How prep for Pats changes

Bills head coach Chan Gailey shed some light on just how much changes with respect to game planning when you face a division opponent the second time around.

“You work on what they did in the first game that was effective,” said Gailey. “If it wasn’t effective they’re probably not going to repeat it. So you work on the things that were effective and you try to guesstimate and see what they’ve done in the previous four or five games and tie it into what you do and if you can guesstimate correctly you have a chance to adjust quicker or not make adjustments at all once you get to the first quarter, second quarter of the game.”

So while there is greater familiarity with a division opponent, it doesn’t keep a coaching staff from trying to hypothesize as to what else might be coming in the second meeting.
