Editor’s note: NESN.com’s Mike Cole, Ricky Doyle and Andre Khatchaturian deliver their NFL picks every Thursday of the season, and here’s who they like in the Buffalo Bills-New England Patriots Week 4 game, with the line from OddsShark.
Buffalo Bills (1-2) vs. (-4.5) New England Patriots (3-0), 1 p.m.
Mike: Patriots. The Bills benefited from great field position against the Cardinals, but it’s unlikely the Patriots — who spent all Thursday night pinning Houston deep — will allow Buffalo to start drives anywhere close to midfield.
Ricky: Patriots. I’d rather look like a fool for picking the Patriots than for picking against them.
Andre: Patriots. I learned the hard way last week to not pick the Patriots last week. I don’t care who they’re missing from their roster. They’re still superior defensively, much more disciplined, and the extra rest won’t hurt their banged-up roster, either.
