This is going to be an interesting game for sure, knowing that it is a battle between the two rookie starting quarterbacks. Both QB Geno Smith and QB EJ Manuel have a win in comeback fashion to show for their work thus far this year, and they both nearly have an upset of the New England Patriots. What they don’t have though, are similar statistics. Manuel has only thrown one pick in his time in the NFL, while Smith has four, and the rookie from FSU is completing nearly 70% of his passes. Manuel also has a much better running game with RB CJ Spiller and RB Fred Jackson in the backfield, as these two men are combining to average right around 4.2 yards per carry. RB Bilal Powell and RB Chris Ivory are good for just about three yards per carry.
And that’s why we don’t really understand what the oddsmakers are doing with this one. Buffalo is the better of these two teams as we see it, and we really don’t think it is all that close. The Bills proved last week that they have a defense that can get the job done if need be, as they managed six sacks against QB Cam Newton and kept him in the pocket all day long. If they can force Smith to hold onto the ball for too long, getting to 10 sacks isn’t completely out of the question in this game. Buffalo should take this one relatively handily as we see it, and it is a joke that the Bills are underdogs.
