Bills' offense not enough versus Chiefs
AccuScore's computers weren't overly impressed with the Buffalo Bills' offensive explosion last week against a respected Baltimore Ravens' defense.
In a departure from Las Vegas' line of thinking, AccuScore forecasts the Bills as the second-biggest underdogs of Week 8. They will play the Kansas City Chiefs in Arrowhead Stadium.
AccuScore's 10,000 simulations project the Chiefs as 67 percent favorites. Only the Indianapolis Colts have a greater probability this week in their game against the Houston Texans.
Some other AccuScore predictions to consider for the Bills: hot quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick has a 61 percent chance of throwing at least one interception, and if he does, then the Chiefs become 73 percent favorites.
But if Fitzpatrick throws no more than one interception and the Bills' atrocious run defense can keep Thomas Jones and Jamaal Charles under 5 yards a carry, then the Bills turn into 56 percent favorites.
