Tom Brady took a break to ‘cheer on’ his son Jack at a football game in New York

Although the NFL season is now underway, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady took the time to watch over her son, John “Jack” Edwardin a football game this week.

A source tells PEOPLE that Brady, 45, traveled to New York and ‘cheered for Jack’ as the 15-year-old’s team won on Monday afternoon.

“He and a friend were left alone,” the source said. “His other kids weren’t with him this time. He looked like he was smiling and shouting to cheer Jack on.”

The day before, Brady and the Buccaneers beat the Saints 20-10 in New Orleans, but not before a fight between both teams during the fourth quarter resulted in at least one suspension. Brady was not involved in the fight but showed frustration in the first quarter when he threw and broke a tablet on the sidelines.

Tampa Bay is now 2-0 to start the year, which is Brady’s 23rd career season.

Sources have told PEOPLE that Brady’s decision not to retire has caused tension with Bündchen, 42, who wanted him to remain retired when he made the decision in January, to no longer take his retirement two months later.

“There’s a lot of tension. She was so happy when he announced his retirementand she wasn’t thrilled at all when he I came back to this“, said a source, adding that Brady “knows this is his last season” in the league “if he wants to stay married”.

Another source said Brady makes sure to find time for his family. “No other husband is entitled to six months leave a year to devote himself entirely to his family,” they explained. “And during the season, yes, he travels for games and trains, but he’s also with his family a lot.”
