The public is all over the Bills and rightfully so. Not only are they 4-0 on the year, but Arizona is also coming off an embarrassing performance against the Jets, a game in which they allowed 56 points and Brett Favre to throw for six touchdowns. But the Cardinals are a much different team at home than they are on the road and while Buffalo has played well this year, they’ve also had to hit the road twice in back to back weeks and must fly across country for Sunday’s game. Don’t be shocked if Arizona bounces back this week, although they must do so without Anquan Boldin, their fantastic wide out who suffered a nasal injury after being hit in the fourth quarter last week in New York. We predict the Cardinals over the Bills 23-20.
