Tom Brady focuses on 'revenge' against Rams: I just want to do football

After defeating the Philadelphia Eagles in the Wild Card Round, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers want every detail before facing the Los Angeles Rams in the Divisional Round, especially legendary quarterback Tom Brady.

The seven-time Super Bowl champion prefers to put aside any distractions that could affect the Buccaneers' preparation and made that clear.

Yeah, we played them earlier in the year, but it's a very different team we had, and I think a little bit of a different team they had too

"I think for all of us it's repeating good processes is the important part. Getting to this time of year, you don't do much different. You just do more of what got you here. The things that work, we do more of. You try to eliminate all of the other distractions. I even told (Vice President of Communications) Nelson [Luis], 'I don't want to do anything extra this week. I just want to do football," Brady said.

"That's all I want to do to prepare and get ready. That's how we should all approach it. This isn't the time for the trips to the movie theaters. This is the time to lock in on football. All we have is three days left and we have to earn more.

"You just look at it like that [as far as] anything you can kind of put off until the end of the year. We just certainly hope the end of the year is not Sunday night. We have to go earn it. You've got to go win and move on," the quarterback added.

Brady hopes to learn from past loss to Rams

Brady has not forgotten the Buccaneers' loss to the Rams in Week 3 of the regular season, but says the reality for both teams is very different today, according to the quarterback who led Tampa Bay to a rematch with the New Orleans Saints last season.

After two losses in the regular season, Brady and the Buccaneers defeated the Saints in the playoffs last season, which could be repeated this time against Los Angeles.

"I think all of these games are little bit independent from one another. Yeah, we played them earlier in the year, but it's a very different team we had, and I think a little bit of a different team they had too, so they are each their own individual type of game.

"It's really about this game and what we learned from the last game. Any time you know your opponent I think that gives you a little bit of understanding of kind of what they do well, things you wish you would've done. But it's a very talented football team [and] one of the great teams in the NFL - really good offense, tremendous defense, really well-coached, great specialists. It's going to be a very, very difficult game for us," Brady said.

Brady's wink to the Patriots

In addition, the experienced quarterback gave a wink to the teams he has previously played for, which have allowed him to establish himself as one of the greatest players in the history of the NFL.

"I think it's just a credit to all the great teams I've been on. I've just been a part of so many great teams over a long period of time. I love that I've been able to do it for as long as I have. I love the game and I love being out there with my teammates," Brady said.

"We've just had a lot of success over a lot of years trying to do the right thing. What we've done here the last two seasons has been a lot of fun for me to learn and grow with these players and our organization. We've put ourselves in good position. Now we have to go take advantage of it," he added.
