This week’s lock of the week is the lockiest lock of the NFL season so far. The Denver Broncos will be traveling to Buffalo to take on the Bills, and I would see no reason at all for the Bills to win this one, even at home. The Broncos have been nothing short of dominant this year. After winning a close game week one against the quietly frisky Chargers, the Broncos thoroughly shut down the potent Cowboys offense this past week. The Bills on the other hand, have won ugly (besting the atrocious New York Jets in week 1) and lost ugly (losing 9-3 in a field goal party in week 2). The Bills offense is devoid of weapons to help out Tyrod Taylor and they are facing one of the scariest defenses in the league; expect a big day from Von Miller and Co. Somehow the Broncos are only favored by 1.5 points, but I could easily see this getting out of control before halftime.
The Pick: Broncos (-1.5) over the Bills.
