Simms on D&C: Edelman will deliver

CBS Sports NFL analyst Phil Simms was a guest of the Dennis & Callahan show Wednesday morning to preview Sunday's Patriots-Ravens first-round playoff matchup. Simms will be in the broadcast booth when the teams meet at Gillette Stadium.


Simms said he's been impressed with Julian Edelman's ability to fill in for Wes Welker, and the former Giants quarterback expects to see Edelman come through Sunday. "The Patriots can't re-invent themselves here in one week because they've got the same offense, so a lot of that focus is going to have to go to Edelman still, because that's the way it's designed, a lot of pass plays," Simms said.

"You can't help but have more confidence in your ability to beat this Patriots team."


Billick said the Ravens, New England's first-round opponent, are "an extremely dangerous team with their balance," but there are weaknesses. "Keep in mind now that the Baltimore defense has some issues as well," Billick said, specifically noting the loss of defensive back Ladarius Webb (torn ACL). "They have a difficult time putting pressure on the quarterback...
