ATLANTA (NEXSTAR) —
Tom Brady has not been sacked in the post-season. Nexstar Nation Big Game Bound Digital Reporter Ashley Bridges talked with NFL Hall of Famer Aeneas Williams about what that could mean for Sunday’s big game.
“I think that’s a key factor,” Williams replied. “His offensive line has done a phenomenal job. They’ve got take on Brady with a four man rush instead of a Blitz and the Rams are able to do that. To get him on the ground that’s key.:
Bridges pointed out that Brady has only been blitzed two percent of the time. Williams had a quick response.
“You don’t blitz him,” he said matter of factly. “I remember them asking him ‘why do you want to play until you’re 45,’ and I remember a great answer: ‘why would I quit when I know all the answers to the test?’ Any blitz you come up with he’s going to read it which then puts the opposing backs on one-on-one coverage.”
As far as his pick for Sunday goes, Williams says that’s easy: He played for the Rams.
