Buffalo Bills: AFC East Training Camp Power Rankings

It’s been an interesting offseason for the Buffalo Bills and the rest of the AFC East. With all the moves that have taken place, you could make an argument that this is now one of the strongest divisions in all of football.

In respect of the Bills, if they are going to finally break the “Flutie Curse” and return to the playoffs, the most straightforward way to do this is to win the AFC East. Of course, this is easier said than done, when you consider a certain Super Bowl champion roughly 450 miles to the East.

In any event, it’s still a good idea to keep an eye on the New England Patriots, as well as the Miami Dolphins and New York Jets. While the Bills will undoubtedly have to play well to qualify for the postseason, any assistance, a.k.a. self sabotage from their divisional rivals can’t hurt.

As such, we now present our training camp power rankings for the AFC East. (And before you accuse me, I happily confess that this is my own lazy version of a more standard 32-team NFL power rankings article.)

This represents the first in a series of AFC East power rankings, that will take place monthly throughout the rest of the year. Look out for the next update, which we’ll publish on the eve of the regular season.
