Ceedy Duce can boast two picks on Tom Brady, one on Sunday and another in Week 8, and he’s not afraid of getting up in Brady’s face about it. Like, literally, in his face.
Known as one of the league’s top instigators, Gardner-Johnson couldn’t resist poking the GOAT once more on Twitter after this video of Brady went viral.
New Orleans Saints’ C.J. Gardner-Johnson is making the most of Week 15 win
On Sunday, Gardner-Johnson recorded seven tackles, one pass defended, and one interception that sealed New Orleans’ victory.
Gardner-Johnson and every other member of the Saints defense played a near-perfect game to shutout Brady and secure the 9-0 win.
Tom Brady, who has been automatic so far this season, came up short without his usual weapons of Chris Godwin and Mike Evans. A win would have won Brady the NFC South division, but he may not have been prepared for New Orleans’ ultra fortified defense.
Interim head coach Dennis Allen reportedly gave the whole team the game ball afterwards, indicating just how much of a team effort was required to accomplish such a feat.
New Orleans have now won four straight against Brady’s Bucs in the regular season, though their record in the playoffs favor Tampa.
Gardner-Johnson’s jokes are all in good humor, and you can’t fault him for celebrating Week 15’s victory as cheeky as possible.
Tom Brady will probably have the last laugh when it comes to the 2021 season, but let NOLA enjoy this one. The Saints haven’t had this much fun in a while.
