Tom Brady missed the Patriots' opener last season, remember?

He'll be back out there tonight as the Patriots raise Super Bowl championship banner No. 5 at Gillette Stadium before the pursuit of title No. 6 begins against the Kansas City Chiefs at 8:30.

Brady posted a hype video on Instagram earlier Thursday that includes dramatic Super Bowl 51 footage, a lion and quotes British philosopher and writer Alan Watts: "When you speak, it's silent. When you are silent, it speaks."

You ready, Patriots fans?
