Tough schedule does Buffalo Bills in
Having to navigate through unbelievably tough NFC West to the defending Super Bowl champions, the Bills can’t muster enough wins to reach the postseason. Two tough road games against the Tennessee Titans and Denver Broncos don’t make life easier on the schedule.
A primetime game against NFL heavyweight Pittsburgh Steelers combined with two up and coming teams of Los Angeles Chargers and Las Vegas Raiders and where is the soft spot in this year’s schedule? Now, lets add Bill Belichick’s New England Patriots, twice, to the schedule and that’s 12 games. Yup, told you that is a tough schedule.
Significant injuries to either Josh Allen, Tremaine Edmunds, Mitch Morse, or Tre’Davious White could seriously hinder the Bills ability to make the postseason. The backups at each of these positions are unlikely to be able to play up to the starters ability while continuing the push towards the playoffs.
The Buffalo Bills were one of the healthiest teams in 2019 with only six players landing on injured reserve. Fortunately for the Bills none of those players were starters and only one (Harrison Phillips) was added during the season. The Bills will be hoping for more of the same in 2020 or otherwise it could dash their postseason dreams.
