The Buffalo Bills are coming in to this game with a 2-1 record, but expect their leading rusher to not suit up. The New England Patriots have a 1-2 record and come in to the game without one of their top tight ends. Last season this game provided us with plenty of fireworks and lasting memories as the Bills upset the Patriots. This year could be a repeat and if so we are in for another good game.New England Patriots (1-2): Tom Brady is off to a somewhat of a slow start if you are judging by Tom Brady's standards. He has only thrown four touchdowns through three weeks; he had 11 touchdowns at this point last season. Brady is still a must start this week.Stevan Ridley was very limited last week as the game plan just wasn't heavily involved in the run and he lost more time than usual to Danny Woodhead who is their primary pass-blocking and receiving option.

Tom Brady's Doesn't Think Patriots Have Earned Better Record, Remains Focused on 'Winning'

Expect Brady to pull out one of his “you’re going to win your fantasy game no matter what” games out of the hat...

NFL Week Three: Patriots @ Bills

“It’s not like we sit here in the locker room and say, ‘God, we’re terrible, we can’t make any plays, we’re not even in these games.’ We’re right in them. We just have to do a better job in certain areas. If we do that, we’ll start winning close games. If we don’t, we’ll have a miserable year.

Arizona Cardinals vs. Miami Dolphins Pick Against the Spread

MIAMI DOLPHINS @ ARIZONA CARDINALS (-6.5) The one downside to this pick is the Cardinals don’t necessarily have an offensive juggernaut and won’t light up the scoreboard against a solid Miami defense, but I’m banking on the Cardinals defense dominating the the Dolphins. The Cardinals defense is for real. I’m not overreacting their wins over the Patriots and Eagles either...
