The quarterback match up on Sunday: a rookie vs. a three-time Super Bowl champ.
Tom Brady comes in to the game having only lost to the Bills twice since taking over at QB in 2001. During his 14 years, he helped turn the Patriots into a team that contends every season.
That is what the Bills hope they get from EJ Manuel. It will be a big test to start the season having to go blow-for-blow with who many believe is the best in the game.
"He’s one of the best quarterbacks to ever play and as a young guy, obviously he’s been in the league a lot longer than I have so he’s somebody that I’ve always looked at and thought he was a great quarterback. He’s a winner, that’s what he’s known as, that’s what I want to be known as as well. He’s a competitor now. Have to go out and beat them," Manuel said.
