Fearless Freddie’s Football Forecast

By FEARLESS FREDDIE

Harry Plotter

BACK AT HOME after a most depressing loss to the Jets, the Buffalo Bills have a tough test in the Baltimore Ravens Sunday.

Let’s hope EJ Manuel will be able to handle the pressure better than he did a week ago. If not, the Bills could be out of this one by halftime. Joe Flacco just might have a field day against the Buffalo defense.

Freddie sees it this way:

Ravens 35, BILLS 21
