With the final roster cuts made, the talking is (mostly) over for the Buffalo Bills and the rest of the NFL. Now it’s time for everyone to show what they can do on the field.

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 the 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 second of a four-part series, we look at games five-to-eight of the new season, and give our thoughts on what Buffalo’s record will be.

Previous: . Tennessee Titans. 5. team. 35. The Titans officially bottomed out last season, with their worst record since moving to Tennessee. On the positive side, it put them in position to draft Marcus Mariota. However, while the Heisman Trophy winner is eventually expected to lead the turnaround for the Titans, he’s still a rookie. In many respects, it will be like throwing a lamb to the slaughter, when Mariota faces the Bills defense.<p>It really doesn’t matter that the game will be played in Tennessee. The home team won just once there during 2014. Buffalo has to take advantage of games like this and they will, in what should be a pretty straightforward victory.</p>. (Win: 3-2)

56. Sometimes I think the Bengals fans and media forget how bad things used to be in Cincinnati. Everyone is so busy slating <strong><a href=. (Win: 4-2). Previous: . Cincinnati Bengals. 6. team

team. 52. Playing Jacksonville always brings back memories of <strong><a href=. (Win: 5-2). Previous: . Jacksonville Jaguars. 7

Revenge will be on the Bills minds for this game (assuming my prediction for the previous encounter is correct). In many respects, Buffalo will be in great shape for the rematch with the Dolphins, after enjoying a bye week to recover from the trip to London.<p>As with the contest in Miami, it should be another closely-fought game, with homefield proving to be an important factor. With us now being in November, this advantage should only be further enhanced by the weather factor, with <strong><a href=. (Win: 6-2). Previous: . Miami Dolphins. 8. team. 59

So there you have it – after eight games, I expect the Bills record to be 6-2. Check back throughout the rest of this week, for our predictions for the remainder of Buffalo’s schedule.
