Bears' Fields and Tom Brady will set new record in Week 7 originally appeared on NBC Sports Chicago

History will be made Sunday at Raymond James Stadium when the Chicago Bears take on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

At 22-years-old, rookie quarterback Justin Fields will match up against 44-year-old quarterback Tom Brady, setting a new NFL record for the largest age gap between starting quarterbacks.

Brady continues to break records even though this time it's because of old age instead of passing a ball.

Born in March 1999, Fields was only one-years-old when Brady was drafted by the New England Patriots in the sixth round of the 2000 NFL Draft.

Prior to the Justin Fields era, the Bears beat the Buccaneers 20-19 in the 2020 season. Brady — who is known for his fourth quarter comebacks — made a gaffe late in the game with 33 seconds remaining. The Bucs had the ball on a fourth-and-6 and Brady threw an incomplete pass to Cameron Brate thinking the Bucs were on third down. It was an error that secured a victory for the Bears.
