Bills writer Joe Marino talks Bills – Patriots

Bills vs Patriots

Bills vs Patriots

Joe Marino writes for buffalobillsdraft.com  and recently he granted an interview to us about the Bills and their upcoming game against the Patriots.

Patriots Gab: With the New QB in rookie EJ, what kind of offense do you see the Bills running this year?

Joe Marino: Face paced, high tempo, get the ball to the playmakers.

Patriots Gab:  What things are you expecting from the explosive CJ Spiller this season?

Joe Marino: A career year appears likely.  Lots of touches, that produces 1500+ yards.

Patriots Gab: What are your impressions of EJ Manuel and Jeff Tuel?

Joe Marino: EJ Manuel had an excellent preseason and looks like he could have an excellent career as a starter.  Tuel has some ability but does not project as a starter.  

Patriots Gab: What are the Bills strengths and weakness heading into Sunday’s matchup against the Patriots?

Joe Marino: The Bills strength is their pass rush and ability to get the ball to explosive players in a high tempo offense.  Their weakness is pass defense.  

Patriots Gab: What key matchups will you be looking for in this game?

Joe Marino: The Bills secondary without Gilmore and Byrd vs the new Patriots WR’s.  Mario Williams and Jerry Hughes against the Pats pass protections.

Patriots Gab: What area do you think the Bills can take advantage of the Patriots?

Joe Marino: Vertical passing game and running a fast paced high tempo offense.  The patriots linebackers lack athleticism as a group.

Patriots Gab: In 2011 the Bills beat the Patriots in the first matchup 34-31, and in 2012 they came very close to beating the Patriots again, 31-37. Why do you think the Bills are able to get in a high scoring game with the Patriots and come very close to winning it, or winning it like in 2011?

Joe Marino: A high scoring game would favor the patriots considering the Bills inexperience at QB.  The key for the Bills will be getting after Brady to force errors.

Patriots Gab: Which Bills draft pick are you most excited to see play this Sunday?

Joe Marino: Aside from EJ Manuel, it would be Kiko Alonso.  Alonso has been the starter from day 1 at ILB and I am curious to see if he can take charge of the defense.  

Patriots Gab: How do you see the 2013 season going for the Bills?

Joe Marino: I would expect 6-7 wins.

Patriots Gab: Care to give a prediction for the Bills – Patriots game Sunday?

Joe Marino: 28-17 Pats.
