Brady vs. Brees: A matchup for the ages and aged
(AP Photo/Julio Cortez)The NFL has never seen a playoff matchup quite like the upcoming one between Tom Brady’s Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Drew Brees’ New Orleans Saints. Brees has thrown for more yards than any QB in the regular season with 80,358 and ranks second in TD passes with 571. Brady holds the mark for touchdowns with 581 and trails only Brees in yardage with 79,204. The combined age of the starting quarterbacks will be an NFL-record 85, surpassing the 84 from their two starts in the regular season this season. The team that swept the regular season series won 14 of the previous 22 matchups, which bodes well for the Saints this week.

According to coach Doug Marrone, the Jaguars did their best to deal Fournette, but couldnt even get a Day 3 draft pick in return. #Truth barstoolsports #BarstoolPrime Im https://t.co/KNU0ttARS5 Deion Sanders (@DeionSanders) August 31, 2020The Jaguars running back room is lean on experience now.
