Patriots wide receiver Randy Moss admitted he was nervous before Monday's 25-24 come-from-behind victory over the Bills at Gillette Stadium.

It hardly showed as Moss caught 12 passes for a game-high 141 yards, but Moss wasn't bashful about how the whole team needed to shake those early jitters.

"It's Week 1, football season is here," said Moss. "When you sit there, the first thing I thought about was getting my chance to go out here on Monday night. I was a little nervous. I'm not going to lie, but me individually, I was nervous for the first game of the season. I settled down, started playing a little better. I can only speak for myself, but it looked like everyone settled down there in the second half."
