NFL Bargain Bets: Week 2
September 13th 2008

Buffalo Bills (+5.5) at Jacksonville Jaguars
This one is pretty straightforward. When you take away the core strength of a
team, it's likely to struggle. Any football fan knows that Jacksonville likes to
run the ball. Everyone knows it and yet they do it successfully anyway (most of
the time). Also, as any football fan knows, running dominance starts with
offensive linemen. A good offensive line can make an average back look great,
and a bad offensive line can make a good back look awful. If you want any proof
of this just look at what Larry Johnson did a few years ago behind a great
offensive line and what he has done in the past couple of years behind a lousy
one. Jacksonville will be playing this game without three offensive line
starters. The entire interior of their line is out - their center and both
guards. This should be devastating to their ground game, which in essence is the
strength of their offense.
Buffalo is a team on the come this year. They are gaining in strength and many
are starting to believe they could finally overtake a Bradyless Patriot team in
the AFC East. Their defense is strong and should be able to hold Jacksonville
below 20 points. This means that their offense only needs to post a couple of
touchdowns to cover. Although they are no offensive juggernaut, they should be
able to do that.
I also love the under in this game.
