These are the grades for the Buffalo Bills performance in the 2021 preseason.

The Buffalo Bills wrapped up the 2021 preseason with a perfect 3-0 record. They started the preseason on the road against the Detroit Lions. It took a late scoring drive led by quarterback Jake Fromm to secure a 16-15 win.

In the second week of the preseason, the Bills were once again on the road as they headed to Chicago to face the Bears. This game was much different than the first as the Bills ran away from the Bears in the first half and cruised to a 41-15 win.

The final preseason game was played at home at Highmark Stadium and was the only game that saw a majority of their starters, including Josh Allen, see any playing time this preseason. It was the defense’s ‘bend but don’t break’ mentality that helped them secure the 19-0 victory over the Green Bay Packers.

While the wins were nice, the focus in the preseason is getting backups and rookies valuable playing time. It is also important to put the team in key situations that come up during the course of the year. I try to keep that in mind as I hand out grades for the Buffalo Bills offense, defense, special teams, and coaching this preseason.
