Lions +3 over Bills
The Lions have their flaws. This team put a few guys on IR this week and they are missing a few key running backs. Matthew Stafford is not at 100 percent, but he is one of the tougher guys in the NFL. The key to this game is the Buffalo running game with McCoy most likely missing todays contest and Chris Ivory being iffy as well. You can’t as a football team rely on Josh Allen to be a running QB all day. Sooner or later this guy is going to get hurt. The Lions have the linebackers and the secondary to keep Allen in check and I don’t think he has the accuracy to beat them either. The Bills FG kicker has also missed practice all week because of a blind side hit last week. Detroit could lay an egg with all the preseason expectations, but with a brand new coaching staff I don’t think they will. The Detroit defense played great last week. I look for them to extend that momentum into today. Take the Lions.
