With no quarterback, its CJ Spiller or bust here for Buffalo. I'm banking on bust.
Not to hate on Andy Dalton, but this is still a very good Bears defense and I can see a big turnover game here.

The Pats are up against a rookie QB in EJ Manuel. As long as they can contain him on the ground, this unit should have a big day against the Bills.
The Bears were easily the best DST in fantasy last season, but the team lost Defensive Coordinator Rod Marinelli and future Hall of Famer Brian Urlacher during the off-season. Despite this, the Bears defensive core remains strong with elite corners Charles Tillman and Tim Jennings, linebacker Lance Briggs and defensive end Julius Peppers - and don't forget about Devin Hester in the return game. Their match-up against an improved Bengals offense is intriguing, but Andy Dalton is no supersta...

The QB situation in Buffalo is a mess. Buffalo offense gave up the 9th most fantasy points to Team Defenses last season with 9.1.
Cincinnati offense gave up the 16th most fantasy points to Team Defenses last season with 8.4.

With the QB situation in Buffalo up in the air, New England should have field day with the Bills Offense
The Bengals are expected to be a pretty good team, but Chicago led the league in takeaways last year and should continue to be solid in Week 1

Patriots have one of the most underrated defenses this season. As soon as Aqib Talib joined this squad, the Patriots pass defense became one you did not want to mess with. When Talib got injured against the Ravens in the playoffs, the Patriots season was over. The addition of Adrian Wilson should make this defense even more lethal.
The Bears once again have a very intimidating defense despite the loss of Brain Urlacher. D.J. Williams and James Anderson are huge signings and Charles Tillman/Julius Peppers/Lance Briggs are all back.
