It don’t know whether to question the intelligence of the ESPN “experts” or to just take it in stride and leave it be.

As far as e ESPN is concerned, the Bills are back to where they started three weeks ago. They are ranked 23rd as far as ESPN is concerned, which is where they started back after the beat the Chicago Bears.
ESPN did have the Bills as far up as 12th overall after starting the season 2-0, but dropped them to 19th after their loss to the Chargers and then down to 23rd with this current loss to the Texans. The NFL.com rankings had the Bills at their peak ranked as number 9 overall. So there was a lot of consensus as to the Bills playing well.
Does anyone at ESPN know what they are talking about or did they get caught up in the hype that a lot of people were stating to “wait for it” as Jim Rome stated on his radio show this past Monday. “We all knew it was coming” I believe were his words. Bills fans got causght up in it, but I don’t think for the wrong reasons. We are Bills fans we support our team and if you don’t have something for 14 years, you may get a little over-excited, it is expected, nothing wrong with that.
The Bills are ahead of the Minnesota Vikings, who are also 2-2 ranked at 24th and are the lowest ranked 2-2 team there is. Buffalo being the second lowest, but the New Orleans Saints are ranked 21st over all and are sitting with a 1-3 record right now. Are the Saints better than the Bills?
I don’t think the Bills are the 23rd overall team, I think that the should be in that 19th/20th range, purely based on their defense. They haven’t let in a ton of points and they get the turnovers and pressure the quarterbacks.
Did ESPN fall into this as well, or are they just about as intelligent as their ratings rank us to be?
Something to think about. Just saying.
