appearance in 17 years Authentic Jeremy Hill Jersey , the Buffalo Bills looked nothing like a playoff team in their 2018 debut.It took exactly one game for the Bills to become embroiled in a quarterback controversy, and it comes after neither of their young QBs played well Sunday in a soggy 47-3 loss to the Baltimore Ravens.Making his third career start, Nathan Peterman didn't make it out of the third quarter. Backup Josh Allen, the seventh overall pick in the draft, wasn't much better.Oh, how the Bills miss Tyrod Taylor, who was traded to Cleveland during the offseason.Peterman went 5 for 18 for 24 yards with two interceptions, a quarterback rating of 0.0. He was pulled with Buffalo trailing 40-0.After winning the job from Allen in the preseason, Peterman is once again fighting to be No. 1."I'm going to look at everything," coach Sean McDermott said. "It's too early to go one way or the other."Allen completed six of 15 passes for 74 yards, ran for 26 yards and guided the Bills on their only scoring drive. His numbers weren't all that much, but they sure beat the ones Peterman put up."Really, I thought he made some pretty decisive throws in there, into some tight windows," McDermott said of the former Wyoming star. "Used his feet at times well. I thought he had pretty good command of the huddle and the offense at the line of scrimmage."It was a small positive takeaway from an absolutely brutal start for a team that went 9-7 last year and beat out the Ravens for an AFC playoff spot by virtue of a tiebreaker.While it appears the Ravens have made progress Youth Danny Shelton Jersey , the Bills have regressed. The offensive line couldn't protect the quarterbacks, the running backs couldn't find space to run and Zay Jones was the leading receiver with three catches for 26 yards."There were times where I thought we could have been better up front. There was times where we needed to catch the football. There were times we hurt ourselves with penalties," McDermott said. "It's not just one guy. It's a full, total team effort there."Special teams contributed, too, and not in a good way. Stephen Hauschka was woefully short on a 52-yard field goal try, the Ravens used a 51-yard punt return to set up a field goal, and Baltimore scored a touchdown after Buffalo punter Corey Bojorquez fumbled a snap.All in all, it was a performance to forget. If only they could."You can allow this to define you," defensive tackle Kyle Williams said, issuing a warning to his teammates. "Everybody has to look in the mirror and ask, 'What can I do better?' and make that choice. The only way we're going to get better is to get back and learn from it."New England Patriots 2018 roster breakdown: #77 OT Trent Brown The New England Patriots currently have 89 players on their active roster. However, only 53 of them will be able to survive the cutdowns on September 1 and ultimately make the team. Over the course of the offseason, we take a look at the players fighting for those spots to find out who has the best chances of helping the Patriots recapture the Vince Lombardi Trophy.Today, the series continues with one of New England’s projected starters along the offensive line.Name: Trent BrownPosition: Offensive tackleJersey number: 77Opening day age: 25Experience: 3Size: 6’8 4Stephon Gilmore Jersey , 380 lbs.2017 review: After earning the San Francisco 49ers’ starting right tackle job in 2016, Brown returned in the same role in 2017. And like he did one year earlier, the former seventh-round draft pick again proved to be a productive player that started every game – at the least the ones for which he was healthy: Brown appeared in 10 games before being placed on season-ending injured reserve in mid-December because of a shoulder injury.The Florida product, who had already missed one game earlier during the regular season because of a concussion he suffered in week seven, originally hurt his shoulder in practice coming off San Francisco’s week 11 bye. He sat out one game because of the issue, but was back in the lineup the following week and went wire-to-wire. However, his injury worsened and he was ultimately shut down for good.All in all, though, 2017 was still a good season for Brown. According to analytics website Pro Football Focus, he produced the best year of his still young career and ranked 19th among 81 qualifying offensive tackles through 13 weeks. A big reason for that was his excellence as a pass protector: the behemoth lineman surrendered only one sack, five quarterback hits, and nine hurries when on the field.Despite being a successful right tackle over the 2016 and 2017 seasons, however, Brown was not guaranteed a starting spot heading into 2018. After all, the 49ers opted to invest the ninth overall draft selection in Notre Dame product Mike McGlinchey – a move that made Brown expendable and put him on the trade market.2018 preview: One day after San Francisco drafted McGlinchey Deatrich Wise Jr Jersey , the team sent Brown and a fifth-round pick to the Patriots for a third-round selection. Acquiring Brown, who is currently on the final year of his rookie contract, gave New England another player to compete for a left tackle job that had been vacated by long-time starter Nate Solder leaving the team via free agency. It did not take long for Brown to fill Solder’s old role.While he was still limited during OTAs, Brown settled into the starting left tackle spot during minicamp. Ever since then, he protected Tom Brady’s blindside and proved to be a dominant force at times: the 25-year old not only brings impressive size to the table, he also displayed quick feet and nimble moving skills during practice. Consequently, he is expected to be New England’s day one starter at left tackle.As such, Brown will rarely leave the field this year. Solder, for comparison, was on the field for 97.9% of the Patriots’ offensive snaps last season and – barring any injury – Brown will see similar playing time. If he will also be able to replace Solder’s productivity remains to be seen, but the early signs have certainly been encouraging.
