McClain: Patriots are a ‘finesse’ team
|09.26.11 at 6:12 pm ET|
‘(It’s a) huge game. One of the best teams in the league and they’ve been a premiere team in the league for a while,’ McClain said. ‘Just another way to measure where we are right now. Just go out and compete against these guys.’
Asked if the Patriots are different from the physical Jets (who the Raiders beat on Sunday), McClain agreed.
‘This is just a finesse team,’ said McClain, who is second on the Raiders with 23 tackles. ‘I mean, Tom Brady‘s a smart guy, has many weapons around him, with his receivers as well as his tight ends. His tight ends are playing great right now.’
