Bruschi's Breakdown on Pats-Giants

November, 4, 2011
Every week leading up to the Patriots' game, Tedy Bruschi and Mike Reiss analyze the matchup in "Bruschi's Breakdown." This week's piece has been posted, and Bruschi sees a tough matchup for his former team.

Bruschi has been impressed with Giants quarterback Eli Manning.

"He's had a great year. He's playing phenomenal football," he says. "He's making good decisions with the football. He's not turning it over and that has been a problem for him in the past. He's playing at a high level coming into this game, and that's bad news for the Patriots, who are struggling to find some answers on defense. If I'm Eli Manning, I am licking my chops after seeing the Steelers' film in Sunday's 25-17 win over the Patriots. There are a lot of holes in that defense, and he has a lot of weapons."

Bruschi also details how the Giants generate pressure.

"Overall, this is basically what it comes down to: 'Here come the rushers.' They're going to come after Tom Brady, and they have the players to do it."
