Guess who’s back? Back again. Tom Brady’s back. Tell a friend. The New England Patriots quarterback has served his ‘Deflate Gate’ suspension and he’ll make his return during Week 5 of the NFL! There’s plenty more games on tap so click to find out.
Much like how Slim Shady (aka Eminem, 43) rapped in “Without Me,” Tom Brady, 39, must have felt the NFL season “feels so empty without me.” The New England Patriots quarterback is certainly as controversial as Slim, having sat out the first four weeks for his role in the “Deflate Gate” scandal that rocked the NFL.
Now that he’s done serving his suspension, Tom will suit up for the first time for the 2016 NFL Season. After getting smacked around the Buffalo Bills, 16-0, on Oct. 3, it’s time for Tom to take over and take on the Cleveland Browns on Oct. 09.
The week officially kicks off with two NFC West teams trying to recover from an embarrassing start. Colin Kaepernick, 28, gained so much attention for protesting the national anthem, but failed to translate into wins for the San Francisco 49ers. The Niners are 1-3, just like the Arizona Cardinals. These two struggling teams will clash in Thursday Night Football, hoping a win will somehow resurrect their respective seasons.
The undefeated Denver Broncos will look to go 5-0 when they host the Atlanta Falcons. The Philadelphia Eagles will also try to stay unbeaten when they fly to Motown to take on the Detroit Lions. The week is pretty jam-packed so check out what’s going down:

Fans better also see if Josh Norman, 28, gets penalized for pulling out his “bow and arrow” during Washington’s game with the Ravens. Hopefully no one brings such a weapon to the Bills, as Buffalo picked a fight with the Pats before their game even started! Though, with Brady back, the Patriots have reclaimed some of their swag and are ready to take on anyone blocking their path to Super Bowl 51.
