In Sunday’s Buccaneers-Bears game, 44-year-old Tom Brady and 22-year-old Justin Fields will set a new NFL record for the largest age gap between starting quarterbacks.

It’s not an old record. The previous record was Tom Brady vs. Mac Jones three weeks ago. Jones had just turned 23.

Before Brady and Jones faced off, the record for the largest age gap between starting quarterbacks was set last year, when Brady and the Buccaneers played Justin Herbert and the Chargers.

And the age gap record can be broken once again on January 2, when the Buccaneers face the Jets and rookie quarterback Zach Wilson, who is five months younger than Fields. Wilson was born on Brady’s 22nd birthday.

  1. As long as the margin of victory for the Bucs isn’t the largest in history I count that as a win for the Bears. But at home and with payback on his mind I think TB12 will be devastatingly on point Sunday.

  2. Yeah sure, keep starting the rookie kid QB against veteran MVP QB’s, that’s a plan for winning Bears!

  3. The Bears defense concussed Brady so bad last year he forgot which down it was and lost the game. This year the Bucs should be able to just run the football and win comfortably. The defense should be able to limit Fields.
