Optimism is at its highest in Western New York for 10 years, and rightly so. The Bills have arguably their best roster since they last made the playoffs in 1999.

Of course, a lot of what they do will depend on what type of performance they get from behind center. Tyrod Taylor currently has the keys to the offence, but it remains to be seen how than pans out.

With the Bills home opener less than a week away, we thought we’d have some fun predicting their results for the 2015 campaign. In the first of a four-part series, we look at the opening quarter of the new season, and give our thoughts on what Buffalo’s record will be.

1. team. 46. Week one, especially when it’s at home, is one of the most exciting times of the year for Bills fans. Also, keep in mind that a team which wins its first game of the regular season, is historically twice as likely to make the playoffs compared to if they lose.<p>However, as much as the people of Buffalo won’t want to hear this, I just can’t see the Bills winning against the Colts. Don’t get me wrong, it should be a close game, but <strong><a href=. (Loss: 0-1). Previous: . Indianapolis Colts

47. Going into a game against the Super Bowl champion with an 0-1 record, is obviously not a great situation to be in. Now, throw in the Bills 2-13 record against the New England Patriots at home during the last 15 seasons, and there’s even more cause for concern. At least Dareus will be back, with the Bills needing all the help they can get, now that <strong><a href=. (Win: 1-1). Previous: . New England Patriots. 2. team

59. Until further notice, the Patriots remain favorites to win the AFC East. As such, the games between the Bills and Dolphins take on extra importance. The two results will have a massive impact on who finishes second in the division, thus improving their chances at the postseason.<p>The addition of <strong><a href=. (Loss: 1-2). Previous: . Miami Dolphins. 3. team

4. team. 31. The Giants have been somewhat of a conundrum, wrapped in an enigma and shrouded by mystery during the <strong><a href=. (Win: 2-2). Previous: . New York Giants

So there you have it – after four games, I expect the Bills record to be 2-2. Check back throughout the week, for our predictions for the rest of Buffalo’s schedule.
