With the Patriots hosting the Eagles Thursday night in a Super Bowl LII rematch, one of the bigger questions is how much will Tom Brady play?

Perhaps, a good amount.

According to ESPN's Mike Reiss, Brady is expected to play in the game and it wouldn't be a surprise to see him play deep into the first half.

It is worth pointing out if he does in fact play, it will be his first preseason home game since Aug. 13, 2015  and just his third preseason game played at Gillette Stadium since start of 2014.

Thursday will be a good opportunity to see where Brady is with his new receivers, since they have had limited time together.
