“I knew he wasn’t going to run by me, so I was trying to bait him,” Bouye said. “Tom (Brady) will know if I am doing that. I just have to play tighter coverage (if he’s on Gronk).”
“Absolutely,” Brady said when asked if he would have to be at the top of his game to beat the Jaguars. “It’s the best team we’ve faced all year. They’re here for a reason. They’re a top-ranked defense in the league and have great players at all levels. They’re really well-coached and score a lot of points, so we’re going to have to play really well.”
“Hope they do not throw him the football,” Jaguars coach Doug Marrone joked this week. “Hope he drops it. There is no secret formula. I’d like to watch a game where someone has been able to do it. He’s going to make his plays, and you hope those plays don’t end up killing you.”

“We’re going to continue to get ready for Jacksonville all the way through,” coach Bill Belichick said, if Brady misses any of Sunday’s game before declining to offer any specifics on Brady’s status.
