Tom Brady – QB

Tom Brady may be old as hell, but he’s arguably the greatest quarterback to ever play the game. Even at his advanced age, Brady is still extremely dangerous and is one of the smartest quarterbacks in the league.

Elite weapons surround Brady in the passing game, and he has been using targets like Mike Evans, Chris Godwin, and Rob Gronkowski to prove he’s ageless. The G.O.A.T. has thrown for 3,300 yards, 28 touchdowns, and 11 interceptions so far this season.

Brady isn’t going to rush for many yards, but he’s got great pocket awareness, and he can elude pressure by knowing when to step up in the pocket. He also knows when to throw the ball away and is quick to process what the defense is doing.

That is going to be the biggest problem for the Vikings secondary on Sunday. Minnesota has two elite safeties, but Brady will probably look to take advantage of the inexperience of their corners.

Brady will undoubtedly make Cameron Dantzler, Kris Boyd, and company think he is doing one thing, and then he’ll end up doing the opposite. His experience and savvy will be a major advantage in this game.

The Vikings will need to make sure Harrison Smith is out there communicating to the young corners to ensure they are lined-up right and ready for what Brady is planning to do.
