"I don't know which Patriots team will show up," Bruschi writes on ESPNBoston.com. He later continues, "The Bills have been preparing for this very game for the last two years. They drafted Marcell Dareus to be their Vince Wilfork. They backed up the Brinks truck for Mario Williams for this game. To get after Tom Brady. Then they signed Mark Anderson to do the same thing.
"Based on what I've seen from the Patriots the past two weeks, they have a long way to go," Bruschi concludes. "Going into Orchard Park to play a solid Bills team might be too much for them."
