In just a few days, two of the best quarterbacks in NFL history will step on the field against each other.

Tom Brady's Tampa Bay Buccaneers host Aaron Rodgers' Green Bay Packers in a matchup of NFC title contenders. Before the game kicks off, though, Brady had a few words about his competition.

Brady made it clear he admires Rodgers' ability on the football field.

“He’s an amazing player. Has been for a long time,” Brady said in his Thursday press conference. “I love watching him play and he’s from California, too, so I feel like we always have a little bit of a connection. He’s an older guy now. He’s been a great player in the same place for a long time, so there definitely are some challenges with that. But he’s navigated them pretty well."

“And he’s done a great job, leads the team, and they’ve won a lot of games since he’s been there," Brady added. "I knew Brett [Favre] pretty well — those two guys are two pretty great quarterbacks for a long period of time in one place.”

Tampa Bay enters the game as a slight favorite, but will be without a few top wide receiver options.
