The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have another massive matchup on the horizon this week.

They're set to travel to San Francisco to take on the NFC West-leading 49ers as they look to stay in first in the NFC South. 

For quarterback Tom Brady, this is more than just a business trip. He's returning home to California where he was born to face a 49ers squad that was his childhood team.

"I'll always consider myself a California kid," Brady said. "I grew up loving Joe Montana and Steve Young and going to 49er games, that's when I fell in love with football. We had four tickets. My mom and dad would go, I would go, and then one of my sisters would go. It was a great time."

Even though the 49ers passed Brady six times, he'll still always have a love for that franchise.

He'll look to take them down on Sunday at 4:25 p.m. ET. It'll be televised by FOX.
