This week, Miami’s defense probably won’t have that specific challenge, but they have to face perhaps the league’s best pocket passer, Tom Brady, the future Hall of Famer whose 8-1 TD-INT ratio is a league best.
Brady made his weekly appearance on WEEI’s Dennis and Callahan Show and said that he watched some of the Dolphins-Seahawks game on his Sunday off to begin to prepare for this Sunday’s game.
Because it’s a divisional matchup, there shouldn’t be too much of an acclimation process early on–these two teams know each other well.
“We know the players,” Brady said.” It’s a team that we’ve always had a tough time with down in Florida. They’re athletic. They can rush the quarterback. Cameron Wake’s one of the best players we play all season. Very good third-down defense, good secondary.
“It’s going to be a fun game. I’m ready to get back out there.”
The Dolphins last beat the Patriots at home in 2009.
