The Buffalo Bills are coming off a breakthrough 13 win regular season and lost to Kansas City in the AFC Championship Game. Buffalo’s meteoric rise is a direct result of the growth of All-Pro QB Josh Allen, who threw for 4,5444 yards and 37 touchdowns in 2020. WR Stefon Diggs became Allen’s top target and the duo are likely to become even more dangerous with a full offseason to work together.
The Bills can improve in the running game, after rushing for 107.7 yards per game a season ago. RB Devin Singletary and Zack Moss share the load for Buffalo, with Moss looking the more explosive of the two.
For Buffalo to overtake Kansas City for AFC supremacy, their 14th ranked total defense (352.5 ypg) must go to the next level. The Bills spent their first two draft picks to bolster the defensive line and that should complement standout DT Ed Oliver (3 sacks). If the line stands up, look for linebackers Matt Milano and Tremaine Edmunds to fly all over the field making plays.
The strength of the Buffalo defense remains the secondary group. Tre’Davious White has blossomed into a legitimate shutdown cornerback and has intercepted nine passes over the last two seasons.
