It will be a tough one to say the least to start the season. The Bills at home hosting division rival New England. And that means another visit from Tom Brady, who's only lost to the Bills twice. Both games were here in Buffalo, one was the opener in 2003.
The name of the game is pressure when it come to stopping the two-time MVP and not give him time in the pocket. The "D" will also have to stay on their toes. The Patriots will run a hurry up offense at times and then slow the pace at other times.
"The thing that they do, the way they vary their tempo," defensive tackle Kyle Williams said. "They will huddle up or hit a big play or catch you in a personnel that they like, and they'll go no huddle or hurry up tempo to keep you in it. So it's not a no huddle, up tempo all the time, it's when they think it's to their advantage to keep you in it is when they'll go up tempo."
"I look at the first five games of the season as a gut check, to see where we’re at, what we’re going to do and how we’re going to do this season," defensive tackle Marcell Dareus said. "Just go to chop at the wood and try to finish creating our identity as a team and as a unit, and just go play hard."
