Over/Under Pick : The Jaguars have been super solid against the run in their last 5, so we think that the Bills will not have much success in the running game. Where Jacksonville has struggled is with passing defense ranking 26th in the league. Luckily for the Jaguars Buffalo’s passing game has been putrid on the road. The blame can’t all go on EJ Manuel’s back especially last week in Tampa when his offensive line allowed 7 sacks to the Buccaneers. EJ though has not been strong on the road and should be kept in check by the Jag’s defense. Jacksonville’s offense looked good in Cleveland as well as early against Houston, but the Bills unit will be a step up. They’ll be without offensive cog Maurice Drew Jones who’s improved play was key to the Jaguars offensive turnaround.
Buffalo lives and dies by the turnover and this game could blow up with a couple of pick 6’s, but we believe that the both teams will keep the play calling conservative. Look for this game to be a 20 -17 type game.
