So what are we all thinking here?N.E. tries to run up the score in the first half and then takes there starters out in the middle of the 3rd or start of the 4th if there up by 20 or more?And then buffalo gets an easy backdoor cover?

I really like the over.

NE revenge game at home..  Brady will not throw 4 picks this time!

Im thinking over also. If they pull Brady it dont matter their backup kicks behind. Buffalo has a soft defense also along with NE's horrible defense. PAtriots at home so they have to perform for the fans. All signs point to over.

Dont forget that Brady is not that far behind Breez and wants to be well into that 5000 yard club also.  Couple that with a revenge game AND that it is a 1 pm game and wont know the outcome of the Balt and Pitt games AND that Pitt already beat them once AND that NE is at home...........This NE team is not going to go to sleep and Brady will likely shoot for an epic game.   JMHO

NE is still a heavy fav in Vegas and Green Bay is now a dog at home this coming week.  Rodgers too behind to catch up with Breez but could still break 5000, but they dont look to risk it because they dont need too...NE really kinda does.   NE covers IMO.

C'mon people, this is Belichick we're talking about. He doesn't give a SH** about points, or lines, or anything.... He's already wrapped it up for the playoffs, and Brady's got a hurt shoulder? He's not risking it all for that. Gimme the Buffalo Chips +11 - they may not win, but they should cover............

Im just taking the over, the Backup for Patriots can chew up Buffalo and Buffalo will get pleny of points of the Pat's, Not touchin the teams just the over. I agree with quad. 11 is to much to lay. But not taking Buffalo with my hard earned cash.

This game has important seeding implications,so i think Pats come out hard,  but your right, good opportunity for a backdoor cover.

A) Half bets are happy, I strongly advise against them, that's for impulsive youngsters in my experience.

B) This is a Belichick team, you apparently aren't aware of his approach.

I am way up this week after a phenomenal Saturday in hoops and pounding Auburn.  So I may do a couple of small plays, usually I blow off NFL the last week of the year.  Lean on NE minus the points.

Hope everyone is having a winning week as well, GLA!

I suggest you get up to speed with the playoff picture before making any plays today.  NE taking out the starters would be absolutely absurd in this situation.

Sure NE has a sh*tty D, but who is going to score for the Bills?  Maybe a small play on U as well due to weather, as i go through all the weather updates in my email it sounds pretty nasty as usual this time of year out there....back to the pool with the girls.

Wow glad I didn't touch this mess..NE fans should be embarrassed, they don't deserve the top seed, I guess they didn't care.  Gutless.
