Ahead of facing the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Joe Burrow is resisting comparisons to Tom Brady.

"I don't really pay attention to it," the Cincinnati Bengals said. "He's Tom, and I'm Joe."

The two players will be facing each other for the first time at Raymond James Stadium.

While Burrow might resist the comparison, the 26-year-old Burrow had plenty of admiration for Brady.

"He gets the ball out really fast," Burrow said. "He understands what he's looking at. I think he epitomizes toughness at the quarterback position. And he's a great leader. I mean, he's the greatest of all time for a reason. He's the total package."
