Will the AFC East Buffalo Bills get a jump on the New England Patriots? With Tom Brady serving a four-game suspension, it is conceivable that the Jimmy Garoppolo-led Patriots could be 1-3 or even 0-4. Garoppolo respectfully shares the same alma mater as Tony Romo, Eastern Illinois University. In the last two years, Garoppolo has thrown 31 times, completing 20 for 188 yards and one touchdown. This year he should perform at a higher level. Garoppolo will practice heavily with the first team during practice and the preseason.
Logical thinking says that Brady comes back and shreds every defense. If the Patriots lose three or more games, Brady will have to return and go 10-2, which we all know he is totally capable of. If the Bills get a jump on the Patriots, Brady will return with a lot of stress. Pressure either creates diamonds or busts pipes.
