The Buffalo Bills are road underdogs to a New York Giants team that collapsed in the final five minutes of last week's game against the Seattle Seahawks.
If the Detroit Lions' start has been unimaginable, the Buffalo Bills 4-1 start is right below that. However, not even that start will have them favored on the road against the New York Giants on Sunday. The Giants opened as two-point favorites, according to Odds Shark, and are now favored by a field goal. And the Bills are likely comfortable in that underdog role.
The close line is helped by the Giants' loss last Sunday to the Seattle Seahawks. It's actually quite fair to call it a collapse by the Giants. With roughly five minutes left in the game, the Giants held a three-point lead, 25-22, but the defense and Eli Manning squandered it. After the Seahawks drove 80 yards for a score, Eli Manning wound up throw a pick-six and then another one to end the game.
The Bills, on the other hand, rebounded from a loss to the Cincinnati Bengals with a victory over the Philadelphia Eagles, the epitome of a struggling team. Bills defenders came up with four interceptions on Michael Vick passes and they surely can do that against Eli Manning.
