Fearless Freddie’s Football Forecast

CRUEL LESSON. The Buffalo Bills have been a revelation this season, somehow winning eight games. Unfortunately, win number nine will not be forthcoming Sunday on the road against New England.

The overrated Patriots still have enough to beat the Bills and lay waste to their playoff hopes.

Freddie sees it this way:

PATRIOTS 31, Bills 20

HOME teams are capitalized. Teams picked to win are listed first, followed by the predicted margin of victory. The official Las Vegas odds are in parentheses.
