Bills vs. Jaguars Predictions
The Buffalo Bills and Jacksonville Jaguars looked like two of the up and coming NFL teams last season, but both have taken a huge step back this season. This should be a very sloppy game, and neither starting quarterback in this game has looked very sharp.

Bet the Jacksonville Jaguars -3.0 over the Buffalo Bills.
