Zack’s “Quick” Rundown: Man I don’t feel good about this game at all. This game means more than any other regular season game this year so far, and I don’t think I’m being biased on that statement. With the standings in the AFC and specifically the AFC East so tight, a win means so much and so does a loss. The loss of CB1 Tre’ White for the Bills makes this game tough to pick because now their corners are just okay, while their safeties (as a set) are the best in the league. I lean towards the Patriots points here, but slightly. I think the bad weather (HEAVY WING AND SNOW) fits how the Patriots run their offense…dink & dunking, and running it down the middle. I think the Patriots secondary can hold the Bills WR trio, and I think Matt Judon and this pass rush can get through this average OLine. Sounds like I’ve convinced myself to a Pats Moneyline pick. Go Pats.
