Tom Brady will go up against the New England Patriots in 2021

As per the official league schedule, Bruce Arians-coached Tampa Bay Buccaneers will take on the mighty New England Patriots in the 2021 NFL season. In almost fairytale fashion, Brady will go up against his former employers and more importantly, his long-term mentor and ‘friend’ Bill Belichick.

The pair led the Patriots to six Super Bowl titles over a period of 20 years. They shared a father-son relationship as compared to that of a coach and quarterback. But Tom Brady wanted a new challenge at the age of 43 which is what led him to Florida.

The rest as they say is history.

This season, Brady will have the chance to join the likes of Drew Brees, Peyton Manning, and Brett Favre as the only players to beat all 32 teams in the NFL. Brady already has wins against 31 teams in the big league.

Patriots are the last team remaining on this list. The Buccaneers will do everything in their might to help Brady join this elite group of players when the season begins in September.

A win against his former organization will definitely be the icing on the cake of what has been a distinguished career in the NFL.
