TAMPA BAY (CBS) – The Tom Brady era officially gets underway for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday as the quarterback takes the field in a non-Patriots jersey for the first time. Sunday morning, Brady debuted his social media hype video game.
Brady, Rob Gronkowski and the rest of the Bucs will take center stage at 4:25 p.m. when they face fellow star veteran Drew Brees and the New Orleans Saints.
There are sure to be plenty of eyes on the star-studded matchup. For the majority of the country, the Brady-Brees showdown is the national game of the week.
Brady posted his signature hype video on social media to mark the occasion. Announcers can be heard in the background declaring the end of the Patriots dynasty and wondering what comes next.
“What am I going to do now? Because I can’t sit here and give up. It’s not an option,” a narrator says.

The hype video concludes with “LFG” and “Year 1. Week 1.”
When the Bucs take the field, Brady may have one of his key weapons, even if it’s in a limited capacity. Wide receiver Mike Evans was initially listed as doubtful with a hamstring injury, but has since been upgraded to questionable.
Evans is now reportedly likely to play, but may reportedly be on a “pitch count.”
As for Brady’s former team, the Patriots usher in a new era as well when Cam Newton leads New England against the Miami Dolphins at Gillette Stadium with a 1 p.m. kickoff.
