PAT’S THOUGHTS:

I don’t have the numbers in front of me, but the win % of teams coming off getting killed is very impressive.  The theory is that teams get undervalued as a result of a very bad outing, and bounce back the next week.  Another stat is west coast teams traveling east have a very difficult time in the 1:00 time slot.  All that being said, that tells you that Buffalo is the right play here, as hard as it is make.  Only 18% of the pub has the stones to make that play so far.  Fortune favors the bold.
