    Pats 30 Bills 13

    Score kept down by Pats getting conservative to protect big lead.

    Brady 21-31-275

    Dillon 28-113
    Maroney 16-75 (including 1 20+run)

    No WR will stand out, Brady will spread the ball, and find Watson a lot as well.

    Defense: 4 sacks, 2 turnovers. Run D will be good, however, #s will be inflated by Losman scrambling when under pressure. Bills RBs will be under 80 yards, but total run O probably over 100 due to scrambling yards.

    I think we coast, so its hard to predict these stats, because by 7:00 of the 3rd quarter we may just stop throwing.

    Count on at least 20 first half points, then we just play out the W.

    One thing to watch for by the way: TEAM SPEED. I expect, especially on offense, we will see more ball carriers breaking into open field and getting long runs/run after catch.
    I think that team speed may be the best we have ever had (and Maroney is a huge part of this), especially on O. Look for more big plays this season than ever before.

    I don't even see the Bills racking up 13.

    I wouldn't be suprised at all if this turns out to be a 24/27/28 to 3/6/7 game.

    I can live with this, and I agree the offense is going to be much better than advertised, we only saw a glimpse in the preseason (Redskins game for example)... Brady is very well prepared and it has been documented how he went into the "bunker" after Denver last year and is mentally and physically ready.

    Pats 27
    Bills 10

    Scores by Watson, Dillon and the defense

    Gostkowski goes 2 for 2

    3 sacks by the D, all by different players

    2 ints

    7 different players catch balls

    Buffalo's TD is largely set up by a long kick/punt return.

    Dillon 26-90 and 1TD
    Maroney 13-60
    Watson 8-109- 1TD
    Gabriel 5-65

    Defense 5 Sacks, 3 turnovers- 2INTs and Bruschi will recover a fumble for a TD

    We will dominate the Bills.

    I agree with the post above that the Bills get under 10 today. I think they may get 3 or 6 ...

    I also think the Pats will spread the Bills LBs out by pulling their TEs wide, then attacking the middle of the field with the running game (I mentioned that in the discussion thread). I predict the Pats time of possession advantage will be huge.

    All in all, I predict a grinding, never-in-doubt victory that'll be boring for casual fans but extremely enjoyable for me.

    Something tells me the Bills will score a little more than expected. I am expecting more of a 28 to 17 win for the pats.
