Week 4's Sunday Night Football clash between the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and New England Patriots is one of the most-anticipated games of the season.

Here's three of the best prop bets for this SNF showdown in Foxborough, courtesy of FanDuel Sportsbook.

Buccaneers vs Patriots SNF Prop Bets Tonight

1. Tom Brady - Rushing Yards: Over 0.5 (+120)

Tom Brady earned renown as the QB sneak GOAT during his years in New England. He racked up 606 attempts and 1,037 yards as a Pat -- good for 1.7 yards per attempt -- along with 22 touchdowns. He's kept that reputation up this season, recording 20 yards and a TD on just 4 attempts. The Patriots' run defense is nothing to be feared, as they're giving up the 10th-most rushing yards per game (122.7). It's clear Brady isn't afraid to run even at age 44. It's also clear Brady will want to send his former team a message in his return. There'd be no better way to do that by taking a goal-line sneak for a score. The plus-money on Brady getting just 1 yard is extremely attractive.

2. Jakobi Meyers - Total Receptions: Over 5.5 (-130)

Jakobi Meyers has established himself as Mac Jones' clear No. 1 option. The third-year pro leads the team with 29 receptions, outpacing the next-closest player in Nelson Agholor (18) by a wide margin. Meyers has converted those looks into a team-high 19 receptions, including games with 9 and 6 catches already this season. Now Meyers gets to pick apart a Tampa Bay defense that has given up the most passing yards per game (338.3). The Bucs are also down several key players in the secondary and working in Richard Sherman in his first game with the team. That's bad news for a secondary that's already struggling, and great news for the Pats' top receiver.

3. Mac Jones - Passing Yards: Over 254.5 (-114)

Mac Jones is in a similar position for a good day in the boxscore. He's hit this over in two of three games to begin the year, both of which were against respected secondaries in the New Orleans Saints and Miami Dolphins. Jones' 270 passing yards against New Orleans also came on a whopping 51 passing attempts, thanks to the Pats trailing all afternoon. New England is projected to find itself in a similar position with the Bucs as 7-point favorites. Brady and that high-powered offense could get out to a big lead early, forcing Jones and his team into obvious passing situations to close the gap. The rookie should have no problems soaring past the over given how likely he is to air it out on Sunday night.
