We are slowly but surely approaching the start of the NFL season and it is truly one of the greatest times of the year. The Buffalo Bills find themselves back in the championship window, but it is a crowded window with other teams. After a disastrous season-ending loss to the Cincinnati Bengals, the Bills are looking to rebound and make another run at the big stage with Josh Allen under center. 

Heading into the 2023 season, the Bills will have one of the toughest schedules for a team this season. Let’s look at some of the logistics about their opponents for this season: 

- Nine of their opponents were playoff teams last year (Miami Dolphins, Kansas City Chiefs, Los Angeles Chargers, Jacksonville Jaguars, Cincinnati Bengals, Dallas Cowboys, Philadelphia Eagles, New York Giants and Tampa Bay Buccaneers)

- They will play against the Eagles and Chiefs, both teams who were in the super bowl. 

- Five of their opponents won their respective division in 2022 (Eagles, Chiefs, Bengals, Buccaneers and Jaguars).

- Five of their opponents had 10-plus wins last season (Bengals, Chiefs, Chargers, Eagles and Cowboys). 

The Bills have had a championship window since 2020 when they made it to the AFC championship game, but have not been back since. From there on, it’s been heartbreak after heartbreak. With other conference teams on the rise, the Bills will have more of an uphill battle than they already have. 

Here are the five toughest games for the Bills this season.
