We are eight weeks into the season, and many now believe the Bills are a member of one of the weakest divisions in the league. Once again out in front is the New England Patriots, who have seemed to have gotten back on track after a few tough early losses. The other three members of the division have played rather lackluster so far.
The New York Jets and Miami Dolphins matched up this weekend, and the Jets flaws were certainly exposed. The Dolphins won all the special teams battles and managed to beat the Jets with backup QB Matt Moore. The Dolphins are now 4-3, but their three other victories have come against Oakland, Cincinnati, and St. Louis. It may be a case of the Jets just being very bad, not the Dolphins being any good. That being said Ryan Tannehill has had a decent rookie season, throwing for 1472 yards and four touchdowns.
The Jets are in a state of disarray, now sitting with a 3-5 record at the bottom of the division. Mark Sanchez appears to still be in control of the starting quarterback position, but the always talked about Tim Tebow is starting to sound like more of an option. The Jets opened their season by embarrassing the Bills however. Are they still better than Buffalo?
It is clear that New England is at the front of the pack, but the bottom three teams are much more up in the air. More questions should be answered in the coming weeks. Two of the Bills next three games are against divisional opponents, the Patriots and the Dolphins. Where do you think the Bills rank in the division? Comment below!
