Game: Buffalo Bills (9-3) vs. Baltimore Ravens (10-2)
Summary: I have gone back and forth several times on this game. I want the Bills to pull it off and I think they have the kind of roster that can give the Ravens trouble. Plus, they’re at home and will be honoring Doug Flutie at halftime. And heck, ‘Flutie Flakes’ will be sold.
Still, the Ravens are just playing really well right now. They’re coming in to Week 14 on an eight-game winning streak which is the longest in the NFL. Maybe they’re due for a loss but then again, they could just keep rolling.
Should Buffalo want to have any chance in this game, they’ll have to be on top of their game to slow those players down. They’ll also need to control the clock on offense which not only keeps Jackson sidelined, but also helps their own defense rest.
With all that being said, the Bills will keep this one close but Baltimore finds a way to sneak out of New Era Field with a narrow victory.
However, there’s no reason to be discouraged as they’ll still control their own destiny and will remain in striking distance of the Patriots in the AFC East.
Prediction: Ravens 24, Bills 21
