Week 8 of the NFL will kick off today with Thursday Night Football, which pits the Tampa Bay Buccaneers against the Buffalo Bills at 6:15 p.m. (Mexico time) at Highmark Stadium.
Both the Bills and the Buccaneers have had an irregular performance so far this season but will seek to right the course in this duel.
Buffalo, which was a clear candidate for the title before the beginning of the season, has not had the expected start and their numbers make it clear, as they have a record of 4 wins and 3 losses, which makes them second in the AFC East.
The Bills’ irregular pace was evident in their loss last Sunday against the New England Patriots, which was unexpected.
Their rival, the Buccaneers, have also had a shaky start, which is reflected in their 3-3 record, which has them currently in second place in the NFC South, below the Miami Dolphins.
Although their numbers are similar, the Bills start as clear favorites, so much so that the betting odds are 1.27 to 1 for them, and for their rivals, the payout is 4 to 1.
Being a duel between teams that do not belong to the same conference, they have only met four times in the last decade, three of the four were won by the Tampa Bay team and one by the Bills.
4 The number of meetings between the Bills and Tampa Bay in the last 10 years, three of which were won by the Buccaneers.
30 The number of years the Bills have gone without playing in a Super Bowl.
