Tom Brady-led Tampa Bay Buccaneers succumbed to a humbling 24-34 loss at the hands of the Los Angeles Rams in Week 3. The Bucs were without a loss heading into the game. However, Matthew Stafford put up a dominant display to down the reigning champions by a 10-point deficit.

But if the past is a warning then Tom Brady is not a happy man right now. The 44-year old veteran hates losing. But with former coach Bill Belichick and the New England Patriots awaiting him at Foxborough this weekend, there’s no time to rest for the old warhorse.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers favorites heading into Week 4 of NFL season

Bill Belichick helped guide the New England Patriots to 6 Super Bowl titles over a period of 20 years. The Bucs have just 2, the second coming last season with Tom Brady as their starter. But a recent graph report by Boston Herald’s Megan Ottolini is backing the veteran to down his former side ahead of this week’s epic clash.

All eyes will be on the battle of wits between Brady and Belichick. Together, the pair wreaked havoc on NFL defenses for almost two decades. Now they go head-to-head against each other for the first time, in what seems like a long, long time.

But another story that will be written on the sidelines is that of rookie quarterback Mac Jones. The CFP National Championship-winning youngster has been impressive during his debut season. But he just has one win to his name from 3 games.

A win against a legend like Brady will do wonders for his confidence and vice versa. It might even be poetic, like TB12 handing over the throne to his successor. But all of this is hypothetical for now.
