Week 12: Buffalo at Jacksonville

Well I’m still mid-travel, but I figured I’d better get a word up before the Bills’ game at Jacksonville. This is another tough one. Jacksonville has been one of the more consistent teams this year. David Garrard hasn’t thrown an interception all year and has been very effective at throwing and handing the ball off in order to win games.

Of course, Jacksonville has the league’s best 2-man running back core with Fred Taylor and Maurice Jones-Drew. Last year Buffalo was able to beat the favored Jaguars, but I don’t know if they will be able to do it twice in a row. Buffalo does well when they capitalize on mistakes made by the opposition. Jacksonville rarely makes mistakes.

Jags’ top pass coverage guy, Rashean Mathis, is questionable with a groin injury, but if he plays, he seems to always give the Bills a very hard time. With Marshawn Lynch out for his second game in a row, I really don’t have a bright outlook on this road game for Buffalo.

Prediction: Buffalo 6 | Jacksonville 17
