Woodyard's World: Week 12

Posted Nov 22, 2013

Linebacker Wesley Woodyard blogs about the team's upcoming trip to New England.

Editor's note: Linebacker Wesley Woodyard, who was voted as a team captain for the fifth-consecutive season this year, will contribute blog entries thoughout the 2013 season. See below for his latest entry on the team's upcoming trip to New England.

We’re back on the road this week with a trip to New England for another primetime game.

That’s what we live for – the big time games. It’s amazing how many primetime games you get in one year. We’re lucky to get a lot primetime games. We’re excited to be on that stage.

New England has one of the better stadiums as far as fan participation and the crowd is always into the game. That’s one of the key reasons why they are able to win at home.

It’s really important that we don’t set ourselves up for failure. We have to welcome all of these challenges – the next two games on the road and this is a huge challenge, playoff-caliber team, championship team. We have to make sure we go out there and handle our business.

Tom Brady is very well-prepared. He’s not a guy that just relies on his arm. You can tell that he knows exactly what other teams are doing and what they’re trying to off to get him off his game. He’s a very well prepared quarterback and that’s why he’s at the top of the league.

Going up against Peyton, it’s obviously a different offense but the same mentality as far as they can hurry up at any moment. You have to be ready for what’s coming, you have to already be thinking about what plays are going to be coming and what plays you have to run as a defense. Its good practice for us because, our offense is helping us out every week with that.
