The Buffalo Bills will put their 4-1 record on the line this afternoon when they take on the host 3-2 New York Giants. The Bills are a bit battered heading into their final game prior to their Week 7 bye, but will be looking to hit that bye on a high note with wins in two straight games and five of their first six.
It won't be easy. The Giants are a highly talented outfit offensively and defensively, they're well-coached, and they'll have extra motivation coming off of an embarrassing 36-25 home loss to Seattle last weekend. They're the type of big-play, physical outfit that the Bills have traditionally struggled with in recent seasons. What's more, the Bills haven't proven much on the road this season; they beat a reeling Kansas City team in the season opener, then lost a close one in a rough outing in Cincinnati two weeks ago. No one's yet sure how good this team can be on the road.
I hope I'm wrong, obviously, but I like the Giants in this one. The Bills are clearly good enough to keep it close, but the Giants have clear intangible advantages today. I'll go Giants 31, Bills 23 as my prediction. What's yours?
