After playing a close game against the Denver Broncos only to lose on a last second field goal in week one, the Bills laid an egg last Sunday against the Pittsburgh Steelers. Ben Roethlisberger threw for 254 yards and Willie Parker rushed fro another 125 as Pittsburgh stuffed the Bills 26-3 at Heinz Field in Pittsburgh.
The Patriots had no such struggles, as they dispatched the typically dangerous San Diego Chargers 38-14 at Gillette Stadium Sunday night. Tom Brady threw for 279 yards and three touchdowns. The Patriots defense shut down LaDanian Tomlinson (18 carries fro 43 yards) and Philip Rivers (19/30 fro 179 yards 2 TDs and 2 INTs).
As the Patriots move on past Video-Gate and the Chargers game, New Engladn turns its attention to division rival Buffalo on Sunday. Patriots Insider Jon Scott and Scout.com's Adam Caplan take a look at the major storylines heading into the game. Some of the questions we asked Adam in Wednesday night's chat:
- How is injured Buffalo tight end Kevin Everett doing and what is the outlook for him?
(Everett suffered a spinal injury in Week one and was paralyzed when he arrived at the hospital.)
- What happened to Buffalo between Week One and Week Two?
- What is the story with J.P. Losman? Is he the right guy to lead the Bills offense or should Buffalo have held onto Kelly Holcomb?
- The Bills are statistically near the bottom of most categories compared to the rest of the league. Is that indicative of where they are at, or do the stats not tell the real story?
- Buffalo traded Willis McGahee to the Ravens in the off-season then drafted Marshawn Lynch. Was that an upgrade?
We also asked Adam about Video-Gate and what the sentiment is around the league. Caplan shared his prediction for the game as well.
