After winning six Super Bowls as part of the No.1 dynasty in NFL history, Tom Brady has left the New England Patriots. The greatest quarterback of all time will have a new home for the 2020 NFL season, signing with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in free agency.

Even in a disappointing 2019 campaign, the Patriots still managed to go 12-4 and win the AFC East title. The Buccaneers missed the playoffs with a 7-9 record, finishing below .500 for a third straight year.

Maybe Brady’s departure from New England will help close the gap between the two teams.

Expectations for the Patriots and Buccaneers are similar next season. Bettors can wager on which team will have a better record in 2020 at FanDuel Sportsbook, and the sportsbook gives both New England and Tampa Bay -110 odds. The over/under win total for both teams is 9.5.

The Patriots have won 11 straight AFC East championships. New England last won fewer than 10 games in the 2002 season, which was Brady’s first year as the Week 1 starter.

Jarrett Stidham is the overwhelming favorite to be the Patriots’ starting quarterback in Week 1. The second-year player has never started an NFL game.

Jameis Winston led the NFL in passing yards and ranked second in touchdowns as the Bucs’ quarterback in 2020. He also led the league in interceptions and set a record with seven pick-sixes.

Only three teams gave up fewer points than Tampa Bay last season. Much of that had to do with Winston’s mistakes. The Bucs ranked 15th in yards allowed and seventh in opponents’ yards per plays.

New England had the league’s No.1 defense in 2019.

Brady threw 22 fewer interceptions than Winston last season. The 42-year-old has had the NFL’s lowest interception rate in three of the last eight years.

Tampa Bay last made the playoffs in 2007. The Bucs haven’t won a postseason game since the 2002 season when the franchise won its first and only Super Bowl.
