Bill Belichick will be looked at as the primary genius here (and he is), but credit must go to OC Josh McDaniels and DC Matt Patricia through the first three weeks of the season. Their gameplans have been executed well and have the Patriots 3-0 on the start of the season.
What’s more fascinating is how the Patriots will be getting some of their best players back through the coming weeks whether it’s from injury (Gronkowski, Hightower, Cooper) or suspension (Brady, Ninokovich).
What’s even more fascinating is J.J. Watt continues to disappear when he plays the Patriots and has yet to be apart of a win against them. Is health really a factor as to why he didn’t perform well, or is he just overrated? Depends on who you ask.
If there is one thing that everyone has learned, it’s always been hard to bet against a Belichick-coached team.
Rex Ryan and the Buffalo Bills (0-2) travel to Foxboro where Ryan looks to have his first win since the 2010 playoffs. Rex Ryan is already on the hot seat after a bad start to the season. Should the Bills lose to the Patriots, without their #1 QB, Rex, along with his brother, may be looking for a job elsewhere.
