He will look to redeem himself with a convincing display against the reigning Super Bowl champions on Thanksgiving weekend.
Andy Reid’s Kansas City Chiefs remain the most-feared NFL team in the league. They are on an 8-1 record heading into Week 12. Their last loss came in Week 5 at the hands of their AFC West rivals, Las Vegas Raiders.
Here’s a detailed look at both teams, along with injury updates and Week 12 Game Day predictions.
Tom Brady will agree that his performance on Monday night against the Rams was far from his usual standards. The 43-year-old was brought to Florida in order to guide the Buccaneers to the Playoffs and possibly even a Super Bowl.
But the Bucs remain second in the NFC South Division table behind New Orleans Saints. Head coach Bruce Arians is banking on his big-name players such as Antonio Brown, Rob Gronkowski, Mike Evans, and Chris Godwin to come through on Sunday at the Raymond James Stadium.
The pressure will be on the Shaquill Griffin and Ndamukong Suh-led defense to stop the free-flowing Chiefs attack driven by Patrick Mahomes.
The Andy Reid-led Kansas City Chiefs have been in terrific form throughout the 2020 season. They will look to maintain their winning run with a strong display against the Buccaneers on Sunday.
Along with Mahomes, the rest of the Chiefs offense, including Travis Kelce, Tyreek Hill, Clyde Edward-Helaire, and Le’Veon Bell, will be looking to heap misery on the misfiring Buccaneers.
Coach Reid could be boosted by the return of experienced wide receiver Sammy Watkins in Week 12. The Bucs defense led by Frank Clark and Chris Jones will also be kept busy in Florida over the Thanksgiving weekend.

Tom Brady will be eager to prove a point against his doubters by bagging an unlikely win this weekend. But we don’t think that will be possible considering how the Chiefs have been performing recently.
