New England Patriots (0-0) at Buffalo Bills (0-0)
A few weeks ago, this line was at -7.5 in favor of New England. However, EJ Manuel got hurt and the line shot up as it looked like undrafted free agent backup Jeff Tuel (originally the 3rd stringer before Kevin Kolb’s season ending injury) would become the first undrafted free agent to start week 1 since 1967. That put the line into double digits. Manuel is going to play in this one, but the line is still in double figures as there are questions about how well the mobile Manuel can play after minor knee surgery, as well as injuries to shutdown cornerback Stephon Gilmore to elite safety Jairus Byrd that have sunk the Bills’ secondary from passable to laughable.

E.J. Manuel had an efficient game against the Patriots.
The New England Patriots delivered a crushing last second loss to the Buffalo Bills at Ralph Wilson Stadium to the tune of 23-21.

The Patriots game yesterday against the Buffalo Bills was uncomfortably close for some fans, especially with the Bills taking the lead entering the fourth quarter.

Is the offensive display put on by Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos an indication that teams will be passing and running up and down the field at will in 2013? Of course not as one game is no trend. However, teams like the Patriots and Bills must be able to match-up with Denver’s arsenal so each team must answer lingering questions about their...
EJ Manuel was impressive on Sunday afternoon in his NFL debut against the Patriots. Unfortunately, the Patriots’ defense was just a little better than the rookie signal caller.
Manuel wasn’t helped out much by his rookie head coach, either. Apparently clock management wasn’t taught at Syracuse while Doug Marrone was on the payroll. The Patriots’ 37:43-22:17 victory in time...
Last week, I told a friend that I wasn’t expecting a Bills win in the opener against the Patriots. I just had two wishes for the game: I wanted to keep it close, and I wanted to see some positives from our rookie quarterback and our new-look defense.
Well, EJ Manuel showed incredible signs of promise and our defense gave (for the most part) a fantastic performance against the...
