We’ve known since May that this was homecoming week for Tom Brady to Foxboro. It’s getting so much hype that the Today Show and NBC Nightly News will be broadcasting live from Gillette. Brady or Belichick? Who was responsible? The matchup looks like a mismatch on paper between teams but something could be hidden up those cut-off sleeves.
But wait there is more! The final Weekend of MLB with an AL Wild Card Race that could end in a four-way tie. The Yankees have a 2 game edge and take on a Tampa team that has sealed the top seed in the AL. Do they go all out this weekend? The Red Sox battle the Nationals in interleague play to end the season. The Sox have just lost 2 out of 3 to the lowly Orioles after a weekend sweep at Fenway by the aforementioned Yankees. The Seattle Mariners are smoking hot. They’ve eliminated the Oakland A’S from the battle royal. Finally, the up and coming Blue Jays take on the Orioles in Toronto. The cool part Sunday, all games start at 3pm. So you have this to keep an eye on all weekend.

How did No. 7 Cincinnati arrive at the biggest game in school history at ND this week? @YahooSports spent a week all-access with the Bearcats to see how it all came together — hot coach, star QB and the most precious opportunity to crash the Playoff. https://t.co/8kPhGppttP pic.twitter.com/CcnBLtpnk6 — Pete Thamel (@PeteThamel) September 29, 2021
Lurking as a sneaky quality game in the Sunday 1pm NFL window is the Carolina Panthers heading to Dallas to take on the Cowboys. The Cowboys come off a short week and beatdown of Philly. The Panthers have 10 days off and come in McCaffrey-less to the big D. This should be an intriguing matchup, Remember the name Chuba Hubbard. The real best game of the day (sorry Tom and Bill) is the Rams hosting the Cardinals at 4:05pm. Aaron Donald chasing around Kyler Murray in the battle of undefeated teams.
