Brady has thrown for 1,375 yards with 14 TDs against four interceptions. However, he will need to put in a ‘near-perfect’ display in order to beat the Aaron Rodgers-led Green Bay Packers this weekend.

The Packers are yet to taste defeat in the NFL this season. 36-year-old Aaron Rodgers is already a leader in the race for the NFL MVP award along with Russell Wilson. So can Tom Brady do in order to beat the favorites?

Tom Brady ‘needs’ to win against Aaron Rodgers-led Green Bay Packers

A former Pittsburgh Steelers player, Ryan Clark, appeared on the latest installment of ESPN’s Get Up. He went on a lengthy rant citing why Tom Brady is in a ‘must-win’ scenario against the Packers.

Should the Buccaneers fail to win, it might be time to press the proverbial ‘panic button’ in Tampa Bay. “If this is a team that’s going to compete for a Super Bowl, you need healthy weapons.

“There’s no Godwin, Mike Evans is banged up, OJ Howard is out for the season. Now, we’re gonna have to see Tom Brady make things happen with a little lesser Arsenal than we expected.

“This is going to be a huge week..what he (Tom Brady) can do with the back-end of the Packers, is important. Because is they lose this game, I believe it’s time to press the panic button in Tampa Bay.

“They had a great opportunity to take hold of the NFC South and they aren’t doing that. They’ve now fallen back to the pack. If the Packers win this week, I think there’s big trouble in Tampa Bay,” Clark said on the show.
