Tom Brady is not worried by the prospect of Andrew Luck in the build up to the playoff clash between the New England Patriots and the Indianapolis Colts, according to U.S sources.
The Patriots quarterback has been talking about his opposite number's win over the Kansas City Chiefs, appearing on one of Boston’s biggest talk radio shows.
He said: "Truthfully, I'm not worried about the opposing quarterback.
"I'm thinking about the defence and what I need to do to play against them.''
The Colts managed to pull off a miraculous come back and pip the Chiefs to the next round of the playoffs.
Colts quarterback Luck got a touch of good fortune to score, when the ball dropped to his feet early in the 4th quarter to put the Colts in touching distance of the dramatic finish.
Brady insisted despite Luck's season he’s more worried about Robert Mathis who leads the league with 19.5 sacks and has always been at his best in the Patriots' previous meetings.
"It all starts with Robert Mathis and being the defensive player of the year, basically, 19.5 sacks, he kind of wreaks a lot of havoc."
The Colts have always been rivals of the Patriots and the animosity has been offered little reason to decrease.
Brady has been the stand out player in an up and down season for the Patriots and is on the hunt for his fourth Super Bowl ring, with a good run through the playoffs.
The Patriots face the Colts Sunday at 1:15 for a spot in the Playoff semi-finals, where they will face either San Diego or the Denver Broncos.
