Bleacher Report: Buffalo Bills remain an afterthought in the AFC according to these rankings

Current Rank: 6
Last Week: 7

Bleacher Report has not favored Buffalo in their power rankings all season. While most media outlets view the Bills as the best team in the AFC, Bleacher Report ranks the Bills behind both the Cleveland Browns (4th) and the Los Angeles Chargers (5th).

"“Buffalo looked the part of the Super Bowl contender it was labeled by many before the season. The Bills have now outscored their opponents 78-21 the past two weeks ahead of a Week 4 tuneup against the Houston Texans, followed by a Week 5 showdown in Arrowhead against the Chiefs.” —Bleacher Report NFL Staff"

Although this media outlet does not hold the Bills in very high regard, what should not be ignored is the Bills having a better point differential than any team ranked above it in these rankings. Outscoring your opponent is the name of the game and the Bills deserve a lot more respect based on their performance through three weeks.

These power rankings are sometimes believed to be an exercise in futility. However, they typically provide an overview of where teams rank in pedigree among their sister organizations. Buffalo is largely believed to be the best team in the AFC through three weeks. And many of these power rankings reflect the same.
