Tom Brady looks to continue dominant stretch against rookie QBs
Tom Brady has been ridiculously good against rookie quarterbacks for the last several years and he’s looking to keep that going.
Brady’s Buccaneers are taking on the Chicago Bears where rookie Justin Fields took over the starting job a few weeks ago. Fields outplayed Andy Dalton when he came in relief for him and head coach Matt Nagy saw enough to have him continue to start.
Coming into this matchup, Brady has won his last 10 starts against rookie quarterbacks, which trails only Ben Roethlisberger and Len Dawson for the longest streak since the stat started being tracked.
