OK... You know it is a 50/50 shot so you aren't really making a bold statement.

We already know this.

I'm more concerned with the Ravens in week 4. It'll be hard staying undefeated against the Super Bowl Champions although the game is at The Ralph…

It all comes down to preseason.

Wow. What a gutsy and ballsy call. I give you credit. I couldn't take such a big risk.

Sweet I was hoping this would be the case.  

They'll certainly be making some key assumptions on what film to watch.

If it is already decided, then someone should tell NE to cancel their travel plans so Marcia doesn't have to suffer through another night in a ****ty Buffalo hotel.

Yeah the fact that the Bills are 2-18 the last decade means its a 50/50 shot. (and 1 of those wins was a decade ago)

I concur with the OP. I think the game is in the bag. Brady will be slow to process seeing our players lined up in various spots while sending pressure from different angles. Offensively, as much as I can see our guys turning the ball over, I can also see some serious luck plays down the field given the teams athleticism at the skill positions. Summer time optimism shines bright. Go Bills!

I will say that the Bills should have a decent chance.  Brady might be without his top 5 targets from last year and there will be very little film on hopefully a new aggressive D.  That said, NE will only beat us 45-3. :nana:

In all seriousness, I actually think we can and will beat NE week 1.  We have a few advantages afforded to us that will lend to that possibility.

1.  Completely new offensive and defensive schemes.  They will have film on the Jets D to really try and find some insight on the Bills new look D, but we have a completely different cast of players, so it will be hard from them to truly prepare for it.  Add into that that Pettine has been scheming against the Pats for a while now and knows that team while the Pats will not have much to look at to try and figure out what our offense is going to do.  

2.  New players on offense who are explosive, and lots of them.  With all the speed and potential on this offense, we should be able to throw a lot of different looks at them and keep them guessing.  Their D isnt exceptionally fast, so we should be able to break some big plays.

3.  Aggressive defense = slowing pats down.  Pettine is going to bring the pressure that much we know.  How successful it will be is yet to be seen, but we do know we will bring it.  

4.  Questionable weapons on offense in NE.  Will Gronk be healthy enough to play, will Amendola and/or Aaron Hernandez survive preseason without injury, how will Brady respond with no Welker safety blanket, etc etc.  If all his weapons are healthy, then its still a formidable group in which Brady can do damage with, but this is the most injury riddled collection of weapons I have ever seen, so thats a big if.  Plus Amendola is new, so how long til they can build chemistry and timing.

5.  Unknown Coaching.  BB is who he is and a brilliant coach.  However, they don't really know enough on Marrone to really plan for what he wants to do, and that unknown will help us against such a smart and great scheming coach like BB.

So in conclusion, I think the first game against the Pats will be the best chance to beat them (assuming the last game of the year still matters for both teams) because we will be relatively unknown and hard to plan against and Brady and the Pats will be adjusting to their own new changes.

Nice, that means we can get at least 30 seconds on NFL Network!

Though it will probably be on how the Pats let us beat them...

the Ravens don't worry me actually. Something tells me without Ray Lewis, Ed Reed, Kruger, and more, they will be primed for a slump this year. I'm betting they don't make the playoffs. Bengals will knock them off their pedestal this year becoming the AFCN champ.

My opinion of course.

We don't even know who our QB is and it is game #1 for a new coaching staff.  I would assume we are 10-12 point dogs even at home

Well, it's narrowed down to 2 choices.
