Tom Brady, Bucs aim to continue road success in one of NFL's 'coolest stadiums' originally appeared on NBC Sports Boston
Tom Brady and the Buccaneers have been road warriors for much of the season with eight wins in 10 games (including the NFL playoffs) away from Tampa Bay, and they'll need one more victory to return home for a Super Bowl LV matchup in Raymond James Stadium.
The Bucs will travel to Green Bay later this week to face the No. 1 seed Packers in Sunday afternoon's NFC Championship Game at historic Lambeau Field.
Brady has plenty of experience going on the road with a Super Bowl berth at stake. Six of his previous 14 championship game appearances -- all with the New England Patriots -- came on the road, and he's won three of them. The latest was an overtime victory against the Kansas City Chiefs en route to the Patriots' triumph in Super Bowl LIII.
The 43-year-old quarterback was asked Wednesday about his team's success on the road this season.
"We've been pretty good on the road all year, outside of the first game and then the Chicago game. For one reason or another we've just done a good job," Brady said in a Zoom call with reporters. "Some years it's been like that -- I've been a part of teams where it wasn't quite like that.
"Let's keep that streak going, that would be pretty sweet. Let's get another one. We're going to be challenged to get it because we're going up against a great football team. Playing on the road is about good execution and communication, all the fundamentals like blocking, tackling, throwing and all those things.
"It's a great environment. This is one of the coolest stadiums in the league to play in. I know they're excited, we're excited. It'll make for a great football game."
Beating the Packers definitely will be a huge challenge for the Bucs. Green Bay is 8-1 at home this season and scoring 31.5 points per game in those matchups. Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers is the likely NFL MVP winner and played great in his team's NFC Divisional Round win over the Los Angeles Rams.
A win for Brady would send him to his 10th Super Bowl, and given his remarkable playoff career, it would be hard to bet against him and the Buccaneers on Sunday.
