After Mike Evans gives away Tom Brady’s 600th passing touchdown ball to him, a Bucs staffer negotiates with a fan to return it. (0:34).
In Week 7, Tom Brady gave a show, throwing for four touchdowns as well as becoming the first quarterback to throw 600 career touchdown passes in NFL history. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers defeated the Chicago Bears 38-3 and secured the best seven-game start ever in the franchise's history. It was what Brady did on the field that merited special applause Sunday.
With 7:58 left in the fourth quarter, backup Blaine Gabbert replaced Brady under center. TB12 was seen making his way to a young fan who held up a sign that read "Tom Brady helped my beat brain cancer."
Brady met the fan by putting his hat on his head and shaking hands (second slide). After meeting the 44-year old, the fan was overwhelmed with emotion and covered his face in tears (third slide).
Brady said that the "sweet" conversation with the "tough child" during his postgame news conference "puts a lot into perspective, what's happening on the field... It doesn't really mean anything compared to the hardships that so many people have to go through."

Brady understands what it is all about.
