Seven-time Super Bowl champion Tom Brady will begin his broadcast career as Fox’s lead analyst during Week 1 as the Cleveland Browns host the Dallas Cowboys on Sept. 8, the network announced Monday. Brady will broadcast the game alongside Fox’s lead play-by-play broadcaster Kevin Burkhardt.

Brady’s Fox regular-season debut likely would have featured curiosity seekers no matter when it aired but Fox and the NFL have set up his debut game to have massive viewership because it features the Cowboys in an exclusive national Sunday afternoon window on Week 1.

The NFL had given Fox and CBS Week 1 doubleheaders in recent years so this figures to help Fox out. Not only is the top NFL draw based on viewership and an emerging Browns team, but they also have the debut of the highest-paid NFL broadcaster in history.

Brady appeared at Fox’s media upfronts in New York City on Monday afternoon where Michael Strahan announced Brady’s broadcasting assignment alongside the future Hall of Fame quarterback in front of media buyers and Fox executives. Brady and Strahan closed out the upfront presentation alongside celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay.
