American football quarterback Tom Brady is a well-known player if you are a fan of the National Football League. He spent the first twenty seasons of his National Football League with the New England Patriots before transferring to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. 

During his time with the New England Patriots, Tom Brady made quite a name for himself. He was one of the major contributors to the franchise’s dynasty spanning 18 years from 2001 to 2019. 

However, the moment Tom Brady joined the Tampa Bay Buccaneers; he found himself a new rival. This rival is the New Orleans Saints team which had 42-years-old Drew Brees as their leading quarterback in 2020.

Tom Brady’s Nemesis: Drew Brees and the New Orleans Saints

First things first, this isn’t what Tom Brady had signed up for initially. When he left the AFC East, he expected a smooth sailing towards retirement, which would result in an easy walk to a couple of Super Bowl wins for the NFC South. This would also bring some high-profile free agents eager to represent him. 

Earlier, Tom Brady did get lucky to beat Drew Brees in the record worst game of the New Orleans Saints’ career and made an advance towards the title last season. Now, his hopes of winning the division rest with the Atlanta Falcons trying to pull off a win against the Saints in the upcoming weeks. 

NFL betting platforms are abuzz with fans of the two teams or football fans, in general, queueing up to place a bet on either the football hero Brady or his arch-rival. 

Since Tom Brady switched conferences, no registered National Football League team has given him a hard time than the New Orleans Saints. They have become the 44-year-old American QB’s Arch-Nemesis. 

The New Orleans Saints are one of a kind; their form and defense have completely sacked American football hero Tom Brady. They have intercepted his performance several times and forced more fumbles out of him than anyone in National Football League history, and this includes their 3-1 record against the popularly dubbed “Greatest Of All Time” Tom Brady. 

The loyal fans of the New Orleans Saints have also remarked that in his matches against the Saints, Tom Brady looks more like a goat, rather than the GOAT. This is a pretty insulting remark given Tom Brady’s legacy, but the facts remain true. 

Jameis Winston is rumored to be the newest starter for the New Orleans Saints in securing a key divisional win against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 8 of the NFL. Still, of course, that will be no easy task against the one and only Tom Brady. 

Saints Vs. Buccaneers: Tom Brady’s Record Against The New Orleans Saints

The matchups here are limited because Tom Brady played in the AFC for quite a long time; however, he does own a 4-3 regular-season mark over the New Orleans Saints. He was also able to win last year’s National Football League postseason, which sent Brees into supposed retirement. 

Fans and spectators have noted that Tom Brady’s recent performance against the Saints has been nothing like it was in the past. Unfortunately, Tom Brady’s lifelong dream of winning a Super Bowl in Tampa Bay was off to a rough start upon his arrival, followed by a Week One loss to the New Orleans Saints in early 2020. 

Further, the team, along with Tom Brady, hit rock bottom with their Week Nine 38-3 defeat at the hands of the Saints. This was not only shameful for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, but nothing like they have experienced before in the history of the franchise in the National Football League. 

Later, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers also ended up falling all the way 7-5 before winning out the route to an acclaimed Super Bowl title. Among the postseason casualties was the New Orleans Saints in the Divisional Round. 

In that match, Tom Brady was only able to throw 199 yards, meanwhile Drew Brees managed three interceptions in the 30-20 Bucs victory. 

The NFC South Divison cannot be an automatic victory for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The true nemesis rivalry between Tom Brady and the New Orleans Saints is tough to form now, especially with Brees gone now (he only showed up last year in Florida). Nonetheless, a New Orleans Saints victory is destined to serve as a wake-up call for Tom Brady and the whole National Football League. 

Both the National Football League teams were coming off wins last week and definitely have fresh expectations of winning. Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers will enter the following and upcoming matchup with a 6-1 record. On the other hand, the New Orleans Saints still sit at 4-2. 

Throughout his phenomenal career, Tom Brady has been accustomed to asserting his dominance over his divisional opponents. Jameis Winston will be one of the players hoping to spoil the party and tarnish Tom Brady’s mood as he has his own revenge game planned against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. News sources claim that Jameis Winston still believes that he could have been the one to lead the Tampa Bay Buccaneers to glory, but alas. 

Many exciting things will happen as Tom Brady tried his best to keep himself and his team on track and focused on climbing the National Football League mountaintop. 

Previously, the only team that successfully confounded Tom Brady during his twenty-year dominance in the AFC division was the Denver Broncos. They used to be the only team with a winning record against him and the team he was playing at the time, while he was winning six rings with the New England Patriots. The Denver Broncos were the Longtime Patriots Nemesis of Tom Brady. 

Among these, Mike Shanahan was the only head coach who beat Tom Brady six times. Denver even took three of four from Brady in the playoffs in the AFC championship behind Peyton Manning. But, the New Orleans Saints have become Brady’s new kryptonite.
