Buffalo at Minnesota

2 units on Buffalo PICK () (risk 2 to return 2) RESULT: LOSS
The Minnesota Vikings were projected to be in for a long season, and what they did in game one last week did little to change that thinking. The Vikings’ QB rotation of Ponder, Webb, and Thompson went 11-27 with no touchdowns and one inerception. Not one of the three QBs did anything to impress. Since QB rotation is key in these games, it does not bode well for them here in this one. Minnesota's offense managed just 23 minutes of possession time in that contest, and had just one attempt inside the red-zone, which failed. The Bills lost a 1-point decision to Washington, but have a three-man QB rotation that features all three that have been starting QBs in the NFL. As these games go, they certainly have the advantage in this one. Play on Buffalo.
