4. Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Had Tom Brady not unretired after spending maybe an entire week away from football, the Buccaneers probably don’t make this list. I’m only including them here because it’d give the entire nation a chance to see Brady and Joe Burrow go head-to-head for what could be the only time in Burrow’s career.
With Brady playing in the NFC and likely being at the end of his career (we can only hope), unless these two teams meet in the Super Bowl (entirely possible), this might be the only chance we get to see Burrow v. Brady and that’s why it needs to be in primetime.
Burrow has been getting compared to Brady in his young career and it’s not hard to see why. Anthony Cosenza of Cincy Jungle spoke with Mike Petraglia of CLNS Media and discussed some similarities ranging from how they act off the field to how they’re both elite at reading defenses.
I don’t care about any other aspect of this matchup. I simply want to see Burrow go head-to-head with Brady and beat him. If he’s able to do that, he can always point to the scoreboard and say he went 1-0 against Tom Brady. Why not do it in primetime?
