The Buccaneers’ wild win over the Patriots on Sunday allowed Tom Brady to not only exact revenge on his former team, but also to join a very elite club. With the win, Brady joins Peyton Manning, Drew Brees, and Brett Favre as the only quarterbacks in NFL history to defeat all 32 teams.
Tom Brady tells which NFL team he would most like to beat and it isn’t the Patriots
Now that Brady has beaten every team at least once, Jim Gray, Brady’s co-host on the “Let’s Go!” podcast, had a very interesting question for him on the most recent edition (Seriously, Brady has his own podcast). Gray asked Brady during Monday’s broadcast which team he prefers to beat. Brady could have said the Rams (who he’s beaten twice in the Super Bowl), the Falcons (who he’s 9-0 all-time against, including that thrilling triumph in Super Bowl LI), or even the Bills (who he’s beaten 32 times), but he didn’t. Brady told Pro Football Talk, “Holy cow, that’s a fantastic question.” “The Giants are the club I’d most like to beat, without a sure, since they’ve taken away some really good players. I’ve always joked with Eli [Manning] about it, but I think he appreciates it when I bring it up all the time. So, to bring it up again, I despise losing to those guys, so it makes me happy when we beat them.” Brady’s answer is THE NEW YORK GIANTS, as you can see. The answer makes sense, and it’s because Brady has a lengthy relationship with them.
Brady has a 5-1 regular-season record versus the Giants, including a spectacular Week 17 triumph in 2007 that propelled the Patriots to an undefeated season, but he also has two memorable Super Bowl defeats to them, the most infamous of which lost New England its undefeated season. Brady said in his documentary “Tom vs. Time” in 2018 that those two Super Bowl losses would likely haunt him for the rest of his life. “Those losses will never leave me. That scar tissue is just too deep and thick “Brady remarked. When it comes to the club Brady despises losing to, the answer is simple: the Patriots. “Obviously, the Patriots are the club I like to beat the least,” Brady remarked. “Those are my dudes again, man. Those are the other warriors with whom I spent so much time in battle. I’ve had a lot of fights with different clubs over the years, and there’s a lot of mutual respect in pro sports, but I’m pleased I’m done with this one [on Sunday].” The good news for Brady is that there’s a high possibility he won’t have to face the Patriots again in his career, though the new scheduling formula will make it conceivable. The earliest they may meet again is 2023, if they don’t meet in a Super Bowl. Brady would be 46 years old if he were still playing at that time.
