Week 4 @New England Patriots (Sunday Night)


Tom Brady, Bill Belichick, the NFL, and probably the world have already circled this game on their calendars. Brady going back to the house he built in Foxboro to take on Bill Belichick and the New England Patriots. Simply put, this is the most anticipated football game of the entire season.

It’s easy to predict that Brady will put up out-of-this-world numbers en route to a Bucs romp of the Patriots. After all, he is the greatest of all time because he’s the most competitive person on the planet. Now, Brady may get his, and the Buccaneers should win, but let’s not act like this is any old coach.

This is Belichick. As fired up as Brady will be, Belichick will be just as much so. That’s why this game is so hotly anticipated. The debate has been raging for years now over who deserved the majority of the credit for the Patriots dynasty between Brady and Belichick. The coach or the quarterback. It can’t be both because in America we love to #EmbraceDebate, especially when it comes to sports. When it comes to that argument, this game will be very telling to many.

The should be an all-out war, and eyeballs will be glued to the screen. This is the clear-cut most anticipated primetime game for the Buccaneers and is the most anticipated and typed regular-season game in years.

Every game is anticipated. That’s the beauty, and pain, of the offseason. We’re excited to have Buccaneers football back in their quest to “go for two”, whether it’s primetime or not. Still, it’ll be fun having this many games in front of a national audience.
