(WVUE) -

For the third time in their NFL careers, Drew Brees and Tom Brady will meet on the field when the Saints host the Patriots Sunday. 

In 2013, the Patriots won a close contest 30-27 at New England. In 2009, the Black and Gold blew out the Pats, 38-17, on their way to a Super Bowl title.

Both Brees (38 years old) and Brady (40 years old) have spoken openly about playing into their mid-40's. So this might not be the final time they face-off on the football field.

"Well it doesn't seem like he's stopping anytime soon. I don't know if there's a guy who's more diligent and disciplined in regards to his recovery and preparation. One of the greatest of all time, if not the greatest. Certainly the championships will tell you the greatest. Got a ton respect for him, since playing him in college. I have a lot of respect and admiration for him," said Drew Brees.

The feelings Tom Brady has for Brees are mutual.

"Obviously, it’s pretty unique for both of us. I’ve been very blessed over the course of my career and to still be with the same team in my 18th year has just been a great blessing for me," said Tom Brady. "I have so much respect for Drew and what he’s accomplished. Playing against him for a long time, I know the challenges a Drew Brees-led team presents. We’ve got our work cut out for us. It’s going to be a tough game and a tough environment. Hopefully we do a better job than the last time we were down there."
