Future NFL Hall of Famer Tom Brady will likely receive a bunch of “F*** Tom Brady!” chants when he returns to Lincoln Financial Field in Philly tonight for a Thursday Night Football game between his Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the Philadelphia Eagles. The feelings apparently will not be mutual.
Brady is undefeated as a visiting quarterback at Lincoln Financial Field, and 4-1 all-time against Philly. He has thrown for 1,524 yards, 10 touchdowns and 2 picks against the Eagles. That 3-0 record at Lincoln Financial Field includes 6 touchdowns and 0 interceptions. These stats show that despite the hardcore heckling from the rabid Philly fanbase, Brady does not get rattled.
Brady took the high road and had nothing to say about the Philly fans when asked his thoughts at a press conference earlier this week. Associated Press NFL writer Rob Maaddi asked Brady what he thinks about the Philly fans, and not only did he praise the Eagles fanbase, he also revealed what he thinks about Lincoln Financial Field.
They do a good job. They love their team. I’ve played there quite a few times over the years and it’s a great football stadium.
While some players and teams are shook by the intense Philly crowd, Brady apparently is not intimidated at all, or maybe Eagles fans need to step it up and try harder when it comes to the six-time Super Bowl Champion.
Tonight’s conference match-up between the Bucs (4-1) and the Eagles (2-3) is the first game of the Week 6 NFL schedule. Nick Sirianni and the Eagles will look to knock off the defending Super Bowl Champions at home to improve to 3-3 on the year, while Brady and the Buccaneers will look to improve their record as they go into the game ranking second in points per game with 33.4.
The Bucs are currently a seven-point favorite in the latest Thursday Night Football odds from Caesars Sportsbook.
