1. Buffalo Bills

Last year, the Buffalo Bills looked like one of the best teams in the NFL but came up short against the Kansas City Chiefs in the AFC Divisional Round. The team still has one of the best offenses in the NFL with Josh Allen under center and Stefon Diggs, Gabriel Davis, and Dawson Knox catching passes.

On defense is where general manager Brandon Beane put most of his focus and those efforts should pay major dividends, and hopefully get the Buffalo Bills over the hump. The big move was signing Von Miller, but they also signed DaQuan Jones, Tim Settle, Jordan Phillips, and Shaq Lawson for the defensive line.

The biggest question mark is at cornerback with Levi Wallace leaving in free agency for the Pittsburgh Steelers and Tre’Davious White recovering from a knee injury. However, with Micah Hyde and Jordan Poyer at safety, these two should help keep this group in the Top 5 along with a likely addition in free agency.

Last year, the Buffalo Bills had the third-best scoring offense and the best defense in points allowed. The team still has a majority of their team returning with key upgrades that make this the best team in the AFC, and possibly the NFL.
