FOXBORO, Mass. — The beginning of the Patriots’ schedule couldn’t have stacked up better.
While Rob Gronkowski continues to recover from back surgery, New England will face off against the Bills, Jets and Buccaneers. To add to the ease, undrafted rookie Jeff Tuel is expected to start for Buffalo. Tuel shared the starting duties in 2012 with Connor Halliday for the 3-9 Washington State Cougars.
The Bills do have some quality players on their roster, but their strengths will be matching up with the Patriots’ strengths. New England’s rush defense should be able to handle C.J. Spiller and the offensive line should be able to control Mario Williams and Marcell Dareus.

When was the last time you thought about Mario Williams?
Since Footgate ended in late July, he's kind of been an afterthought for most Bills fans. This is the first 100-million dollar player in Buffalo sports history, the guy who swept across Buffalo in March of 2012 like he was the president riding in on a motorcade, putting the restaurant Tempo on the map.
