With the release of the Patriots 2021 schedule and the much anticipated date finally released of the return of Tom Brady to Gillette stadium in a Tampa Bay uniform set for October 3rd, tickets are already skyrocketing.  According to reports a single ticket on the 50-yard line is selling for $12,000.  Some of the cheaper tickets are going for $1,150 per ticket. The million dollar question is now will Brady face Cam Newton or the Patriots #1 draft pick Mac Jones.

Brady's dad, Tom Brady Sr., is already talking smack.  He called into the Patriots' flagship station and said "I saw the schedule come out last night, and I starting salivating when I saw that we play the Patriots in the fourth game of the season, and we're coming up here to make our record 4-0."  He added "we expect to beat the Patriots rather handily."  The matchup between the Patriots and Brady will be featured on the NBC Sunday Night Game of the Week on October 3rd.
