2013 Week 1

2013 Week 1

Week 1 of the 2013-14 NFL Season has just concluded with the Patriots narrowly picking up a win against the Buffalo Bills and their rookie QB EJ Manuel. Stephen Gostkowski hit a 35-yard field goal with 5 seconds left to send the New England Patriots to a season-opening 23-21 win.

Kinda reminds you of some of the late dramatic Vinatieri kicks of yesteryear, but for a season opener, this just merely had us holding our breath to start out the year on the right foot. 1-0 feels pretty good, but at what cost.

Of course Vereen is out for few weeks with a broken arm, which makes his performance all that more impressive: 14 rushes for 101 yards plus 7 receptions for 58… Those are Matt Forte numbers.. but I do have faith in Ridley and Blount and maybe Edelman can become this teams version of James Jones, but that seems like that is a stretch. Amendola definitely won the game for us with his Welker-like series of catches in the 4th quarter, lets just hope he stays healthy and we can move the ball around with some deception, because we have a least a few threats. Have to play better though, because the Bills are not an Elite team, and neither are the Jets, so I hope to see some Rex Ryan tears in next weeks post-game interview. Maybe he’ll turn the jets on and fart in the mic instead of just turning his back to the camera. HA.
