The Buffalo Bills should win this game by a decent margin, but they also shouldn’t have gotten smoked by the Colts at home or lost to the Jaguars. The New Orleans Saints have their issues as well, and who would have thought Siemian would be a downgrade from Jameis Winston? With all that said, we’re getting a free touchdown with the home team on a short week. I also have lost a lot of confidence in the Bills, so nothing surprises me here. Give me the Saints.
