Week 7 of the NFL season is going to be quite interesting, as there are a slew of matchups that are going to have a massive effect on the 2012 playoff race. Two teams that are on the outside looking in at the moment, the Buffalo Bills and the Tennessee Titans are going to square off as a part of that Week 7 slate, a game in which Buffalo is favored by a field goal.
The Bills might be favored by three on the NFL odds, but that doesn’t mean that they are going to have the advantage when push comes to shove.
History is definitely on the side of the Titans, knowing that they have won four straight games in this series and have covered three in a row. Tennessee has also gone 7-1 SU and 6-2 ATS dating back to 1995 against the Bills. In the last four, the Titans have averaged 30.5 points per game.
QB Jake Locker probably isn’t quite set to be back in the fold yet, but QB Matt Hasselbeck and his Titans are coming off of their best game of the year against the Pittsburgh Steelers. RB Chris Johnson had one of the best games that he has had in a win in quite some time, as he rushed for 91 yards and had another 23 as a receiver. WR Kenny Britt had his first touchdown of the year as well. Hasselbeck also had four completed passes of at least 25 yards.
More good news for the Titans? Buffalo QB Ryan Fitzpatrick has turned the ball over three times and has just one touchdown against Tennessee in two games in his career.
Kickoff from Ralph Wilson Stadium takes place at 1:00 p.m. ET in a game that will be shown regionally on CBS
