Tom Brady's appeal was denied; Buffalo Bills will see Jimmy Garoppolo in Week 4.

It appears that the Bills will only play Tom Brady once this season.

Tom Brady has been a real thorn in the side of the Buffalo Bills. In his career, Brady has gone 25-3 against the Bills. Buffalo will face off with the Patriots twice this year, but it seems that Brady will only play against the Bills once. On Wednesday, Brady's appeal for a rehearing on his four-game suspension was denied.


The quarterback really doesn't have anywhere to go from here and it appears the Patriots will have to play the Cardinals, Dolphins, Texans, and Bills without their starting quarterback. New England's starting QB for the first four weeks of the season will be Jimmy Garoppolo.

In his career, Garoppolo has completed 20-of-31 passes (64.5%) for 188 yards and one touchdown. Some of Buffalo's defenders have seen him once before in the 2014 season finale. 

Preston Brown, Buffalo's starting inside linebacker, reacted to the Brady news on Twitter.


I'm sure many of his teammates had the same reaction to the news. Brady's suspension doesn't guarantee a Bills victory in Week 4 by any means, but Garoppolo is no Tom Brady.
