Found October 19, 2012 on The Football Fan Spot:
Tennessee Titans (2-4) at Buffalo Bills (3-3) These two teams are actually very, very similar. Tennessee ranks 29th in yards per play differential and Buffalo ranks 30th. Buffalo also ranks 30th in rate of sustaining drives differential, while Tennessee ranks 31st. I picked both teams for big plays last week because, in addition to other reasons, both teams were coming off back to back losses of 21 or more. Teams in that situation are 33-16 ATS since 2002 and are now 35-16 ATS after both pulled off upset victories last week. However, both teams are now in bad spots because of how they won last week. Both teams won by a field goal late. Tennessee won at home by a field goal as dogs. Teams are 28-50 ATS in that spot since 2002. Buffalo won in overtime on the road as dogs. Teams are 16-31 ATS the following week as favorites since 2002 as Buffalo is indeed favored in this one. So if these two teams are so similar, why do I like Tennessee? Well, there are 6 reasons. For one, Tennessee is...

Enemy Intelligence: Buffalo Bills

The Titans make another visit to Buffalo this weekend against the Bills. It seemed like the book was written on the Bills-a week after giving up 45 points to New England in the second half, they gave up 45 to the San Francisco 49ers in another blowout loss. Then, they visited Arizona and hold the Cardinals-granted, not a great offensive team, though I'd say they're not that...
