Get something more than a 2 and a half minute drive and put some touchdowns on the board and you limit what Brady can do. Keep him off the field and keep the ball out of his hands and you can keep them from scoring. They forced 4 3 and outs and 5 punts overall, but our offense can't capitalize. Our QB can't make plays with his feet and will throw the ball away on 3rd down instead of trying to make a play down the field. The only time we do throw it deep is on 3rd or 4th and 1 or 2.
It is the defenses responsibility to stop the other team from scoring. You aren't going to shut Tom Brady out, but you should be able to expect some help from your offense.
you're not going to win if you have to score more than forty something against a playoff patriots either.
