Tom Brady beat a Brees and then scored with one later … ’cause after the Buccaneers superstar bounced Drew Brees from the playoffs Sunday — he threw a TD to the QB’s son!
The cool moment all went down an hour or so after the Bucs beat the Saints in the Superdome in an NFC Divisional Round game … with Brady and Brees having what appeared to be a pretty emotional talk.
Brady gave Brees (who had just finished likely the final game of his historic career) a handshake and a long hug … and then suddenly Brees’ son came up to the two.

The young Brees handed a ball to Tom — and TB12 knew exactly what to do with it!!!
The Tampa Bay signal-caller fired a perfect strike into the corner of the endzone … and the little Brees came down with a pretty impressive catch!
“That a boy!” Tom told the kid. “We could have used you tonight. Got to get that ball in the endzone!”
Brees’ wife then gave Tom a hug … and Brady provided some strong words of wisdom to Drew’s other son — “Be nice to your sister.” Tom then bolted for the locker room.
Of course, the whole moment was super special … Sunday is almost certainly the final time the two legends will compete on the same field again — so it was cool to see the two G.O.A.T.s go out like this.
