GOAT Herders: Cowboys put finishing touch on Brady's historic career

Tom Brady has announced his retirement from football. Again. Exactly one year- to the day- after he announced his retirement from football the first time.

In 2022, that Feb. 1 declaration lasted just 40 days before he changed his mind. This time, though, it’s “for good,” he said in a quick video statement he posted to social media on Wednesday. “You only get one super-emotional retirement essay, and I used mine up last year.”

And while the 45-year-old goes out owning an entire trophy room’s worth of NFL records- Super Bowl rings, division titles, playoff starts, passing yards, touchdown throws, game-winning drives among them- he also goes out on a losing note.

The Cowboys’ 31-14 win on Jan. 16 over the Buccaneers in the wild-card round of the postseason will, assuming this retirement holds up, go down as Brady’s final NFL game appearance. Dallas snuck the victory in just under the wire; they had never beaten Brady before in seven previous meetings.

Cowboys fans thought they had missed their chance at taking down the GOAT when he retired the first time. His comeback ended up giving Dallas two more shots at him, and they finally made good with the last one.

Here’s a look back at the series history between Brady and the Cowboys.
