1.) The offensive line

Games are won in the trenches and the Bills offensive line will be tasked with tough opponents this season. They will have to take on defenses’ like the Jets twice a year, the Patriots (who are always competitive with Bill Belichick), the Eagles defensive line, the Cowboys who have arguably the best pass rusher in Micah Parsons, and the Bengals who controlled the line of scrimmage against the Bills’ offensive line. 

If you take the 2021-2022 Bengals out, you can have a great quarterback with great weapons on the outside, but if the offensive line is not able to hold up their end to protect the quarterback then the offense usually does not go far.

The unit that is the biggest x-factor for how far the Bills can go this season is the offensive line led by Mitch Morse. They revamped upfront in the offseason and now it is time to see what they can do with the pressure officially turned up.
