    Less than 22 hours to go till kickoff, thought I'd take a look at what some people outside of this forum are predicting for Sunday's game.



    All seven on the panel at the Sporting News are selecting the Pats to win; their average score is 27-12 if my math is right.

    Only two NFL games where they are split with a 4-3 vote: Titans at Giants and Eagles at Jaguars.

    Here's Vinny Iyer's brief outlook:

    Picking against the spread (14 points), the Boston Globe staff is divided.

    Three out of four think the Pats will win by more than 14. Christopher Gasper thinks the Pats will not only cover, he thinks it is the best bet this week. On the other hand Monique Walker not only thinks the the Bills will cover, but they are her choice for a best bet this week. Eric Wilbur predicts the Pats will win 24-21, saying it will be "much more difficult than it should be."

    How is it so tough to pick the Eagles over the Jags?

    Jags have the worst secondary in football....yes there is a team worse than the Pats back there

    Michael Vick + Bad Secondary = 125 Yards Rushing and 170 Passing = win

    Yahoo!'s Les Carpenter, Jason Cole and Michael Silver are all picking the Pats to win. In addition, 99% of Yahoo!'s users are going with the Pats as well. My only question is how somebody who is paid to follow a sport for a living can go just 17-15 picking winners straight up, with no point spread involved, and still be referred to as an expert?

    Nine writers at USA Today are all going with the Pats over the Bills.

    Weekly NFL picks from USA TODAY's analysts - USATODAY.com

    Collectively they don't go against the grain, picking an underdog to win much. With the exception of the Titans-Giants and Jets-Dolphins games, those nine went with the favorite 104 out of 117 times this week. The Pats were chosen most often as the lock of the week, by four panelists.

    Pete O'Brien's prediction is the Pats 30, Buffalo 17.

    Allen Wilson of the Buffalo News predicts the Pats will win 31-19.

    Patriots appear to be vulnerable; can the Bills end the streak? - Bills & NFL - The Buffalo News

    Here is one of his five keys to the game:

    For more on the outlook of today's game from Buffalo's newspaper, follow this link: Bills & NFL - The Buffalo News - breaking local news, sports, business, entertainment, weather and multimedia

    In their poll in which people can vote the four combinations of whether the Bills will cover the 13.5 point spread and the over/under of 42.5 points, the most common answer (44%) was that the Pats win by 14 or more in a high scoring game.
