The Bills fooled me again, and I don’t like it! After going against them the last two weeks, I’m going the complete opposite direction, and putting my stamp of approval on the Buffalo Bills as this week’s Lock of the Week. After trading starters for draft picks in the weeks leading up to the season, it looked like they were looking ahead to the draft, hoping to be free fallin’ into the Number 1 pick. Since then, the Bills have been playing some of the best defense in the league, and are leading their division. Their opponent this week however, seem to be on quite the opposite path.
It had been downright brutal to watch the Cincinnati Bengals try and score for the rst couple of weeks, and the team looked like it was heading for a full breakdown. They recently chalked up their rst win, as they rightfully thrashed the Browns this past week, like any respectable team should. All things considered, it is quite amazing the Bengals are favored in this game by 3.5 points. The Bills have been one of the hottest teams this whole year, and the Bengals are decidedly… not. Could the Bills be on the way to running down a dream (in this case, a playo appearance or division title)? That I cannot say for sure, but with the Bengals’ struggling offense, and the Bills’ exciting defense, this game should be favorable to the Bills. They may not win, but they will absolutely cover the 3.5 point spread. Even the losers get lucky sometimes, right?

The pick: Bills (+3.5) over Bengals
