NFL fans took to Twitter to clown Tom Brady for seemingly being confused about what down it was before Tampa Bay's 19-20 loss to the Chicago Bears on Thursday night.

After throwing an incomplete to Cameron Brate on a fourth down in the fourth quarter, Brady, who looked confused was seen holding his fingers up. Apparently thinking that it was a third down, he then went over to speak to officials. 

"Yeah, you're up against the clock and you're up against the -- I knew we had to gain a chunk, so I should have been thinking more first down instead of chunk in that situation," Brady said following the game, per ESPN. "I knew we needed a chunk and I was thinking about more yardage. It was just bad execution. We had a great opportunity there so ... just didn't execute when we needed to."

NFL fans had plenty of jokes for the situation. People also couldn't help but compare Brady to J.R. Smith.
