Welcome to the initial MusketFire.com staff projections for the upcoming New England Patriots game. Week one kicks off with the Patriots on the road in Buffalo, NY to face the Buffalo Bills.  Last season, the Patriots had a field day running the ball against Buffalo, but with the Bills importing former New York Jets defensive coordinator Mike Pettine and his Rex Ryan hybrid 3-4 defense, the Bills expect to be much improved against the running game this season.  This week, the Patriots face a depleted Bills secondary, as the Bills lost top cornerback Stephon Gilmore to injury for the first half of the season, inexplicably let safety George Wilson walk this offseason, and with disgruntled safety Jairus Byrd possibly not suiting up, the Patriots may be spending a lot of time attacking by air. On offense, the Bills have rookie quarterback E.J. Manuel healthy enough to start, but no one on the New England defense will be sleeping on explosive running back C.J. Spiller.  What does the future hold for Sunday afternoon? Well, the dedicated staff at MusketFire.com has it covered. Here are the staff predictions for the Patriots versus the Bills matchup in week one of the NFL season!

    The Bills will try and establish the running game to keep the ball away from Brady. The Pats will stack the box and force the Bills to put the ball in the air. Brady will throw four TDs and the Bills will have to abandon a heavy running attack and throw the ball to try and keep up with the Pats offensive explosion.
    passing yards – 353
    rushing yards – 162

    Pats win 45-17
