Buffalo Bills will win four of five against the NFC

The Buffalo Bills NFC opponents this year are the previously mentioned Washington, Carolina and Atlanta along with road games to Tampa Bay to face the defending Super Bowl champions and a Thanksgiving night showdown with the New Orleans Saints.

While Washington did win the NFC East last year, there is no question it was a down year and they snuck into the playoffs with a 7-9 record. Meanwhile, the Saints lost Drew Brees and there are questions about who will replace him and Carolina and Atlanta finished well below .500 at 5-11 and 4-12 respectively.

The biggest challenge without a doubt is going to be facing the Bucs on the road. The Tampa Bay Bucs just beat the Kansas City Chiefs in the Super Bowl and were able to bring back every starter from that team. This is likely the one game that the Bills will lose this year against the NFC but should find plenty of success against the other four teams.
