Bet on the NFLLate on Sunday afternoon, the Buffalo Bills leave the Northeast for the Southwest as they travel to Arizona to take on the Cardinals. The game in the U of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, AZ is scheduled to kick off at 4:05 PM ET, and will be televised regionally on CBS.

The Bills became another casualty of the San Francisco 49ers, losing 45-3. Buffalo barely showed up in this one, allowing the Niners to set a franchise record with 621 yards of offense. The Bills, on the other hand, could manage just 204 total yards. The 49ers held a 311-89 edge in rushing yards, and kept possession of the ball for 13 more minutes than Buffalo. The Bills also coughed it up twice, losing a fumble and throwing an interception. QB Ryan Fitzpatrick threw 16-of-26, for 126 yards. Over the last two weeks, the Bills have allowed 580 and 621 yards, along with 62 first downs. In the last 6 quarters of play, they have been outscored 90-10.

The Cardinals come into this game off of a tough loss in St. Louis to the Rams, 17-3. This was a 15-point spread loss for AZ. The Rams sacked Cards QB Kevin Kolb 9 times, while not allowing a single touchdown from Arizona. Despite this, the Cardinals won the stats game, holding a 20-12 edge in first downs, and a 282-242 edge in offensive yards. Those 9 sacks cost Arizona 52 yards, with 5 penalties costing them 35 more. QB Kolb threw 28-of-50, for 289 yards. In 3 of their 5 games this season, the Cardinals have tallied fewer than 46 rushing yards.
