This week’s Bills game is blacked out on local television. There are cheap tickets floating around, but I’ll be in Syracuse to see the Canisius basketball team take on the Orange. How tough are the Bills, you ask? So tough that Shawne Merriman could only handle 20 minutes of practice before he got hurt. Bring it on, Detroit!
Detroit (+3) at Bills–Ba Ba Ba Ba Billlllss. I think.
Cincinnati (+7) at Indianapolis–Bengals
Houston (+2) at Jacksonville–Texans
Tennessee at Miami (+1)–Titans
Minnesota at Chicago (+1)–Vikings
Jets at Cleveland (+3)–Jets
Carolina (+6 1/2) at Tampa Bay–Tampa
Kansas City at Denver (+1)–KC
St. Louis (+6) at San Francisco–Rams*
Seattle (+3) at Arizona–Cards
Dallas (+14) at Giants–Cowboys. Line is too big not to.
New England (+4 1/2) at Pittsburgh–Pats
Philadelphia at Washington (+3)–Eagles
