He will face a stiff test this Sunday when he and his team will host Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Or is it the other way around?
Brady half-jokingly asked Bosa on social media to go easy on him.

Bosa’s Twitter handle is @nbsmallerbear, but he has been a full-blown grizzly on the attack for San Francisco.
Brady Will Have To Be His Best Against The Best
The 49ers, who are 8-4 and in first place in the NFC West, have the NFL’s best defense and rank at the top in multiple key defensive categories.

Many feel they can still make a run at the Super Bowl even with starting quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo out due to a foot injury because of their defensive excellence.
Brady has faced and overcome great defensive units before, but it won’t be as easy to do so at age 45.
So often this season, he has looked like a mere mortal, and across the board, some of his numbers are down to the lowest levels seen in years.
However, on Monday Night Football versus the New Orleans Saints, he looked like his vintage self by leading the Bucs to a last-second win despite trailing by 13 in the fourth quarter.
Brady grew up in the Bay Area and was a huge 49ers fan growing up, and he will have to hold up well against his boyhood team to get his current squad over .500.
