If Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady sets the NFL all-time passing report Sunday night versus his previous group, and he requirements only 68 yards to do it, the New England Patriots will pause to admit it but not stop the sport for a ceremony, per a group formal.
The Patriots are envisioned to briefly acknowledge Brady’s accomplishment. But what unfolds in Foxborough, Massachusetts on Sunday night time if Brady sets the NFL’s all-time passing mark will stand in stark distinction to how the New Orleans Saints addressed Drew Brees when he set the report.
The Saints stopped the recreation, Brees’ loved ones came on to the discipline, the Pro Football Hall of Fame’s David Baker was there to get the soccer, and the whole house stadium celebrated.
Gillette Stadium could possibly rejoice Sunday night time as properly, but the recognition will be quick, as the video game will go on without interruption just after acknowledging Brady’s feat.
Brady at present is at 80,291 passing yards, chasing the record that Brees retains with 80,358.
But Brady’s passing document will not be the only exclusive element of what could possibly be the most hyped and predicted standard-time video game in NFL historical past.
The Patriots have issued 506 media qualifications for the match, including 262 for NBC, which is broadcasting the activity. For point of view, the Patriots issued 206 overall media qualifications for the team’s time-opener against the Miami Dolphins on Sept. 12, with 70 heading to broadcaster CBS. Last 7 days versus the Saints, the Patriots issued 215 credentials (together with 60 for broadcaster Fox).
The Patriots also have two dozen previous alumni attending the game, together with previous Brady teammates these types of as Ty Legislation, Deion Branch, Joe Andruzzi and Jarvis Inexperienced.
But just as there’s all types of anticipation in New England, the identical is accurate in Tampa all around the Buccaneers. “Everyone’s enjoying it off as an additional activity, but it truly is not just a further game,” one Buccaneers’ official claimed this weekend.
