Tom Brady can be part of an elite group of quarterbacks in 2021

Over the course of his 21-year career in the NFL, the legendary Tom Brady has written and re-written multiple league records. He can add to that tally in the coming season and join some of the greatest quarterbacks as part of an elite group.

Since joining the NFL in 2000, Brady has gone on to beat 31 of the 32 teams in the NFL. The only team left to cross out on that list is his former organization, New England Patriots.

The Buccaneers and Patriots play once every 4 years. They are scheduled to meet in 2021, which gives Brady a shot at adding another record to his already impressive CV.

But TB12 will be keen to join this club, especially with the underlying motivation coming from his desire to prove former coach Bill Belichick wrong.

Fans will have to wait until the 2021 NFL season schedule is released to find out the exact date for this event. As per reports, the league will release the fixture plan for each team in May.
