If the Buffalo Bills offense starts to come together this Bills team could be good. Good as in playoffs good.
Right now the Buffalo Bills sit at a 2 and 2 record. They have played 2 good teams and 2 mediocre teams. They have beat one of the good teams (Baltimore) and lost a close one to the other (New England)..
The Bills defense, without 3 of their better players, are rounding into one of the better defensive units in the league. If this team can hold on through the next 2 or 3 games and get back Byrd, McKelvin and Gilmore, while hopefully Fred Jackson and CJ Spiller stay healthy, they could start to challenge some of the better teams in the league.
It will take time for a rookie quarterback to settle into his position. If EJ Manual can start to develop a rhythm with Stevie Johnson and continue to build on his rapport with Robert Woods then this offense could start to score some points.
The defense has carried this team to it’s current record. If the offense starts to catch up to the defense then this team could really start to turn some heads around the league. Heads were already turning when the Bills effectively shut down the defending Super Bowl champion Baltimore Ravens.
The Bills have a tough schedule for most of the rest of this season. They are playing some of the better teams in the league. If they can keep beating a few of the better teams while winning the games they should, they will have a shot at the post season.
Realistically though, the Bills will probably have to go at least 3 – 1 in their remaining division games for this to take place. They also need to win the games like this weeks match-up with Cleavland. .
There are a lot of ifs in this article, but if a few of them can come together we may see this rebuild start off a lot quicker than many people thought.
What do you guys think?
What needs to happen for this team to make the playoffs this year?
