For the second time in three years, the Buffalo Bills saw their season end in the playoffs. These are the top takeaways for the organization looking back on the 2019 season.

While the Buffalo Bills were not able to secure their first playoff win since 1995, there was plenty of positives that can be taken from this past season. This team made the playoffs for the second time in three years under head coach Sean McDermott.

However, this time around it felt like this was a team that belonged in the playoffs. In their first playoff run, they walked off the field in Week 17 needing help to sneak in. This time around, the Bills had secured a playoff berth after a win over the Pittsburgh Steelers and were playing for a bye in the first round through Week 16.

The Bills were able to play with the top teams of the AFC due in large part to their defense. They finished the year in the Top 5 in most categories and with a majority of starters returning, this is something that should carry over into this decade.

While there was plenty of positives, there is still plenty of room for improvement. We take a look at the good and the bad from this past season for the Buffalo Bills.
