Week 13: vs Cleveland Browns
Mark and Joe say: Good matchup. Both of these teams are jockeying for a playoff spot - Buffalo is knotted up with Miami at 6-5 in second in the AFC East and looking for a wild card slot, while the Browns are 7-4 but in last place in the fiercely competitive AFC North (Cleveland, Baltimore, and Pittsburgh are all sitting at 7-4, a half-game behind 7-3-1 Cincinnati) - this game is a must-win for both clubs as we enter the stretch run into the Second Season.
Buffalo bounced back from a 9-22 loss in Miami two games ago to maul the Jets 38-3 in a special Monday night affair from Ford Field in Detroit - Anthony Dixon (12/54/1 rushing with 1/8/0 receiving) and Fred Jackson (10/32/1 rushing with 3/13/0 receiving) both found their way into the end zone during the contest. Bryce Brown chipped in 6/20/0 rushing to the team effort as the Bills' many-headed monster was productive in the blowout win (29/116/2 rushing as a team).
The Browns' rush D allowed a TD to Steven Jackson last week (23/63/1 for the Falcons as a team), but only 2.7 yards per rush. Two weeks ago, Houston trampled this same club for 54/213/0 rushing - the Browns' defense has swung wildly during recent contests. To date, Cleveland is ranked 29th in the NFL averaging 134.9 rushing yards allowed per game, with eight rushing scores handed out.
This looks like a good matchup for the home-team Bills.
