Tom Brady and Aaron Donald have faced each other five times, with three of those encounters occurring in the last two seasons. Brady is 151 of 238 for 1,508 yards with five touchdowns and four interceptions in games against Donald’s Rams, with Donald having 12 tackles, two sacks and six quarterback hits.

The Rams have won the last three matches against Brady after Brady’s Patriots beat them 26-10 in 2016 and 13-3 in Super Bowl LIII.

The rest of the NFL outside of Tampa was ecstatic when Brady announced his retirement, only to see he didn’t retire after 40 days. The rest of the NFL outside of Los Angeles was ecstatic when Donald said he was considering retiring, only to see him sign a three-year, $95 million extension.

They meet again on November 6th in Los Angeles.

“I see Aaron Donald working out on my Instagram, I’m like, ‘Damn, maybe I should have retired,'” Brady said during an appearance on The Dan Patrick Show. “He’s a beast.”

Donald has returned to chase back-to-back Super Bowls. (Brady’s Patriots are the latest team to repeat after winning Super Bowl XXXVIII in 2003 and Super Bowl XXXIX in 2004.) Brady has returned to chase his ninth Super Bowl. Their teams are the favorites to win the NFC.
