The Buffalo Bills on paper look to have one of their best rosters in franchise history but the AFC has improved significantly this offseason with notable players like Russell Wilson, Davante Adams, Khalil Mack, and Chandler Jones changing conferences that make AFC predictions very tough this year.

Teams like the Los Angeles Chargers and Denver Broncos are now expected to compete with the Kansas City Chiefs, Cincinnati Bengals, and Buffalo Bills for the chance to represent the conference in the Super Bowl.

When looking at the conference, these are AFC predictions for how each division might finish and which teams will make the playoffs for a chance to reach the Super Bowl.

AFC Predictions: AFC South

1st: Indianapolis Colts

2nd: Tennessee Titans

3rd: Houston Texans

4th: Jacksonville Jaguars

The AFC South has the team that earned the top seed in the playoffs last year in the Tennessee Titans, who would win the division for the second straight year. While the team still has Derrick Henry, they made big changes at wide receiver after releasing Julio Jones and trading A.J. Brown and replacing them with Robert Woods and first round pick Treylon Burk.

However, this year the team to beat in the division looks to be the Indianapolis Colts who traded Carson Wentz, who was the starting quarterback last year, to Washington and brought in veteran Matt Ryan after agreeing to a deal with the Atlanta Falcons.

In addition to Ryan, the Colts solidified their secondary by adding Stephon Gilmore and have one of the best defenses in the conference alongside the best running back in the league in Jonathan Taylor.

The Colts should have been a playoff team last year but missed it due to an inexcusable loss in the final week of the regular season to the Jacksonville Jaguars. The team is better this year and with Jonathan Taylor, they are the team to beat.

Meanwhile, the Houston Texans and Jacksonville Jaguars will be fighting to avoid being last in the division. While both teams should be better this year, they aren’t ready to compete with the Colts and Titans.
