Even dating back to the college days, the head to head match-up between Drew Brees and Tom Brady has always been a coin flip.
The two ageless wonders are 3-3 all-time against one another, but never have they ever done battle as divisional foes until this weekend.
A game inside a game as the New Orleans Saints and Tampa Bay Buccaneers now give us an NFC South clash featuring two GOATS for the price of one.
Brady has six Super Bowl titles, entering his age 43 season, widely regarded as the Greatest of All Time. However, he’s still chasing Brees in both career passing yards and touchdowns, leaving the 41-year-old Brees as the statistical GOAT at least for the time being.
But all of that comes second to the here and now of not only wining Sunday’s game, but also taking down a common enemy. Brees said, “I’ve got a ton of respect for Tom and all that he’s accomplished in his career. I’m sure he’s pretty rejuvenated being down there and having the opportunity with the new team and obviously he’s got a great team around him, a lot of good skill position players and a really good defense as well. So they’re in the division now, so we’re both fighting for the same thing. I’ve always used the term prolong your prime. At the end of the day that’s what we’re trying to do. Father Time is going to get us at some point, but we’re trying to beat him out right now.”
Sunday’s game kicks off at 3:25 p.m. from the Mercedes-Benz Superdome.
