thats how the steelers and giants both beat NE this season. Pitt showed that if u press their passing targets and disrupt the timing and reroute them, Brady starts to make bad decisions and throws into tight coverage.
thats how our defense will dominate their offense imo. it gives our DL more time to get after tom tom, while also setting the tone of being the more physical team.
i expect we will see a lot of press man to man, of course with some zone too. but expect a big majority of the game to see us jamming their wr's and te's off the line of scrimmage, to see a lot of NE's underneath routes to be rerouted, and a lot of sacks.
the offense of ny will be able to score points on NE, this I have no doubt. and i believe eli is going to have one of the best performances of his career. but that should be our base defensive philosophy.
