Watch NFL Live:

Brady’s legacy is forever steeped in each of the six Super Bowl championship banners he had a part in hanging above New England’s Gillette Stadium.

Brady will be back in Foxborough on Sunday night to meet the Patriots for the first time since he left after 20 seasons to join the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He’ll be opposite not only former coach Bill Belichick, but past teammates who have also never taken an NFL field and looked across at Brady wearing another team’s jersey, let alone ever had a chance to tackle him.

Tampa Bay’s 34.3 points per game are also tied for tops in the NFL, thanks largely to one of the most stacked offenses in the league that includes receivers Chris Godwin, Mike Evans and tight end Rob Gronkowski.

When is the Bucs-Patriots game?

The game between the Patriots and Bucs is set for 7:20 p.m. (8:20 p.m. ET) on Sunday, Oct. 3.

Will it be live streamed?

The game will be live streamed on fuboTV, which offers a 7-day free trial. The most basic of plans is the “fubo standard” package, which comprises 100-plus channels for $64.99 per month. Like all cord-cutting alternatives, there are plenty of options, especially for sports.

What TV channel will broadcast the game?

The Patriots-Bucs game will be broadcast on NBC.


ELITE CLUB: A victory would make Brady the fourth quarterback with wins against all 32 NFL teams, joining Brett Favre, Drew Brees and Peyton Manning. With 68 yards passing Brady will surpass Brees’ mark of 80,358 yards, most ever in the regular season. It would add to his long list of NFL records that already includes most TD passes (591), most wins as a starting quarterback (232), most Super Bowl titles (seven), and most conference championships (10).

SHAQ ATTACK: For all the talk about what Brady’s arrival in Tampa Bay did for the offense, the defense has been a big part of the team’s success, too. In addition to leading the league in rushing defense each of the past two seasons, the Bucs have had one of the league’s most effective pass rushes since Todd Bowles was hired as coordinator in 2019.

Linebacker Shaquil Barrett topped the NFL with 19 1/2 sacks two years ago and finished with eight during the regular season in 2020. He has one through three games this year, none the past two weeks.

As a team, the Bucs are last in the league with three sacks.

“I think Todd knows and Shaq knows it’s time to get to the quarterback,” coach Bruce Arians said. “Just one sack is not good enough.”

FIRST IMPRESSIONS: Arians is noted for his success working with quarterbacks over a long career as a NFL assistant and head coach. Manning, Ben Roethlisberger, Andrew Luck, Carson Palmer and Jameis Winston are among the high draft picks Arians mentored over the years.

The coach, who turns 69 on Sunday, likes what he’s seen so far from New England rookie Mac Jones.

“I loved him coming out. He’s smart, a pocket player who’s going to get the ball out, and he’s very accurate,” Arians said. “Obviously, pressure doesn’t bother him. He played in some big games (at Alabama). He led his team to the championship so, yeah, he’s legit.”

DON’T FORGET GRONK: Brady’s return has in many ways overshadowed that of Gronkowski, who spent nine seasons (2010-18) with New England and ended his tenure with 521 receptions for 7,861 yards and 79 touchdowns, the most receiving TDs in franchise history.

He enters Sunday with 8,668 receiving yards and can surpass Greg Olsen (8,683) for the fifth-most receiving yards by a tight end in NFL history.

Gronk originally retired following the 2018 season after winning a third Super Bowl ring with the Patriots before being coaxed out of retirement by Brady in 2020.

No exaggeration, this may be the most hyped-up regular season NFL game in decades, if not all time.

Tom Brady will be making his return as the quarterback of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers to face the Patriots after he spent 20 seasons in New England leading the Pats to unprecedented success with Bill Belichick as his coach. Led by Belichick and Brady, the Patriots made nine Super Bowl appearances, winning six championships. Brady won four Super Bowl MVPs with the Pats and also took three regular-season NFL MVP awards, was named to 14 Pro Bowls and was a three-time all-pro.

In his first season with the Bucs, Brady added to his trophy haul, as Tampa won Super Bowl 55 and Brady won his record fifth Super Bowl MVP award. Now, New England will have a chance to show that it can move on from Brady.

Both sides know each other intimately, which should make this a fascinating case of teacher versus pupil.

And, as if all that wasn’t enough, there’s another historical event in this game that should almost certainly happen: Brady is just 68 yards shy of surpassing former Saints quarterback Drew Brees’ all-time record of 80,358 passing yards.
