Bills Start 2013 Season With Even More Questions Than Patriots
By Gregory Hunt

" If it’s possible for one NFL team to “own” another NFL team, then the New England Patriots definitely own the Buffalo Bills. Since the Bill Belichick era began in 2000, the Patriots are 23-3 against the Bills. The three victories by the Bills came in 2000 (a 16-13 overtime win at New England), 2003 (a 31-0 triumph at Buffalo) and 2011 (a 34-31 comeback victory at Buffalo).

But according to Buffalo wide receiver Stevie Johnson, he alone can turn this lopsided rivalry back in Buffalo’s favor. Speaking to reporters on Monday, Johnson made the claim that Buffalo is capable of beating New England, “Because I’m here. I don’t think they have anybody to stop me.”

To a certain extent, that’s true. New England’s defensive secondary has been a weak spot in recent years, and last season the team was 29th in the NFL in passing defense. However, in order for Johnson to harm the Patriots, someone needs to successfully pass the ball to him. Given Buffalo’s quarterback situation, that’s easier said than done.
