We’ve had a few days now to look over and digest the New England Patriots’ 2016 regular season schedule. Now, let’s take a look at the six most exciting games:
6. Week 11 @ San Francisco 49ers
No, the 49ers aren’t scaring anybody right now, but this will be a highly anticipated game because it will be Tom Brady’s first visit (as a starter) to the team he grew up cheering for in his illustrious career. The last time the Patriots went to San Fran, it was 2008 and Matt Cassel was at the helm; the time before that was in 2000, and Brady was a little-known backup.
Brady may be drinking from a fountain of youth, but you can’t expect him to still be playing in 2024, the next time the Patriots travel to San Francisco. In other words, this will almost certainly be Brady’s first and last start at Levi’s Stadium.
Look for the Patriots to spread it out and let Brady tear it up in this game.
Next: Week 3 vs. Houston Texans
