Packers at Bills Preview

by Steve

Week 15 and the Buffalo Bills are still sorta "in it" vis-a-vis the playoffs.  While that is shocking because the Bills are never in contention for the playoffs it still seems a bit hollow since the Bills chances of actually making the post season is low single digits.  Oh and the QB is a bum the coach is a bust and the Bills may not be favored again this season.

Luckily, the Bills get to play an overrated Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers in Buffalo this Sunday.  The Green Bay Packers have never won a game in Buffalo. Granted, the Packers are much more successful than the Bills and have a far superior quarterback but I surprisingly feel pretty confident going into this game at the Ralph.

Yes, Rodgers only has 3 picks this season, is as athletic as any QB and straight slings the rock; but besides one lucky run a few years ago (in which Vick and the Eagles should have beat GB in the Wild Card game) the Packers don't win big games.  Maybe moron Mike McCarthy deserves most of that blame AND Doug Marrone is just as big of a moron but uhhh.  Oh yeah, the Bills defense is legit!  They are the nobody believes in us team!  Even Vegas is realizing this!  The line opened BUF +7 and it is currently down to 5.

As long as the Williams bros, Dareus and Hughes get in A-Rodg's face, don't get run over and Orton can score 27 points the Bills will win.  Or maybe I'm just biased because I never thought Rodgers was that good and he's killing it this year.  We'll see.  Oh and here is a break down of the stats for both teams:
