Extra Points

Opposing perspective

The Patriots open the 2009 NFL season at home against the Bills, a team they’ve beaten 11 straight times.

Thus, when considering the top questions facing the Bills this season, it makes sense that Buffalo Bills.com lead journalist Chris Brown has “Can they topple the Patriots?” high on the charts. The website rates it as the seventh-most important question facing the Bills.

Brown details some of the elements he feels the Bills must have to snap the streak:

  • Pressure on Brady
  • Be able to adjust
  • Big plays
  • Be aggressive

    In the end, I’d concur with Brown that the Bills — personnel-wise — appear to be in the best position they’ve been this decade to possibly snap the streak.
