The defending Super Bowl champion Tampa Bay Buccaneers finished their preseason strong by beating the Houston Texans 23-16 on Saturday.

The Buccaneers were led by their seven-time Super Bowl-winning quarterback Tom Brady.

In spite of the victory, Brady said he still has something to learn, even as someone who has played in the NFL for 21 years.

“Every time you play, you learn something,” Brady said. “I’ve been doing this a long time, but you (can’t) … take anything for granted.”

The beginning of the game was rough for the Buccaneers. Regardless, the 44-year-old quarterback was glad that the team was able to pull through.

“It was good to get a couple of good long drives in,” Brady said. “We really haven’t played that much … so it was just good to spread the ball around and get into a little flow and it was good to score and get the win.”

Overall, Tampa Bay coach Bruce Arians was pleased with the result.

“We’re healthy,” the 68-year-old coach said. “I like the game speed in which we played this ballgame and we still have some guys that are catching back up, but I think we’re going to be fine.”

The Buccaneers will host the Dallas Cowboys at Raymond James Stadium on September 9 in the NFL season opener.
