Tom Brady makes his much-awaited return to Foxborough.

Brady left the New England Patriots for greener pastures and led the Tampa Bay Buccaneers to a Super Bowl. The Bucs are 2-1 in their title defense after a hard-fought loss to the Rams in Week 3. The offense has had fireworks, already posting 103 points in just three games.

Tonight, Brady faces Bill Belichick and a Patriots team entering a new era under Mac Jones. Jones has been the best rookie quarterback so far this season, but had his first real hiccup last week against the Saints. Three interceptions to just one touchdown led to the Patriots falling to 1-2. With the Buffalo Bills looking like a powerhouse in the AFC East, the Patriots need to keep pace. There would be no better victory than spoiling Brady’s return.

Here is how to watch tonight’s game:

Date: Sunday, October 3, 2021
Time: 8:20 p.m. ET
Location: Gillette Stadium—Foxborough, MA
Announcers: Al Michaels (play-by-play), Cris Collinsworth (analyst), Michele Tafoya (sidelines)
