If Tom Brady is your QB, your offense will be moving the ball consistently. Gostkowski could have a big season with Welker/Hernandez gone, which limits Bradys options.
Prater may lead the NFL in XP's with his eyes closed. Prater is as safe as they come if not more safe. That Colorado air makes it that much better.

Gostkowski had 4 field goals (out of 6 attempts) and 11 PATs in 2 games vs. BUF last season.
Prater needs to improve his accuracy (81.3-percent) on field goals but he plays on a team that has Peyton Manning at the helm at Quarterback. That alone should net him 50+ PATs with the potential for 60+ or more given all the weapons at Manning's disposal.

Like every year, the Pats will be able to move the ball against the Bills. Last year, he had four field goals and 11 extra points in the two meetings. The preseason struggles will be worked out when playing the Bills and Tom Brady will give Gostkowski two or three field goal chances and two or three extra points.
Prater and the Denver Broncos get the new-look Baltimore Ravens to open up the season on Thursday night. Look for Manning and the offense to move the ball at a quick pace up-and-down the field and give Prater chances for a few field goals and extra points in the revenge game from the playoffs last season.
