The Bills are home underdogs as they host T.O. and the Bills. Making an NFL bet on this contest should be interesting with the Bills trying to send a message to their former teammate.
NFL wagering online numbers lists the Bengals as three-point road favorites with a total of 35. Much of the attention in this game will be on Terrell Owens. He played for the Bills last season but left for Cincinnati in the off-season. The Buffalo secondary has said they want to give him a rude welcome home.
Bills Want to Send a Message to T.O.: The Buffalo secondary has said that they want to shut down Owens and the Bengals. We all know that the Bills are not very good but there is one thing they do pretty well and that is shut down the pass.
Teams run all over the Bills but the Buffalo secondary with cornerback Drayton Florence and safety Donte Whitner is actually pretty good.
Very Good Buffalo Secondary: You might not realize that the Bills had the second best pass defense in the NFL last season. The Bills have to be able to hang their hat on something because they are not very good anywhere else. They can’t stop the run and their offense is terrible.
Is There Any Hope for the Bills? Buffalo won last week against the Indianapolis Colts but in the preseason everyone wins against the Colts who don’t care about playing their starters at all. Can Buffalo win this week? The starting quarterback for Buffalo is Trent Edwards and he inspires no confidence.
The better quarterback might be Brian Brohm and he is putting pressure on Edwards. He is definitely better than Ryan Fitzpatrick and it may not be long before he takes over the starting job from Edwards.
Yes, the Bills could win this week but it they do it will probably be because they played better in the second half. The way to go in this game could be under the total as Buffalo looks to shutdown T.O. and the Cincinnati offense.
