GREEN BAY, Wis. — Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady added another chapter to his G.O.A.T resume, and it was Scotty Miller on the receiving end.

In the final seconds of the first half, Brady connected with Miller for a stunning 39-yard touchdown — a play that Miller’s dad expects his son to make every time.

“Watching Scotty catch a deep ball is honestly for him than catching an out-route,” Scott Miller said. “It comes naturally to him. He’s done it since he was probably ten years old. That’s what Scotty does. it’s play-maker.”

Just one play before, the Bucs converted on fourth-and-4, with Brady tossing on a short pass to Leonard Fournette to set-up Miller’s touchdown.

“They played me man-to-man,” Scotty said. “My guy didn’t get too much depth. I ran right by him. Tom put a great ball on me like he always does.”

It was a key play to help the Buccaneers beat the Green Bay Packers 31-26 in the NFC Championship Game.

“It’s unbelievable,” Scott said. “It’s hard to put into words. We’ve been watching this game all of our lives. Scotty is the biggest underdog to make it here. It’s an unbelievable feeling to be apart of this as his family.”

A proud mom, dad, and wife were all at Lambeau Field to see the big play in person.

“Let’s go Scooter we love you!” Scotty’s wife Jenna yelled after the game. “You got this! Super Bowl we’re coming!”

“The last thing we said to Scotty as he ran off (the field) is to make sure you get us some tickets,” Scott said.

The will be a hard ticket to come by — as the Bucs are now the first team in NFL history to play a Super Bowl on their home field.

“It was just a special moment,” Scotty said. “It’s something that I don’t even know I could’ve dreamed of it as a kid. Just so crazy.”
