Rex expecting a lot of Pats big back this week

Bills head coach Rex Ryan has seen enough of New England’s offensive game plans over the years that he has a pretty good idea which running back the Patriots will be deploying against his Bills defense this week.

Knowing that the Patriots frequently change who the feature back is in a given week, Ryan has little doubt who Buffalo’s run front will be dealing with Sunday.

“Yeah (LeGarrette) Blount,” said Ryan. “That’s who it’s going to be. That’s who it would’ve been Week 1. The other kid is who he is. Blount is their guy and I know him he’s a big, tough, stud running back. We throw in this other dude, hey guess what? He ain’t going to play. They’ll put him in on third down, but he’s not going to be out there. They’re going to put Blount back there.”

Blount has had good success against the Bills in the past. In his last two games against Buffalo he has 251 yards on 34 carries and a pair of touchdowns. His yards per carry average in those two games is 7.38.
