BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — For the first time in the 2021 season, Tom Brady will face the New England Patriots on October 3.
On Wednesday night, the NFL released all 32 teams' schedules.
The Patriots will host the Buccaneers at Gillette Stadium in Week 4, and Tom Brady shared his thoughts on the matchup.
Brady and Rob Gronkowski both spent their entire NFL careers with the Patriots prior to joining the Buccaneers last offseason.
To see this prime-time game, you will need to save your pennies as the demand for tickets is already at an all-time high.
John Higgins, the owner of Higs Tickets, told WBZ-TV, "it could be close to $1,000 just to get into the nosebleeds upstairs."
However, many fans told WBZ NewsRadio's James Rojas that they would not be willing to cough up that much money to see the game in-person.
"I don't know if I'd pay that much if I could watch it on TV," a fan stated.
In Foxborough, it is possible that Brady could set a all-time passing record; as of now, Brady is just 1,155 yards away from passing Drew Brees for the all-time NFL record for passing yards.
For Brady to get to that record, he will need to average 288.75 yards in the first four games. Last season, he averaged 333.3 passing yards in that time.
