Tom Brady is going to pose the toughest challenge the Falcons have faced yet in their journey. The good news is that they have gotten plenty of practice with Super Bowl winners in the playoffs thus far. The way they took the fight to Russell Wilson and Aaron Rodgers will give them plenty of confidence going into their battle against Brady.
However, facing Brady is not the same as facing any other quarterback. Despite how great Rodgers is and how elusive Wilson is when he gets the football in his hands, taking on the four-time Super Bowl winner is a beast in itself.
He has faced every type of situation in his career and there’s nothing that’s going to surprise him. That means the Falcons can’t just hope they can pull some brand new strategy that no one has ever thought of before against Brady.
They are going to have to stick to their game plan and do things on all sides of the ball to help themselves against one of the greatest ever. It’s not just the defense that has to step up. Offense and special teams can help their defensive unit out too. Here are three things the Falcons must do to slow down Tom Brady.
