Tom Brady 2021-22 season stats

The last matchup between the two teams came all the way back in 2018, when QB Andy Dalton lead the Bengals to a 37-34 victory over Jameis Winston and the Bucs. With much different looks for both teams in 2022, expect them both to be among the top competitors in each Conference come the late-season matchup.
- Date: Sunday, December 18, 2022
- Kickoff: 4:25PM EST
- Location: Raymond James Stadium, Tampa, FL
- TV: CBS
Final: Bucs 30, Bengals 20
If it weren’t for Tom Brady’s quick un-retirement in the offseason, this score might be flipped; but nonetheless, Brady is back for season No. 23, and will lead a Bucs team that still features many players from its own Super Bowl run just a couple years ago.
While both teams have their own favorable matchups in key areas around the field, it is hard to bet against Brady at home, giving the Buccaneers a slight advantage in the first, and most likely last, meeting between the two superstar QBs.
