The NFL had a huge shakeup this year, when the undisputed GOAT, Tom Brady left the New England Patriots, and joined the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He brought with him, one of the greatest TEs of all time. The buccaneers immediately became Super Bowl Contenders, and now have one of the most potent offenses in the entire league, a defense that improved over the course of the year, and a QB who won’t throw 30 picks in 1 year.
Meanwhile the Saints are coming of another season, where they underperformed yet again in the playoffs. They won 13 games, and shockingly had to play on Wild Card Weekend, where they lost to the Minnesota Vikings, in OT thriller. Both teams face of twice this season, as brady is now in the same division, and they even kick of their season against each other. 2 of the Greatest Qbs of all time, going at it twice, with loaded rosters, elite coaches.
2 legends facing off twice a year? What more could you ask for as a Football fan?
