    All week I feel a bit uncomfortable. 13 in a row is a lot. Statistics say something has to give. Everyone thinking Pats in a blowout. Whitner saying today that Pats laugh at Bills every year. Now watching the news

    No real worry unless we have a lot of turnovers

    I expect a win and not one that the team has to hold on for,at least that's how I see it

    If you want to worry about something in this game,worry about more injuries to key players.

    Why is your girlfriend, who you say knows nothing about football, talking about football IN BED?! :confused: (I'd suggest another kind of "blowout" ;))

    Statistics actually say that each flip of the coin is independent of the previous.

    Stop posting drunk.

    ok, well the Bills do suck, but they always play us hard. Week one last year was an example. So, although i feel we'll win, i doubt it will be a blowout. One more thing. I can think of alot of things to do in bed with a GF, and talking football isnt one of them. Next time she mentions the game, hit the mute button :D

    It's a classic trap game. Sandwhiched between two big games against our real threats in the division. A bit uneasy but I think BB will have em ready

    I see trap games happening after big wins more than big losses. I think we'll be fine. If we had beaten the Jets I would be more concerned.

    The Bills are probably going to finish up as one of the worst 2-3 teams in the league. I've got no worries about this game.

    Maybe she was referring to the pats covering the 14.5 pt spread? I know i'm worried about that.

    Fitzpatrick will probably have a career day Sunday. I still think we win in a close one.

    This is true, still that Miami game next week looms large.
    Agreed on the overall point though, plus we typically tend to do well after losses. Back to back losses have been very rare since '03.

    I think we'll win, of course. But I don't think it's going to be as high scoring (for us, anyway) as everybody thinks it is. IMO, we win a close, low scoring game. I'll be happy to be proven wrong.

    This.

    Each game is independent of any other game, because there are so many variables to account for. It's the same with games like roulette. You might see the ball come in on red 34 times in a row, but that's no reason to bet on black for the next spin, because every time the wheel spins, the odds are reset, and it's a whole new game.

    Same with football. Each game is separate unto itself, regardless of how many times each team plays the other.

    Don't get caught up in the gambler's fallacy. The fact that we've won 13 straight against them doesn't inherently make us any less likely to win this one. Only makes a difference if players get complacent because of the streak.

    Tom Brady has never lost a home game against a team that finished with a losing record, which the Bills are expected to have.

    I think the worst team Brady has ever lost to at home were the 8-8 Bengals in 2005.

    I get nervous whenever a team is overwhelmingly predicted to win by the media and fans (see the 2007 super bowl). That's how I cashed in by taking the Jets last week, and that's why I wouldn't dream of laying the -13 to -14 points by taking the Pats this week.

    All I can say is I think the Patriots will win this game. Bad news because I am bad luck.
