Patriots vs Broncos on Sunday for AFC title

Patriots vs Broncos on Sunday for AFC title

You were in full pads for practice yesterday. How much contact was there?
BB: Just like a regular kind of Wednesday or Thursday practice.

Q: Was it a good opportunity to work on the run game?
BB: Yeah, pads are always good for the run game, for all the line of scrimmage work, blitz pickup, short yardage, goal-line, tempo, pad level.

Q: Is there anything specifically about the Broncos running game that presented a problem for you last time?
BB: It was definitely a problem. We just didn’t play very well. Give up 179 yards, I mean, that’s not where we want to be.

Q: How much did the return of Sebastian Vollmer help the offensive line last week? Do you think you can duplicate that performance this week?
BB: I don’t know. We’re playing the game. [It’s] always good to have any player. It’s good to have every player back, any player back, so it’s good to have Sebastian back. It’s good to have any player back. I don’t know. We’ll prepare for it and see how it goes.

Q: Have you seen Denver’s running game improve as the season has gone on?
BB: Probably the best it was [was] against us, so we saw it.

Q: How was the team’s preparation this week?
BB: We’ll see.

Q: How has Keshawn Martin developed in the offense?
BB: Good. Good, again, Keshawn had a good, relatively good background with what we were doing. A lot of the terminology is similar to Houston and what [Texans head coach] Billy [O’Brien] did. But still, it’s different, and the timing is different. There are certainly a lot of differences, but he had a good start on that. He missed the couple weeks there around mid-season. But he’s done a good job for us returning the ball and offensively and has played multiple positions, so he’s been a solid addition for us. I’m glad we have him.

Q: Has he exceeded your expectations since you brought him in?
BB: We thought he would help us. That’s why we traded for him.
