New England Patriots divulge how they will honor Tom Brady when he breaks record on Sunday

You probably have not heard this yet (sarcasm) but on Sunday Night Football, Tom Brady will be back in his old stomping grounds when he and his Tampa Bay Buccaneers teammates are in Gillette Stadium to take on the New England Patriots.

Heading into the game Brady needs just 68 passing yards to set a new NFL record, and according to a report from Adam Schefter, the Patriots will not stop the game for a ceremony but they will pause the game to honor Brady’s accomplishment.

From ESPN:

If Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady sets the NFL career passing record Sunday night against his former team, and he needs only 68 yards to do it, the New England Patriots will pause to acknowledge the achievement but will not stop the game for a ceremony, according to a team official.

The Patriots are expected to briefly acknowledge Brady’s accomplishment, but what unfolds in Foxborough, Massachusetts, on Sunday night if Brady sets the NFL mark will stand in stark contrast to how the New Orleans Saints treated Drew Brees when he set the record in 2018.

Will you be watching tonight’s game?
