Buffalo Bills @ Los Angeles Chargers

Bills -11.5, O/U 44


The Bills have clawed their way back into the playoff picture, defending their home turf and dismantling the Cowboys in their most recent outing. James Cook was the story of the game, scoring a pair of touchdowns, while also recording career-high marks in carries (25) and rushing yards (179). Since Joe Brady took over as the offensive coordinator, Cook has logged over a hundred yards from scrimmage in four consecutive games, averaging 140-plus combined rushing and receiving yards (141.1).
