2014 NFL Power Rankings


Power RankingsWith the season in full off-season mode, the NFL has come out with their end of the year power rankings with a look at next year and where each team stands at this point.

Leading the charge at number 1 are the Super Bowl Champion Seattle Seahawks.  Next in line is not who the Seahawks defeated in the Super Bowl but who they beat the Conference Championship game, the San Fransisco 49ers.  The Broncos come in at number 3.

As for the AFC East and the Buffalo Bills, they are bringing up the rear for the AFC East teams at number 23.

Elliot Harrison had this to say about the Bills ranking

“Buffalo should be in an excellent salary-cap situation, meaning it can fill several small holes at linebacker, on the offensive line and in the secondary, and figure out what to do with Jairus Byrd. Coach Doug Marrone has so much young talent; it will be up to his staff to develop it. Drafting another ‘backer would be pleasant, too”.

He is correct, in that, there are some small holes that need to be filled by the Bills.  I would say that the Bills are realistically 2-3 players away from making the playoffs.  Whether it is this year or in a couple of years, they are close.

Check out Elliot’s rest of the league power rankings.

    Although it pains me to see the Bills so low in the Power Rankings again this year (after year, after year, after year), There are just too many questions to rank them any higher. Our new DC Schwartz, Jairus Byrd, EJ Manuel, FA pickups, the draft. This team could stay in the cellar or could leap into the mix for the AFC title depending on these variables. The emergence of the defense last season gives us some hope, but the non-emergence of EJ puts knots in our stomachs — So, it’s another wait and see off-season.
