The Buffalo Bills were known to have one of the better defenses in the NFL under Sean McDermott and Leslie Frazier. They leaned primarily on their secondary that included Tre’Davious White, Jordan Poyer, and Micah Hyde.
This past season, the defense was still good but not nearly at the level they were in prior years. They finished 19th in total yards allowed at 352.5 yards per game and 13th in passing yards allowed per game at 232.9 yards.
This defense once again will be tested with some of the offenses on their 2021 schedule. This is a ranking of the Top 5 offenses the Buffalo Bills will face this coming season.
5. Pittsburgh Steelers
The first offense on this list is actually the first team the Buffalo Bills will face this coming season in the Pittsburgh Steelers. Their offense took a step backward last year but a key addition to the run game should help this group rebound.
The Steelers used their first round pick on running back Najee Harris, who was considered by some to be the best running back in this draft class. The former Alabama Crimson Tide player is one of the more well-rounded running backs as he not only is an excellent rusher but also is a threat out of the backfield as a receiver.
Surprisingly, the biggest question with this offense is at quarterback and how much does Ben Rothlisberger have left in the tank. This past season, he saw his passing yards drop to 3,803 but he still threw 33 touchdowns. He also still has an excellent group of receivers around him that consists of Juju Smith-Schuster, Diontae Johnson, and Chase Claypool.
The Steelers shouldn’t be taken lightly and can put up points quickly if given the opportunity.
