The New England Patriots offense has looked extremely strong in the postseason thus far. 

In victories over the Los Angeles Chargers and Kansas City Chiefs, Tom Brady and the Patriots offense scored a total of 78 points, with Brady throwing for 340+ yards in each contest.

One reason for the 41-year-old's tremendous success has been the play of the offensive line. New England's line has managed to keep Brady almost untouched, with Los Angeles and Kansas City combining for zero sacks and only three quarterback hits in two games.

Former Super Bowl Champion head coach Bill Billick joined Mike's On Tuesday to discuss Sunday's matchup, and why the Rams might have more success getting to Brady than the Chiefs or Chargers.

"If anyone can do it, it's Aaron Donald and obviously Ndamukong Suh..." Billick told Mike Francesa Tuesday. "With Brady, not that Brady can't be good outside the pocket, but you know he's going to beat you inside the pocket. So you've got to get that rush. And certainly with Suh and Donald, they're capable of doing that... 

"That offensive line, they're just so smart. They know where their help comes from. They know where the double needs to go... But if anybody could challenge it, I think it's this inside pressure of the Rams."

The Rams were able to defeat the New Orleans Saints in the NFC Championship despite a rough outing from star running back Todd Gurley.

Gurley averaged almost 5.0 yards per carry during the season, running for 1,251 yards and a whopping 17 touchdowns. However against the Saints, the 24-year-old managed to gain only 10 yards on four carries with a touchdown.

If the Rams are going to take down the Patriots Sunday, Billick knows they will need a good game from their most talented offensive weapon.

"If the Rams win, my guess is that Todd Gurley could very well be the MVP," the former Ravens coach said. "If they win. Because that means they ran the ball well. Plus him out of the backfield... he hasn't shown much out of the backfield in the postseason. He caught 59-60 passes during the regular season.

"If they win, I think Todd Gurley may very well have had a big game."
