Found December 16, 2012 on AFC East Daily:
Lead writer Nick St. Denis and AFC East Daily contributors Dan Begnoche and Sean Donovan pick the Buffalo Bills' Toronto Series matchup with the Seattle Seahawks.Nick's take:It'll be fun to again see C.J. Spiller in the expanded role he deserves. However, the fact that the Bills are playing it what essentially amounts to a neutral site in Toronto eliminates Buffalo's only other edge. Seattle hasn't traveled well overall this season, but it won't be playing a true "away" game on this trip. Seattle could do some major damage if Ryan Fitzpatrick is even just a little careless with the football.Prediction: Seahawks 22, Bills 14 (Nick's record: 32-10)Dan's take:Despite the team's push for a playoff bid, Marshawn Lynch tramples all over his former team's hopes and pushes his new squad into the playoffs. Seattle's secondary, allowing less than 200 yards a game, keeps Fitzpatrick in check and forces the Bills' offense to rely far too...

It’s a tedious argument that will never go away because the two common reactions to the idea of running up the score are “THAT’S DISRESPECT!” and “WELL, IF YOU DON’T WANT ‘EM TO RUN UP THE SCORE, YOU GOTTA STOP ‘EM!” Both of which are right and both of which...

Pete Carroll Should Not Have to Apologize for Running Up Score With Fake Punt While Leading by 19

Recently, Ed Reed said the NFL is becoming a powder-puff league because of the new rules installed by commissioner Roger Goodell.
