The Buffalo Bills show up near the bottom of ESPN’s initial power rankings for the 2019 season following the conclusion of the Super Bowl.

We all got a nice little break from talking about the Buffalo Bills and power rankings.

Now that the Super Bowl is over, it is time for all the “way too early” power rankings to be published.

ESPN.com wasted no time and had a list ready to go for when the big game ended. As expected, the Bills show up rather low.

The article has the Bills all the way down at No. 29 overall, ahead of three teams who are all picking in the top four of the 2019 NFL Draft.

Bills fans have to be used to this by now as the team never gets much respect in the offseason. That was obviously going to be the case after a 6-10 season, even though there is plenty to be optimistic about.

The good news is that low expectations never hurt anyone. The Bills can surprise teams in 2019 and hopefully at least be in contention for the postseason. The team could also move up in these rankings next month if some top free agents are added.

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

The Bills are picking No. 9 overall and could even slide back into the first round with the amount of draft capital at Brandon Beane’s disposal.

Bills fans will not like what FanDuel has to say about the Bills winning it all next year.

But hey, there is plenty of money to be won.
