Found November 25, 2012 on AFC East Daily:
Lead writer Nick St. Denis and AFC East Daily contributors Dan Begnoche and Sean Donovan pick the Buffalo Bills' road contest against the Indianapolis Colts. Nick's take: Bills tailback C.J. Spiller is slated for a big day against a Colts run defense that gives up way too many big scampers. Ryan Fitzpatrick will be good enough, and Buffalo's rushing attack will limit rookie quarterback Andrew Luck and his Colts offense's opportunities by eating a lot of clock. Plus, Buffalo's defensive front pressures Luck into a couple costly mistakes, including a pick to the red-hot Jairus Byrd.

Indy's specialty has been its passing attack, while Buffalo's has been Spiller's explosive run ga...
