After a somewhat sluggish first half offensively and defensively against the Bills on Sunday, the Patriots rallied back in the second half against the Bills, blowing them out 52-28. In the process, the Patriots became the second team in NFL history to have a pair of 100 yard rushers (Bolden, Ridley) and 100 yard receivers (Gronkowski, Welker).

Coach Bill Belichick also moved passed Chuck Knox for sole possession for 8th place on the all time win list. There were a lot of positives to take from Sunday’s thrashing of the Bills.

This week, the New England Patriots rebounded from their previous two losses by defeating the Buffalo Bills 52-28 thanks to 45 second-half points. The Patriots racked up 580 yards of total offense and dominated Buffalo through the air as well as on the ground. They forced six turnovers on defense while committing just one penalty.

Tom Brady looked sharp, throwing for 340 yards and scoring four total touchdowns (including one on the ground.) All of New England’s major receiving targets found roles, and running backs Brandon Bolden and Stevan Ridley punished Buffalo’s run defense. Read on for some of the major storylines behind New England’s victory.

New England takes the field on Sunday looking to put an erratic preseason behind them in action against the Tennessee Titans, who won nine games in 2011 and could very well be even more successful in 2012.

The Titans managed to win three games against playoff teams last year – Baltimore, Denver, and Houston – and an upset over New England would significantly strengthen their chances of making a playoff run considering a relatively light schedule which includes games against Minnesota, Indianapolis (twice), Miami, and Jacksonville (twice.) Their team matches up surprisingly well with New England’s: their offense is loaded with dynamic players at skill positions, they have perhaps the best pair of offensive tackles in the league, and their secondary is well-equipped to deal with New England’s passing attack.

Read on in order to discover ten key storylines for New England’s season opener.

With the 2012 NFL season starting in just nine days and most of the 32 starting quarterbacks announced, I thought it was time to release my 2012 QB rankings.

These are based on how I think each QB will perform in 2012. Not based on entire careers, not based on two years down the road, the immediate future.

Take a look at my QB ranks after the jump and be sure to leave your own top 32 in the comments section.
