It’s also 15-5-1 in Buffalo’s last 21 games overall, 6-2 in its last eight games in October, and 4-0 in the Niners’ last four games in Week 5. Through the first four weeks of the season the Bills have scored 28, 35, 24 and 28 points while allowing 48, 17, 14, and 52 points defensively. The Niners like to run the ball and play good defense but their offense should strike for a couple of big plays to ratchet up the scoring. Plus, if the Bills are forced to start throwing, they have the ability to strike for quick scores as well.
