One reason the Buffalo Bills will win Week 1

This is mentioned a bit in the previous slide but familiarity and bringing back most of their starters is going to be important in a shortened offseason. The fact that the Bills have 88% of their snaps returning from last year should help hit the ground running. In addition a majority of the players they brought in have a history with Sean McDermott so even the new players shouldn’t face a steep learning curve.

One reason the Buffalo Bills will win Week 7

This game will likely be a closer matchup as the Bills no longer have that continuity advantage and this game will be played on the road. However, the Buffalo Bills should still like their chances due to their defense.

Both teams sport under-performing offenses from a season ago but both added talent like the Bills addition of Stefon Diggs and the Jets on the offensive line and wide receivers Breshad Perriman and Denzil Mims. The difference is on the other side of the ball as the Jets have a number of question marks on their defense, especially if they trade Jamal Adams.

Next. Why the Bills should still be the favorites in the AFC East. dark

This is a game that Josh Allen and company should be able to move the ball regularly and if they capitalize with touchdowns, and not field goals, it should result in a season sweep of the New York Jets.
