New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady is easily the best player at his position in the AFC East, and he has had a virtual who’s who of targets including Wes Welker, Randy Moss and Rob Gronkowski in past seasons. In the last four seasons, he’s thrown for no less than 3,900 yards and 28 touchdown passes which is nothing short of amazing.
Despite having seemingly unlimited weapons over the years, what makes Brady so deadly is that he has been known to turn no-name receivers into household names or make an aging vet seemingly feel young and spry again.
The way the Buffalo Bills will have to beat him on Sunday is consistently pressure by hitting him all game long and destabilize his pocket, making him move around a great deal more, which will cause his accuracy to drop. When the Bills beat them two seasons ago, they took advantage of the fact that Brady didn’t have a solid rapport with every single receiver, most notably Chad Johnson.
Once the turnovers started to pile up for Brady, he got more and more frazzled.
The Bills have the personnel to do this, including linebackers Jerry Hughes, Kiko Alonso and Manny Lawson. It should be an interesting game on Sunday and if the Bills can stop Brady first and foremost, they will win the game easily as all things New England go through no. 12.
