The New York Jets’ defense has studied the film and know exactly what they need to do against Tom Brady.

Get pressure on the New England Patriots quarterback. Sack him. Force him into rushing throws.

Brady has gone down 16 times after being sacked just 15 times in 12 regular-season games last season.

The Patriots’ star has also been a bit banged up, sitting out two practices with a sore left shoulder before returning Thursday on a limited basis.

It certainly sounds simple enough. But Brady remains one of the most prolific quarterbacks in the NFL — despite those high sack numbers.

And for all the talk about sacks, the Jets don’t get them often. They have seven, which is the second-lowest total in the NFL.

Of the Jets’ sacks, not one has come from a defensive lineman. Linebacker David Bass has two, followed by fellow linebacker Demario Davis (1 1/2). Safety Jamal Adams, linebacker Darron Lee and cornerback Buster Skrine each have one, with linebacker Josh Martin adding a half-sack.
