A small part of those who are reading this actually care about the New England Patriots and Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The rest of you are here for information about how you can watch Tom Brady return home to New England to take on his former team, led by his former coach Bill Belichick.

That is completely understandable.

So instead of waisting your time and telling you about all of the great matchups you will find in that game, let’s just tell you how you can follow along.
