AFC East: The Bills are the favorites to win the AFC East. Last season, the Bills won the division easily, winning all six of their divisional games. Regardless, it looks like the only competition the Bills will have are the Dolphins. The Dolphins were the only team in the division that could be a threat. Last season, the Dolphins finished with a 10-6 record and had a division record of 3-3. While it is not a good division record, the Dolphins are still a decent team that should not be underestimated. Regardless, the Bills will easily cruise to another divisional title.
Tough Matchups: Buffalo begins their season with a tough matchup against the Steelers. The Steelers are one of the three teams in the AFC that provides a challenge to the Bills. Week 5 is another exciting game that is a must-watch for fans. The Bills will face Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs. It will be a rematch of last year’s AFC Championship game between the two teams. That game was closely fought, but Kansas City came out victorious 28-24. This time, Buffalo will be looking for revenge, and it will be one that fans will not want to miss. Week 14 features a game against the reigning Super Bowl Champions. Buffalo and the crew will have to play a strong game to overcome Tom Brady and the Bucs. Another tough game will be in Week 12 against the Saints.
Overall: The Bills schedule does not have very tough games besides the aforementioned ones. Buffalo should easily cruise to another division title and the playoffs.
Prediction: First place in the AFC East (12-5)
