Fearless Freddie’s Football Forecast

By FEARLESS FREDDIE

BACK TO WORK. The Buffalo Bills resume their season at home Sunday against the winless Miami Dolphins. The 4-1 Bills are favored by a gaudy 17 points.

Fresh from their bye week, expect the Bills to be rusty early but finish strong against their longtime AFC East rivals.

Freddie sees it this way:

BILLS 24, Dolphins 14

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