New England Patriots (11-5): The New England Patriots offense will look very different on opening day, specifically the receiving corp. Wes Welker has left for Denver, Aaron Hernandez is behind bars, and Rob Gronkowski will likely be watching from the sidelines after undergoing surgery to repair a herniated disk. Wide receiver Danny Amendola is set to replace Wes Welker, but he too has struggled to stay healthy. Tom Brady seems more driven than ever to win the title, but if the injuries continue, even Brady can’t rescue this offense. The Patriots have several big games in 2013, such as road games against Atlanta, Baltimore and Houston, as well as a home game against Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos. This season should be very interesting for the New England Patriots, but a division title is expected.
