The Buffalo Bills are still a good football team

Starting the season 6-4 is less than ideal for a team with Super Bowl aspirations. Losing to a 1-win Jacksonville team was also not encouraging. But looking into the team’s rankings in the league, their quarterback play, and playoff position, the Bills are still a good team when compared to most in the league.

Buffalo has strengths that are undeniable and most times they have the best player on the field in quarterback Josh Allen. The Bills are capable of making a run at a Super Bowl and they have the pieces in place to do it.

Josh Allen is first in AFC quarterback Pro Bowl voting and Stefon Diggs ranks in the Top 10 in receiving yards. Buffalo’s defense is second in the entire league in points against and the offense ranks second in points scored.

Although it’s been a rocky ride up to this point, the Bills still have everything they need to get to a Super Bowl.

With all the parity in the AFC, Buffalo’s margin of error is slim. With two games against the division-leading Patriots on the horizon, it might be a good idea for the Bills to pick up a win in New Orleans if they want to re-earn the top spot in the AFC East. It starts tonight. Everything the Bills want to achieve is still within reach, but they have to capitalize on a beat-up Saints, which could be the defining win of the season.
