(Foxboro, MA) — A huge game tonight for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Tom Brady as he returns to his old stomping ground. Unfortunately, his favorite target, tight end Rob Gronkowski, will not joining him due to busted ribs.

Gronkowski was downgraded to “out” by the team and did not travel with the Super Bowl champions for Sunday night’s anticipated matchup with the New England Patriots.

Brady will be returning to New England tonight when the Tampa Bay Buccaneers take on the Patriots and his former coach Bill Belichick.

The defending Super Bowl champions will visit Gillette Stadium tonight and for the Brady’s first time in his historic career, the star QB will be on opposing sidelines.
Also, Brady is gunning for the all time NFL passing record without Gronk, who has received plenty of balls from the GOAT.
Gronkowski won’t be able to make the trip, however, reportedly because of fractured ribs from last week’s game against the Rams. Live coverage of the Buccaneers in new England begins at 7pm Eastern.
