Indy was the better play as predicted by the formula.

If we're going by the formula, Buffalo has been underrated for many games. They had 3 INTs, 1 DFR, 1 TD, 6 Sacks. It was great.

The week before they were rated about 3 from the last! That game, they had 2 sacks, 1 INT, 1 TD. Most underrated defense in the league.

A formula like this can never take into account the weather in Buffalo in late November against a QB who usually has a 1:1 TD:INT ratio. With an improving offense (McGahee + Bledsoe looking much better), their D is an elite play at home in the cold.

I debated all week about picking up Indy's defense to start over Buffalo but in the end I chose not to and they had another big game for me this year.
Thanks to Metroid for the sig!
