The Patriots’ starting defense was announced as the team took the field tonight, and the public address announcer saved Tedy Bruschi’s name for last. Gillette Stadium roared.
Bruschi, Larry Izzo and Tom Brady took the opening toss at midfield for the Patriots. The Bills won the coin toss, meaning they’ve won the toss in every game so far this year. That has contributed to Buffalo outscoring foes 40-7 in the first quarter this year.
