The man in the photo above? Obviously, that’s Buffalo quarterback Josh Allen. You won’t be seeing him until December, at least not in Foxboro. But remember that statistic about how many victories Tom Brady had in Buffalo over the years? Well we can’t help but wonder whether we’ll be saying something similar about Allen at Gillette Stadium when we get to, say, 2035.
So why are we bringing this up today?
Because the Bills are a freaking wagon, that’s why.
And so, for the third straight week, we here at Pick It and Stick It are going with the Bills at Miami this week, despite the protestations of yours truly. (See below.) And in case you’re wondering, we’re coming off a rock solid 9-7 performance in Week 2 that gets us back to .500 at precisely 16-16 through two weeks, which is hardly anything to sneeze at when picking every game on the NFL slate every week.
Does that make us the Bills of the wagering community? Hell no. But it doesn’t make us the Carolina Panthers, either.
Once again, we took the democratic approach in Week 3, with Felger, Mazz and Murray casting votes for each game. The majority ruled. (Odds via Draft Kings as of 12:45 p.m. on Thursday, Sept. 22.)
Last week: 9-7.
Season to date: 16-16.
