Tom Brady previewed Patriots-Jaguars on his weekly interview on sports radio WEEI: "It's been a busy couple days. We practiced against them in training camp and we haven't seen much of them all year. Yesterday was a ton of film. It was good because it really kind of gets you focused on where you need to be. This is the biggest challenge we've faced all year. We've had a good offense. They've had the best defense. And that's always a challenge when you go up against those guys. When you watch them play over the course of the season, you can see why. There is not a lot of time for the quarterback to throw, and I think the whole secondary knows it. The linebackers know it. And they're aggressive. They take chances. They get a lot of turnovers. They have a really good scheme, and the quarterback is just under pressure all day."
