All the talk pregame was about Rex Ryan's Buffalo Bills defense trying to find a way to stop Tom Brady and the undefeated New England Patriots. By the end of the game, it was the current AFC East leaders who came out on top, winning 20-13.
While Ryan did his best throughout the game to send different blitz packages on different defensive fronts to try and confuse the four-time Super Bowl champion quarterback, the game will be remembered for an audible which Brady called to one of those defensive fronts early in the game.
During the early parts of the first quarter, the two-time NFL MVP made the audible at the line of scrimmage of 'Rex Ryan, Rex Ryan' which got a few laughs from many people watching the game because of the history between the two men.

Moments later, Brady was being chased down by Bills safety Corey Graham, but the quarterback managed to get the ball away for a completion before he was tackled to the ground.
Maybe it was a form of mind games to try and confuse Ryan and the Bills. Brady brushed that speculation off after the game, saying it was just another audible in their offense. However, Ryan said he never heard the Patriots quarterback say the audible, according to Conor Orr of Around The NFL.
He said: "He was calling my name? He likes me, I know that."
Thanks to their win against the Bills and if results go their way this week, the Patriots could win the AFC East for the seventh consecutive year. In the meantime, it's nice to see everyone is getting along.
