 34 passes for 226 yards with one touchdown and one interception.
He gave a shoutout to Leonard Fournette in the podcast episode, after the Bucs running back recorded four total touchdowns, along with seven receptions for 31 yards.
Gray went on to ask Brady if he feels the same joy of beating the Colts now that he’s a Buccaneer.
“You know, it’s great to beat the Colts, always. I’ve had, obviously quite a history with them,” Brady said. “I loved when Peyton was there. It was pretty tough to beat them when Peyton was there… Carson [Wentz], who’s their quarterback now, I think was in kindergarten when Peyton was in his rookie season, so that tells you how long this has been going back for.”
Brady noted that the Bucs have multiple former Colts coaches on their staff — including Bruce Arians, Clyde Christensen and Tom Moore.
So when the Bucs faced the Colts on Sunday, Brady told his coaching staff, “Listen, don’t everyone get teary-eyed when we beat these guys. I don’t want any sadness. Don’t feel like there’s anything to be sad for after we win this game.”
Brady’s first win against the Colts was a 44-13 victory in 2001. The seven-time Super Bowl winner last lost to Indianapolis on Nov. 15, 2009.
