Efficient effort in opener has Patriots' confidence high (The Associated Press)

The Patriots came into the regular season expecting their biggest test during Tom Brady’s four-game suspension to be in their opener at Arizona. The confidence is also high for a franchise that continues to have lots of regular-season success in the rare times Brady hasn’t been the starting quarterback. The Patriots are 11-5 in regular-season games without him since he went down with a torn ACL in the season opener in 2008.
