The Bills defensive game plan was to use their advantageous matchups up front and just rush their front four at Tom Brady on passing downs so they could drop seven into coverage. That was the plan through much of the first half, but Mario Williams, Kyle Williams, Marcell Dareus and Jerry Hughes could not get home, and it had nothing to do with their abilities as pass rushers.
Bills Bacarri Rambo, who saw it all unfold from his safety position said Patriots QB Tom Brady just gets the ball out too fast for any pass rush to matter.
“It wasn’t even the pass rush; it’s just, (Tom Brady) wasn’t holding on to the ball long enough to allow our pass rush to get there,” said Rambo. “We’ve got four guys that can get home each and every play if they want, and they’re going to, because that’s how those guys play up front. But, it wasn’t even on them by getting home, it’s Brady just knew where the ball was going as soon as he got the ball, one, two, the ball was gone. So, it had nothing to do with the pass rush.”
