Are you ready for some football?

Here we are after the bye week and the patriots are getting ready to face the Bills. Not exactly big competition, but they are still a pro team in our league, so... Let's take a look at what they've got.

Whether it's Kelly Holcomb or former starter J.P. Losman at quarterback, the Bills have completed just four passes of 20 yards or longer - and only one on the road.

Poor pass protection, a banged-up offensive line and overthrown passes have limited what the Bills can do.

Or at least that's what the story on the Bills has been posted as everywhere. What's not being pointed out is Kelly Holcomb's 95.2 QB rating, or McGahee's 4.2 average rushing. Or perhaps you'd be interested to know that the Bills have 9 Interceptions already. I know the Pats are 8 point favorites, but if you overlook the Bills, they'll run you over.

Of course, that's not the big story this weekend. Patriots fans are excited to see Bruschi back in uniform once again. Although we've all been nervous about what his decision should be, Teddy has been a fan favorite for years now. We were excited to see him in the probowl last year, and I for one am looking forward to seeing him there again this year.
