Mario Williams recorded his first sack and a half as a Buffalo Bill in Sunday’s victory over the Cleveland Browns.
The $96 million free agent acquisition told “NFL AM” Wednesday morning he and his front-line mates will need to put similar pressure on New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady in this week’s matchup.
“The biggest thing is be relentless and get him off his spot, if he’s back there relaxed and cool, calm and collected it’s going to be a long day,” Williams said. “As a front we know that we have to get after him and make him move and let him know that he is not going to be comfortable.”
Brady has been sacked six times the past two weeks, both losses. Williams said the key to disrupting the Patriots offense is making the two-time Super Bowl MVP move his feet.
“We have to be relentless, you have to run through people, whoever is in front of you you have to put them on his lap,” said the defensive end. “Make a move and get him off his rhythm, get him off his timing, because obviously when you got quarterbacks that are like that everything is about timing and he doesn’t want to move he wants to be in a position so he can deliver the throw on time. Get to him fast so he can’t sit there and go through his reads and be on time.”
