This is a game that wouldn’t have been a headliner just a couple of years ago. Now, these are two of the more exciting teams in the NFL.
Buffalo is leading the AFC East with a record of 7-2. To the surprise of many, it is the Miami Dolphins in second, with the New England Patriots falling to third.
The Cardinals are in one of the toughest divisions in the NFL, the NFC West. The Cardinals are 5-3 and sit tied for second place with the Los Angeles Rams, just behind the Seattle Seahawks in first. Every game is crucial for them in the playoff race.
Both of these teams are being led by exciting young quarterbacks.
Allen Leads Bills
Josh Allen has been a fantasy football stud this season. If you have had him, you have enjoyed his success this season.
He has thrown for over 2,500 yards and has 19 interceptions, which is good for sixth in the NFL. To go along with that, he only has five interceptions.
His favorite target this year has been Stefon Diggs, who has proven to be a great addition to this Bills team. He has over 800 yards receiving and three touchdowns. His 63 receptions lead the NFL.
The Bills had a big win last week against the Seahawks. That had to give them some confidence.
They lost to the Titans and Chiefs earlier in the season, which led many to doubt whether or not they could hang in there with the better teams in the NFL. The Seahawks win was their best win so far.
Murray Leads Cardinals
Kyler Murray has been one of the most electric quarterbacks in the league this season. He is fun to watch.
He has 2,130 yards passing and 16 touchdowns. That is in addition to the eight rushing touchdowns he has this season.
He has to be pleased that the Cardinals picked up DeAndre Hopkins, who has been his favorite target. He has 634 yards receiving and three touchdowns. His 60 receptions this season are tied for third in the NFL.
The Cardinals can’t afford to lose games in this tough division. It will only allow the Seahawks and Rams to move up, especially after losing their matchup last week against the Miami Dolphins.
The Cardinals enter this game as three-point favorites with an over/under of 56.5.
I like Allen and the Bills to pick up the win here. They have been improving, and the Cardinals took a step back last game against the Dolphins.
The over/under is also very high. I think both of these teams find some success on offense, but not that much.
The pick here is the Bills +3 and the under. They pad their lead in the AFC East with a win.
