Week 2: New England Patriots 40, Buffalo Bills 32 (2-0) (Sunday, September 20, 2015)

The Patriots and Tom were spectacular in this Week 2 game. Tom threw for 466 yards, the most ever against the Bills in their history, and also threw for 3 TDs and attempted passes 59 times. It was his 100th game in which he threw at least 1 TD and no INTs, the first QB in history to do. Gronk once again got a touchdown, and two Bills’ DBs yelled at each other after the score. It was the same formation that the Pats used just last week! Awesome sauce! ;)

The crowd was really hyped up at the beginning of the game, because that’s what their head coach, Rex Ryan, is good at: getting his players and fans hyped up. Unfortunately, that doesn’t play well week-to-week in the National Football League unless you deliver success. So far Sexy Rexy hasn’t. He’s a great Defensive Coordinator. Head Coach? Not so much.

Julian Edelman got 11 catches again this week and a TD. Dion Lewis ran for another TD. The offense was steamrolling the Bills after a bit of a slow start. And the Bills began to creep back into the game in the second half but the Patriots crushed their last hopes with an interception. Three rookies played on the Pats’ offensive line against a Bills’ defensive line with 4 first-round picks and $250 million dollars in salary.

Man, Gronk and Jules are firecrackers! Gronk is the big cherry bomb and Julian is the small, sassy sparkler! ;)

Tom is on a mission, along with Bill Belichick and the rest of the Patriots. After Tom’s name was dragged through the mud all off-season, he learned who his friends were. He and the Patriots will lay waste to the rest of the NFL if the stars and planets align just right. Beware Avenging Patriots! ;)

The Pats beat the Bills and the Dolphins lost to the Jaguars while the Jets won, so the division looks like this:

New England 2-0
NYJ 2-0
Buffalo 1-1
Miami 1-1

Next week: the Jacksonville Jaguars come to Gillette Stadium!

I'll confess, this game worried me going in and my fears seem justified for the first set of possessions. But boy did the Pats make their adjustments! Some sloppy mistakes at the end almost turned it back into a game but thanks go again to the D for getting a key turnover.

I have Edelman and Gronk in my fantasy league and couldn't be happier. Online, someone said Edelman is Robin to Gronk's Batman, but I said no, they're much more like Green Lantern and Flash (one of the Brave and Bold combos). Equally powerful in very different ways. Focus too much on one and the other will punish you.

I'll admit that I wouldn't have been surprised at a loss in this game with all the factors of being on the road, early in the season, rookie O-linemen against studs, etc., but the Pats always have a way of winning against the Bills. :)

Heh, though Robin has his own power, I can see your Green Lantern and Flash comparison. They are both amazing! And I'm hoping Scott Chandler can do well and we get Brandon LaFell back. Amendola might finally do something this year!
