The Jacksonville Jaguars will play against the Buffalo Bills on Sunday at Ralph Wilson Stadium. Neither team is in the playoff hunt but both are already experimenting for next season.
Jacksonville seems to have resigned from seeing Blaine Gabbard (injured, demoted) as a cornerstone of their future. They will continue to play Chad Henne the rest of the way as they attempt to see if he can be the starter in 2013. The move may have as much to do with an underwhelming incoming quarterback class as it does with the actual ability of Henne.
Buffalo’s head coach Chan Gailey and general manager Buddy Nix both have spoken critically of their quarterback as well. The team plans to draft a quarterback to replace Ryan Fitzpatrick but that is not where the changes stop. CJ Spiller has taken over as the lead running back on the Bills as the team will hope for more flashy plays from the third year player.
So what is the spread in the Jaguars and Bills game?Buffalo is a six point favorite over Jacksonville. The over/under or total points for the game is set at 45.5 points.
Buffalo has shown flashes of putting up large sums of points but they have been inconsistent. Jacksonville struggled to score early in the year but since switching to Henne they have been significantly better. They have scored 61 points over their last two games against Houston and Tennessee.
Tireball.com Prediction: Do not base your picks on us but we like Jacksonville in this one. We like what Spiller brings to the Bills offense but the resurgence of Jacksonville with Henne is too much for us to ignore.
