The three most important positions in the NFL are the quarterback, cornerback and pass-rushers. They also highlight exactly why the Buffalo Bills should not be favored by three.
Brandon Flowers will be reclaiming his starting cornerback spot for the Kansas City Chiefs, who struggled against the Atlanta Falcons' aerial assault.
As will be explained below, the Buffalo Bills aren't exactly toting the same attack. In fact, Flowers will be able to shut down their top threat without much help.
If that's not enough to sell you on a three-point spread, Tamba Hali will be returning from a one-game suspension. And he is among the best at what he does: getting after the opponent's quarterback.
Neither items are good news for Ryan Fitzpatrick.
Fitzpatrick might need to "find" another rib injury to shelter him from criticism for his poor play. Frankly, he's been exposed as nothing more than a dink-and-dunk passer on a team that will be without its starting running back.
It certainly doesn't help that his only legitimate receiving threats are Stevie Johnson and Scott Chandler.
Matt Cassel has a wealth of riches in Dexter McCluster, Dwayne Bowe, Steve Breaston, Tony Moeaki and Kevin Boss. Additionally, he has the option of handing the ball off to established running backs Jamaal Charles or Peyton Hillis.
C.J. Spiller has only performed once. Take the points.
