The Buffalo Bills are widely considered the worst team in the NFL after one game. That and more in today’s Morning Charge.

The Buffalo Bills didn’t have the best start to the 2018 season. But a blowout loss counts the same as a one-point defeat, so 0-1 is all fans will see in the standings.

What the loss did do was drop the team to the bottom of most national power rankings. That is where the Bills sit on ESPN.com, NFL.com and on the MMQB.

As fans know, power rankings after one game don’t mean too much. The problem is if the Bills are in the basement in October and November.

The team has to play better this Sunday at home against the Los Angeles Chargers. There is no conceivable way that they break down the loss in Baltimore and come out just as bad. It’s just not possible, right?

These power rankings were predictable after the way the Bills played and perhaps the home crowd can serve as inspiration. Or maybe the Ravens will end up being the best team in the NFL this season.

We take a look at this and more in today’s edition of The Morning Charge.

Some fun new for Bills fans as the former wide receiver will be at Sunday’s home opener. May as well put a jersey on him and see what he can do.

And finally, the big news of the day. Josh Allen is reportedly getting the start in Week 2 after Nathan Peterman once again failed to hold down the starting job. We will have more on this later today.
