By Mike Reiss

ESPN NFL analyst Tedy Bruschi hosts a weekly chat on ESPNBoston.com that breaks down the Patriots' most recent game. On Monday, Bruschi chatted about the team's 23-21 season-opening win over the Bills (recap here) and some of the topics included:

1. Dissecting the defensive breakdown that led to Robert Woods' touchdown catch.

2. "Patriots running back job is up for grabs. Who wants it?"

3. The benefit of being able to have a learning experience while also getting a victory.

4. Danny Amendola's groin injury and questions about his availability for Thursday's game against the Jets.

5. Comparing Shane Vereen to former Detroit Pistons backup Vinnie "The Microwave" Johnson.
