As much as Tom Brady has some measure of unknowns in terms of how his rookie receivers will perform in their first NFL regular season games on Sunday in Buffalo, he also has some unknowns concerning how the Bills personnel will be utilized in Mike Pettine’s defensive scheme.
“You play a team like Buffalo with the new coordinator and you’re really not sure what they’re going to do,” said Brady. “In a way, you have to prepare for everything, and a lot of the focus from the last four days has been just that, trying to really put together a game plan, go out, and we’ve had three good days of practice and now we’ve got to follow it up with two more.
“It’s a very good defense. It’s a challenging scheme because they use their players very well. I think they have very multi-dimensional-type players. Similar to what we do on offense: we use everybody, they use everybody. Everybody has a role in their defense. Whatever they feel like is working, they stick with.
“But from game to game it’s always been different, so we’ve got a lot of information on the team based on what they’ve done in the past, so you really aren’t quite sure what they’re going to do. You can just kind of prepare for what you think they’re going to do, certainly what their strengths have been, and try to go from there.”
