Fearless Freddie’s Football Forecast

The unbeaten Buffalo Bills resume their residency in the NYC area this week by meeting the New York Giants. The revamped Bills rallied for an improbable 17-16 win over the New York Jets in their opener and will find similar success Sunday in the Meadowlands.

Buffalo’s standout defense will shine again and the Josh Allen-led offense will show improvement.

Freddie sees it this way:

Bills 20, GIANTS 16
