Here we go ladies and gentlemen, the moment we’ve all been waiting for. Tom Brady is finally returning to face the same franchise that he spent the first 20 seasons of his career with including six Super Bowl Championships and nine Super Bowl appearances.
It has been one of the most talked about topics since March of last year. When Tom Brady decided to leave New England and sign the the Bucs, it turned the NFL upside-down. The reign of Lombardi’s with Brady and Belichick came to an abrupt end. In Brady’s first season in red and pewter, the Bucs made history raising the Lombardi in their own stadium, marking Brady’s seventh championship.
This will indeed be the most watched game in the last decade amongst all fans. Even if it only happens once, it’s going to be fitting to witness the greatest quarterback of all-time break a few records against his old team.
Brady is on the verge of becoming the NFL’s leader all time in passing yards, needing only 68 yards to pass Drew Brees. Brady already holds the record for the most touchdown passes in NFL history. With a victory, Brady will also join Peyton Manning, Brett Favre, and Drew Brees as the only players to have beaten all 32 teams.
This game could quickly become a high scoring affair with the over/under being 49 pts and the Bucs being favored by 6.5 pts. There’s no way Tom is going to lose to Bill. This is about proving something and it’s time we see the student beat the teacher.
Now with veteran corner Richard Sherman joining the Buccaneers, the stakes were just raised a lot higher. Looks like mr. you mad bro is going to upset plenty of offensive coordinators this season.
