NFL lines can often bring great value on such teams as was the case last year with the Miami Dolphins and Baltimore Ravens in their surprise success against the NFL gambling board. The Bills made their share of news this past off season as they acquired the talented but also controversial wide receiver Terrell Owens from the Dallas Cowboys to bring immediate playmaking potential against the NFL lines.
Owens last year caught 69 passes for 1052 yards and 10 touchdowns. Owens was not always a reliable NFL gambling asset, however, as he made key drops against the NFL lines and caused his usual amount of locker room dissention. It is hoped that Owens can take some heat off of last year’s top receiver for the Bills Lee Evans.
Evans, a 6 year pro out of Wisconsin, caught 63 passes against the NFL lines last year for 1017 yards and 3 touchdowns. Trent Edwards will enter camp as the Bills number one quarterback against the NFL lines. Edwards, a 3 year pro out of Stanford, was a 3rd round draft pick of the Bills in 2007. Edwards was inconsistent against the NFL lines last year with a quarterback rating of 85.4 and 11 touchdowns with 10 interceptions.
Edwards also struggled against the NFL lines versus the top teams on Buffalo’s schedule and was pathetic in a week 10 matchup at New England where he had a 49.2 quarterback rating. The fact that Edwards regressed against the NFL lines as the season wore on is a point of concern.
Ryan Fitzpatrick is currently listed as Edwards’ backup. Fitzpatrick is a 5 year pro out of Harvard that spent the past 2 seasons with the Cincinnati Bengals.
Last year in 12 starts with the Bengals, Fitzpatrick compiled a quarterback rating of 70 with 1905 yards, 8 touchdown passes and 9 interceptions. Fitzpatrick figures to see a good amount of action during the exhibition season.
