The Buffalo Bills want to start the season on a positive note, and perhaps maintain it throughout he season; something they usually haven't been able to do.
It all starts in their week one matchup with AFC powerhouse New England Patriots, who, by many accounts are "vulnerable" and ripe for the picking.
"88 percent of New England's catches, 87 percent of its yards and 88 percent of its touchdowns are off the roster or hurt. Gone are Wes Welker, Brandon Lloyd and Danny Woodhead. Aaron Hernandez is awaiting a murder trial. Rob Gronkowski is recovering from another surgery," notes Tim Graham of the Buffalo News.
"Three of the quarterback's four best weapons are gone, if you throw Lloyd in there," an unnamed NFC Personnel executive told NFL Network's Albert Breer. "The run game is solid, but how much of that was because of how well they throw it? The defense is just OK. ...I think they're average, depending on when Gronk gets back. Teams are gonna be biting at the bit to play them early on."
