But, the asterisk in the above title and the phrase "start against each other" in the tweet mean that Brady and Rodgers have technically played each other once before.
In 2006 Brady and the Patriots blew out a Brett Favre Packers team 35-0 at Lambeau Field. However, Favre left the game with an elbow injury late in the first half. Rodgers entered and went 4-for-12 for 32 yards in just his fifth-ever NFL appearance.
