The New England Patriots will begin the season this afternoon with a divisional matchup against the Buffalo Bills, who made sweeping changes to their organization this offseason, with CEO Russ Brandon being promoted to President and effectively assuming complete control of the team. Brandon hired head coach Doug Marrone from the Syracuse Orange, who brought offensive coordinator Nathaniel Hackett with him; former Jets defensive coordinator Mike Pettine was hired for the same position with the Bills. In April, Buffalo drafted quarterback E.J. Manuel to replace 2012 starter Ryan Fitzpatrick, and in May, general manager Buddy Nix announced that he would step down, with assistant general manager Doug Whaley being promoted.

UPDATE: Dolphins Enemy Week Post is now up

As we enter the 2012 season the New England Patriots still sit atop the AFC East, the Pats have observed unprecedented dominance winning the division nine times since 2000. Anytime you see individual teams dominate like that it’s time for your opponents to innovate and change the way they are doing things and finally it appears as though the Bills have been able to do that.

When you talk about the New England Patriots two things always come to mind, the first is QB Tom Brady and the other is Head Coach Bill Belichick. These two have become one of the most successful QB-Coach tandems in NFL History having gone 138-40 in games that Brady started. So how do we as Bills fan hope to beat this juggernaut? Well it’s actually quite simple, we just have to do what we do best in three easy steps.

Editor’s Note: This week, we’ll be featuring some articles from the editor’s of our network sites, detailing what they feel they’re teams plan is for taking down the Patriots in 2012.

What could the Patriots get for their first two picks? Who’s my dream pick to fall in the first round? Where would Quinton Coples fit with the Patriots?

If you have a question about anything, tweet it to me @DougKyedNEPD, and I’ll try to include it in the column on Friday. If you aren’t on Twitter, feel free to throw in a question in the comments section.
