The Tampa Bay Buccaneers had a chance to climb above .500 for the first time since Week 5 of the NFL season on Sunday, but a crushing overtime loss to the Cleveland Browns dropped them to 5-6 on the year. This loss took on a greater significance for quarterback Tom Brady, though.

Brady is the most accomplished quarterback in NFL history, but Sunday's loss was the first of a kind for him.

This was the first time in Brady's career that his team lost a game when leading by seven or more points in the final minute of a fourth quarter. To put that in perspective, Brady's 329 career games is the sixth-most in league history. George Blanda is the only position player (non- kicker or punter) to appear in more games.

Tampa Bay held a seven-point lead before the Browns notched their game-tying touchdown with just 32 seconds in regulation. Ultimately, Cleveland earned a victory with Nick Chubb's walk-off TD in the final seconds of overtime.
