NEW ORLEANS — Tom Brady’s two touchdown passes in Tampa Bay’s 30-20 playoff victory Sunday gave him 77 in postseason play. After the Buccaneers eliminated the New Orleans Saints and quarterback rival Drew Brees, Brady threw one more TD pass -- to Brees’ son.

Brady and Brees were chatting on the field after the game in New Orleans’ Mercedes-Benz Superdome, along with Brees’ four children. One of Brees’ sons handed Brady a football. As the boy ran a pattern to the end zone, Brady lofted a pass that the boy caught.

“Have fun,” Brady said to one of Brees’ children as he walked off the field. “Be nice to your sister.”

Brady, 43, who also ran for a touchdown to seal the Bucs’ divisional-round victory against the Saints, is headed for his 14th conference final and first with Tampa Bay. Brees, 42, the NFL’s all-time leader in passing yardage with 80,358 regular-season yards, may have played the final game of his career on Sunday. While he has one more year on his contract, there is speculation that Brees may retire.
