Analyzing The Buffalo Vs Denver Week 14 NFL Online Betting Lines
For the Buffalo Bills this one is about stealing one from in a game they probably have not business playing in, especially if want to stay in the hunt for an AFC Wildcard spot as they are currently at 7-5 after a 26-10 victory over the Cleveland Browns last weekend.
The Bills have the 21st ranked passing offense and the 24th ranked rushing attack and are averaging 22.0 points per game, 16th in the NFL. QB Kyle Orton has thrown 2000 yards, 13 TDs & 5 INTs with a 92.0 passer rating after taking the team over from EJ Manuel. Rookie WR Sammy Watkins has 51 receptions for 695 yards, 5 TDs in the season but has laid a few stinkers in the last few games. Orton has delivered the ball to fellow WR Robert Woods who has 49 receptions, 550 yards & 3 TDs. RB Fred Jackson, who has battled injuries for much of the season, has rushed for 351 yards and Anthony Dixon is averaging 4.2 yards per carry recording 357 yards in 86 attempts with 1 TD in 2014.
Buffalo’s defense will have to win the game for the Bills. They lead all teams in the NFL with 48 sacks and in recent weeks Peyton has proved not to be able to move the ball when he is pressured. Overall the Bills defense has been outstanding allowing just 18.1 points per game which is second best in the NFL and a fifth best 312.4 yards.
The Denver Broncos are tied with the Patriots at 9-3 at the top of the AFC, but having lost to New England earlier this year puts them 2nd. After being upset by the St. Louis Rams in week 12, the Broncos have won two in a row over the Miami Dolphins and the Kansas City Chiefs.
The Broncos have the 2nd best passing offense and are 18th at rushing, but that should change with the emergence of rookie RB CJ Anderson. They are averaging 30.1 points per game which 5th best in the league. QB Peyton Manning has thrown 3737 yards, 36 TDs & 9 INTs with a 107.8 passer rating. WR Demaryius Thomas has 88 receptions for 1255 yards & 10 TDs closely follow by WR Emmanuel Sanders, who has 82 receptions for 1152 yards & 7 TDs. The aforementioned Anderson has started three games this season after Monte Ball and Ronnie Hillman both fell the injury, and that has been enough to lead the team with 536 rushing yards & 1 TD.

"We’ve got to be more consistent," SS TJ Ward said. "It’s important for us to get rolling, get into the playoffs and hopefully get that one seed if we continue to play the way we played (against Chiefs). That’s the type of performance we expect from ourselves and from every individual on the defense."
