The former New England Patriots and Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback will be in the anchor seat for the Sept. 8 Week 1 game between the Dallas Cowboys and Cleveland Browns, Fox Sports announced.

He will be joined in the booth by Kevin Burkhardt.

The matchup will be America’s Game of the Week starting at 4:25 p.m. ET and will be shown on Fox and the Fox Sports app.

The Athletic reported that the Cowboys are the league’s top team based on viewership while the Browns are being called an “emerging team.”

Brady was recently joined on stage by “Fox NFL Sunday” pregame analyst and former New York Giants defensive end Michael Strahan during the network’s upfront presentation in New York City, NBC News reported.

Brady retired from the NFL with seven Super Bowl championships — six with New England and one with Tampa Bay.

He was drafted in 2000 as the 199th pick in Round 6 from Michigan. He played 20 seasons with the Patriots before going to the Buccaneers, where he played three more seasons, according to ESPN.
