This Sunday, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers host the Los Angeles Rams in an important duel of week 8 of the 2022 NFL season, however, it will also mark the first game of the legendary quarterback Tom Brady as a divorced man after last Friday’s announcement in which the divorce with the Brazilian top model, Gisele Bündchen, was made official.
But, although it seems incredible, what until a few days ago was the most famous couple of an athlete and a model on Planet Earth, has had multiple episodes marked in the most important games of the quarterback against the current NFL champions.
Chapter 1: Brady’s last Super Bowl with the Patriots
To properly tell this story we have to go back to last February 3, 2019 when Super Bowl LIII was played at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta, Georgia between the New England Patriots and the Los Angeles Rams, with the team led by head coach Bill Belichick winning by a score of 13-3.
Statistically it was clearly the worst Super Bowl so far in TB12’s great career as he completed 21 of 35 passes for 262 yards, no touchdown passes (the only time this has happened to him in an NFL Championship Game) and an interception, but emotionally it ended up being his last Vince Lombardi Trophy game with the Patriots with Gisele and her three children in the luxury box.
Chapter 2: Gisele’s Last Game in the Box
A season later, Brady changed teams for the first time in his career and put on the Buccaneers jersey and after winning the Super Bowl LV against the Kansas City Chiefs, he sought to repeat as champion, which he did not achieve when he was eliminated on January 23, 2022 precisely by the same Rams in the last game of the seven-time Super Bowl champion that Gisele Bündchen saw in a stadium, in that game TB12 hit 30 of 54 passes for 329 yards with a touchdown for an interception.
After that came Brady’s retirement announcement, followed by the announcement of regret and a comeback for his 23rd NFL season which according to a Page Six report ended up being the favor that made the former Victoria Secret Angel decide to end a marriage that lasted 13 years.

Incredibly, the new phase in Tom Brady’s life, now without a wife, begins this November 6 when Brady takes on, believe it or not, the Rams.
