The Buffalo Bills showed some improvement in Week 2 but remain in the basement of ESPN’s power rankings heading into Week 3.

The Buffalo Bills enter Week 3 at the bottom of ESPN’s NFL power rankings. That shouldn’t be a surprise to anyone who has followed the national coverage of the Bills this year.

However, the Bills are better than the Arizona Cardinals. Just saying.

The Bills certainly looked like the worst team in football during Week 1 with Nathan Peterman under center. Then things got a bit better on Sunday with Josh Allen taking over. The two losses don’t directly fall on the quarterbacks. However, it is tough to be motivated when the man under center is not capable of moving the ball downfield.

Things don’t get much easier for the Bills this Sunday as the team is in Minnesota to take on the Vikings. That is followed by a road game against the Green Bay Packers. Who made this schedule?

There isn’t necessarily a “bad” team on the schedule but it is a bit early to start playing the schedule game. All the Bills can do is get to work and focus on each individual game.

The good news is that Josh Allen got the offense going against the San Diego Chargers. The defense also got a boost with Sean McDermott calling the plays. Maybe that will be cause for an upset watch this Sunday in Minnesota.

The oddsmakers surely don’t think there is a chance. Time to prove them wrong.

Next. Bills: Three up and three down after Week 2. dark

Fans can complain about being low in the power rankings but nothing will change until the Bills pick up that elusive first win. Based on the schedule, there will be no easy path to victory anytime soon.
