It wasn’t a very pretty opener for the New England Patriots in Buffalo, but they were able to outlast the Bills for a 23-21 win. 

Starting out this game, it was very clear that the Patriots were missing some of their favorite offensive options. No more Wes Welker, Gronk sidelined and Hernandez, we all know that story.

Despite missing out on those players, Tome Brady was able to find new weapons of choice with Danny Amendola and Julian Edelman. They went up 10-0 early, but Buffalo was able to hold off Brady and go up 21-17.

Buffalo looked like they might come away with a win, and rookie QB EJ Manuel might get a win is his debut. However, the Bills new hurry up offense would come back to bite them. Bad clock management ended up giving the Patriots a late advantage. They climbed back to 21-20. Gostkowski cam out with 10 seconds left, and hit a field goal to give the Pats the lead, and the win, 23-21.

Tom Brady threw 288 yards, 2 TDs and an interception. Danny Amendola caught 10 passes for 104 yards. Julian Edelman had 79 yards, and caught both TDs from Brady. On the running side of things, Shane Vereen had 101 yards on 14 carries.
