Tom Brady’s 143rd career regular-season game in Foxborough, Mass. won’t be like any of the others.

The NFL isn’t going to make its thirsty audience wait long for the most-talked-about game of the year: Brady will lead the Buccaneers into Gillette Stadium to face the Patriots on Oct. 3, according to multiple reports. Brady’s first trip to New England as a visitor is the Week 4 “Sunday Night Football” broadcast on NBC.

Brady won the first six of his seven Super Bowls with coach Bill Belichick and the Patriots during a 20-year run from the time he was a sixth-round draft pick in 2000 through 2019. He won his seventh with Bruce Arians and the Buccaneers last season.

Whether Brady and Belichick share a loving embrace or the frosty interaction of competitors remains to be seen, but Brady surely will be showered with appreciation from however many fans are permitted to be in the stands under state and local COVID-19 restrictions.

Who will be quarterbacking the Patriots then? Well, that’s anybody’s guess.

It could be Cam Newton. Or it could be Mac Jones, the first-round draft pick who enters the league with lofty comparisons to a young Brady based on his passing accuracy and football acumen.

Brady was 121-21 at home during the regular season as the Patriots starting quarterback. In his career between the two teams, he is no slouch on the road either, with a 104-47 career regular-season record.

Newton has his own, much-less-hyped Revenge Game on the schedule, too. If he is still starting Week 9, he will lead the Patriots against the Panthers in Charlotte.

Newton led Carolina to a Super Bowl appearance and won the 2015 NFL MVP, but he was unceremoniously cut and wound up as the Patriots’ replacement when Brady left in free agency in 2020.
