The Buffalo Bills’ Season is just around the corner. The Bills will once again be fighting for a spot in the wildcard of the playoffs. The reason the Bills are fighting for a wildcard spot and not the division is that they play in the AFC East, which is the same division as the New England Patriots.
If Sammy Watkins can stay healthy and if Tyrod elevates his game, first-year coach Sean McDermott will be able to reach the NFL playoffs. This could be the first time the Bills made the playoffs in 17 years.
Running Back LeSean McCoy will have an amazing season and will finish 3rd in rushing behind Ezekiel Elliot and Le’Veon Bell. In the offseason the Bills fired General Manager Doug Whaley who had made some bad moves for The Bills in his time with the team, this was a great move for the Bills!
The Bills are a sleeper team this year and in the early power rankings, they are ranked 26th. They will surprise a lot of people this year with their young core.
If the Bills make the playoffs, I can’t see them winning in the wild-card round, due to the sheer amount of talent in the AFC. Teams such as the Steelers who have the ‘Killer B’s’ (Ben, Brown, and Bell), and also teams such as the Patriots and Raiders who are powerhouses in the AFC.
The Bills have the talent to make the playoffs, the only questions that remain are if they will use that talent the correct way, and will the Bills be the sleeper team of the year or will they be the team everyone believes them to be at the bottom of the NFL?
