The 2013 season opener at Ralph Wilson Stadium in Orchard Park, NY will be like many games before it. It’s a new season, and both teams have undergone considerable change in the off-season. There has been much speculation about how the Patriots will be vulnerable this season due to the loss of 300+ catches with the departure of Welker, Hernandez, and Lloyd. Also, Rob Gronkowski will be sidelined as he recovers from off-season surgeries. However, the song remains the same. Belichick and Brady are too talented and too prepared to lose to an inexperienced Bills team in the opener.
Prediction: Patriots 36 – Bills 21
Prediction: Patriots 37 – Bills 20
Stevan Ridley continues his strong play against the Bills & the defense makes enough plays for the Pats to win comfortably. Don’t be surprised if the Pats rush for 200 yards as a team.
