The man, the myth, the legend that is Tom Brady will start Week 1 with a new NFL record under his heavy-weight-title belt.
Brady led the NFL in passing yards (5,316) and touchdown passes (43) last season and will record his 20th career Week 1 start in Dallas. His start against Dallas on September 11th will allow Brady to surpass Drew Brees’s 19 career Week 1 starts and lead the NFL for the all-time most career Week 1 starts in NFL history.
There will be a lot more records to be had by the GOAT as the season ticks on, and Brady, without a doubt, still has a lot to prove to himself and to the NFL world. First and foremost, Brady wants to prove that he is still capable of leading a team to a championship, which he recently stated on the Let’s Go! Podcast.
“Yeah, I have a lot to prove. I’ve got a lot to prove this year. I’m out there to prove that I’m still capable of leading a team to a championship.”
If Week 1 is anything like last season’s record-breaking game opener between the Bucs and the Cowboys when Brady threw for 32 completions and Prescott for 42, a shootout is in order, and the most completions and the single game completions in NFL history of 74 set by these two teams, will be long gone.
