Free Analysis: The Buffalo Bills earned their first win of the year on Sunday against the Chiefs to go to 1-1 which is good enough for a tie for first place in the AFC East. C.J. Spiller came up big again, but solid defense, special teams and quarterback play also helped the Buffalo Bills break into the win column last week. After committing four turnovers and recording no sacks in a 48-28 road loss to the New York Jets a week earlier, the Bills (1-1) did not give the ball away and had five sacks in a 35-17 victory over Kansas City on Sunday. Buffalo forced three turnovers against the Chiefs and held them to 184 yards through three quarters. The Bills can only hope Spiller can keep up his blistering pace with Fred Jackson likely out a few more weeks with a sprained knee ligament. Spiller leads the NFL with 292 rushing yards and 364 yards from scrimmage after running for 123 and two scores Sunday. His 10.1 yards-per-carry average is the highest by a player with at least 25 carries through the first two games since Cleveland's Jim Brown averaged 11.3 to begin 1963. Thanks to the ground game, Fitzpatrick (373 passing yards, 5 TD, 3 INT) only had to throw the ball 19 times last week, though he passed for two touchdowns and 178 yards without a sack or turnover. Wide receiver Stevie Johnson (6 receptions, 2 TD) and tight end Scott Chandler (6 receptions, 2 TD) both made a pair of catches with one touchdown each while combining for 109 yards.

The Cleveland Browns are improving but that hasn’t meant a win as of yet as they head into Sunday’s game. The Browns are a young team at the skill positions so mistakes are going to be part of the equation for this team and are to be expected. QB Brandon Weeden has now completed 52.8 recent of his passes overall after completing just 34 percent in week one and he has two touchdowns and four interceptions. Trent Richardson has been the only option thus far in the backfield and he has his average up to 3.9 yards per carry with a touchdown and he has five receptions and touchdown. Mohamed Massaquoi leads the Browns receivers with eight catches for 131 yards and Greg Little has five and Alex Smith has four. The Browns defense is allowing 415.5 yards per game with 115 of those yards coming on the ground and 300.5 coming in the air and they have five interceptions and eight sacks. Buster Skrine leads the Browns with 15 tackles, T.J. Ward has 17 takles and a sack, and D’Qwell Jackson has three sacks and two interceptions. Fewer penalties could also help the Browns, as they committed 10 against the Bengals. Two of those were offsides calls on cornerback Dimitri Patterson, who was starting with Joe Haden serving a four-game suspension for violating the NFL's policy on performance-enhancing substances.

Free Pick: Gonna go with the Bills in this one. The Browns are a young and talented team, but with youth comes a lot of mistakes and they have committed many of them with TO’s and penalties. Buffalo’s defense struggled in their opener vs the Jets, but played a great game last week and will be looking to do the same this week vs this bad Bowns offense. On offense the Bills got better last week and CJ Spiller has been big so far and I don’t feel that a weak Browns DL will be able to slow him down. Buffalo is the better team in this matchup. They have the better offense and defense and should walk away with a solid win here.
