Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers will face Bill Belichick and the New England Patriots on Sunday night, and it's considered one of the most anticipated games in NFL history. And in order to get fans ready for the matchup, NBC released a promo that featured the Adele song "Hello."
While NBC is looking to get fans emotional before the game, Brady's focus is on winning and nothing else. "I'm not going to necessarily reminisce," Brady said, on the podcast Let's Go! this week."I don't think this is the moment for that. I'll have plenty of opportunities to reminisce about my football career — none of it, none of which I really care to do right now because I'm so much in the moment. I'm not going to be thinking about 20 years of history. I'm going to be thinking about one night of football, a Sunday night game coming off a really tough loss."
Brady spent his first 20 seasons with the Patriots before signing with the Buccaneers in March 2020. In his first season with the Buccaneers, Brady led the team to a Super Bowl win. Here's a look at fans reacting to the promo.
They used Adele to tease Tom Brady's return vs. the Patriots 😂pic.twitter.com/QAt7kyLK4u— The Sporting News (@sportingnews) September 27, 2021
Here's a look at the promo. One person wrote: "Amen! We won't see the likes of Brady again anytime soon Just glad we are getting to live this real time. Just like I'm so glad I grew up when the Beatles were putting out their masterpieces in the 1960s. Enjoy!"prevnext
Is it Real?
NBC ran a promo for Tom Brady’s return to Foxboro set to Adele…
I sincerely cannot decide if this is brilliant or I just can’t believe it’s real. pic.twitter.com/fNRJKS0Oce— Carmen Vitali (@CarmieV) September 27, 2021
Another person wrote: "I honestly never thought I would see Brady walk into Foxboro as a 'visitor', and that alone has my heart. I don't know how I'm going to make it through this week, and I already regret not taking Monday off."prevnext

The Adele "Hello" commercial for Tom Brady is hilarious. I wish they'd left in the verses like Tom, did you ever make it out of that town where nothing ever happens??— Akilah Hughes (@AkilahObviously) September 27, 2021
A fan said: "Whoever thought of this needs to be moved to the SNL writing team. I guffawed and I never guffaw."prevnext
Did the NFL just use “Hello” by Adele for their Tom Brady/Patriots game next week… pic.twitter.com/qjjoRT9ExH— Madison Williams (@madisonwsports) September 27, 2021
