The Buffalo Bills enter 2018 as underdogs even after making the postseason in 2017. Here are four realistic expectations for the team this season.

We have seen the preseason predictions about the Buffalo Bills. The 4-12 and 5-11 predictions from national analysts who don’t have much faith in a Bills team fresh off a postseason appearance.

Just like last year, the Bills are out to surprise in 2018.

Today the Bills are set to take on the Cincinnati Bengals in the third preseason game. A game in which Josh Allen is starting and will be looking to win the job for Week 1.

There is a lot of hype in general and that extends beyond just the quarterback position. I personally blame Buffalo Bills: Embedded for the early excitement.

To slow down the hype a bit I wanted to take a look at some realistic expectations for the 2018 season. I purposely didn’t include anything about any of the three quarterbacks because right now such a prediction may be deemed more bold than realistic. I’m sure such predictions will be a bit easier to make after today’s game. Or let’s hope.

So before today’s big game let’s look at some realistic expectations for the team in 2018.
