Tom Brady’s long-anticipated return to Foxborough, where he spent 20 seasons with the New England Patriots, is set for tonight on Sunday Night Football. Live coverage begins at 7:00 p.m. ET with Football Night in America. Tonight’s match-up will also be available via live stream on Peacock.
The Buccaneers, who returned all 22 starters from last year, are 2-1 entering Week 4. The Bucs are aiming to become the first team to repeat as Super Bowl champions since Brady’s Patriots accomplished the feat in the 2003 and 2004 seasons. This has been achieved just 8 times in NFL history. Check out the list of repeat Super Bowl winners below.
Brady, who is now in his 22nd season, turned 44 in August and is only getting better with age. Last year, in addition to picking up his seventh Super Bowl win–the most from any quarterback in NFL history–Brady set a franchise record with 40 pass TDs, his second-most in a single season since 2007.
With all the history already on his balance sheet, Brady is in line to accomplish even more this season, and he could do it in familiar territory. Brady needs just 68 passing yards today to pass Drew Brees as the league’s all-time leader at Gillette Stadium in tonight’s matchup vs the Patriots.
