Fearless Freddie’s Football Forecast

Line Backer

ROAD WOES. Don’t expect a pleasant afternoon watching the Bills Sunday. Things can go wrong in a hurry away from Orchard Park, especially in Florida.

Then there are New Orleans (5-1) and Kansas City (6-0) looming ahead for the Bills in the next two weeks. And don’t expect struggling Pittsburgh to be a pushover, either.

Freddie sees it this way:

DOLPHINS 27, Bills 14
