While Rex Ryan has had his share of success against Tom Brady and the Pats, New England usually beat his teams when he coached in New York. Also, no matter how well the Bills looked last week, the Patriots have had several extra days to prepare for this game with them playing on Thursday.
Don't drink the Buffalo Kool Aid just yet. The Pats at a pick em is a steal in this spot.
