Aaron Rodgers and Bryson DeChambeau defeated Brady and Phil Mickelson in the most recent edition of The Match, putting them 0-2 in the competition. This year, the format changes to an All-NFL affair. The old generation isn’t naïve to the concept, and they undoubtedly have some expertise.

Capital One’s ‘The Match’ is nearly a month away. But Tom Brady continues to get into his rival teammates’ heads. The Bucs quarterback re-shares a story posted by SportsIllustrated showcasing the NFLPA jersey merchandise & sales rankings. The rank showcases Tom Brady in #1, and Mahomes and Allen in #2 and #3, respectively.

Tom Brady takes a jab on Instagram Stories, mentioning, “Sorry [Patrick Mahomes] and [Josh Allen] this is gonna happen on June 1 as well in Vegas.”

Brady and Mickelson faced Peyton Manning and Tiger Woods in the second edition of the event in 2020. However, the team of the NFL’s greatest quarterback lost both games. He’ll be back for his third installment with a winning mentality. Foresee the Buccaneers’ quarterback to be just as cutthroat off the field as he is on it. The televised 12-hole exhibition match-up will take place at Wynn Las Vegas.

The Wisconsin State Golf Association gives Rodgers a 4.6 handicap. Mahomes also plays in the American Century Championship celebrity golf tournament on a regular basis, and he did so last summer. Golf.com reports the Chiefs quarterback has a 7.7 handicap. Furthermore, with a 9.0 handicap, Buffalo Bills quarterback Josh Allen competed in the PGA Tour’s AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am in February.

This forthcoming edition of ‘The Match’ will serve as a good trial process to determine if it can stand like this without a professional golfer. If this is the case, maybe the sky’s the limit.
