At roughly the halfway point of the 2023 season, the Buffalo Bills are 5-3 and while there has been plenty of pessimism around the Bills they are only one game back in the AFC East. There have been times this season they have looked great, like their win over the Miami Dolphins.
Unfortunately, there have also been games where this team struggles and this is where the concerns start to come from. When looking ahead to the final months of the 2023 season, these are some of the top storylines and questions worth watching.
5 storylines for the Buffalo Bills in the second half of 2023 season
How do the Buffalo Bills manage the toughest stretch of their schedule?
When the 2023 schedule was released, it was pretty clear that the second half of the season was going to be tough and test the Buffalo Bills. That certainly still appears to be the case as the Bills have road game against the Bengals on Sunday Night.
After that game, the Bills have back-to-back home games against the Denver Broncos and New York Jets. They then go on the road for games against the Philadelphia Eagles and Kansas City Chiefs with their bye in the middle.
After that, the final four teams they play include the Dallas Cowboys, Los Angeles Chargers, New England Patriots, and Miami Dolphins. The easiest game during this stretch would probably be the game against the Patriots, but New England beat the Bills in Week 7.
There is no question that the Bills are going to be tested down the stretch this season.
