With the Rams in utter disarray not only on the field but also off it, the Bills should be an easy pick this weekend right? Well the same thing could have been said last week when Buffalo narrowly beat the hapless Raiders at home. With St. Louis having home field advantage, they might be able to keep the game close. But the team has to rally around quarterback Trent Green, who replaced starter Marc Bulger after head coach Scott Linehan made the change earlier this week. The Bills should win, but watch for a Rams cover. We predict the Bills over the Rams, 23-16.
