Bills still have better offensive weapons
Both the Buffalo Bills and New England Patriots have excellent defenses, likely both in the Top 5 in the league. The deciding factor in their two matchups, which also can decide the division, is on the offensive side of the ball.
While Cam Newton at one time did get the best out of the offensive weapons around him, like in 2015, it is hard to imagine Newton can reach that level to make that kind of impact. When comparing the two supporting casts, the Buffalo Bills win hands down with the depth they have.
There is no question that the race for the AFC East got much closer as the New England Patriots addressed their one big glaring question with the addition of Cam Newton. However, the Buffalo Bills are still in good position to win their first AFC East title since 1995 and should still be considered the favorite at this point.
