5.) Denver Broncos at Buffalo Bills

You read that correctly. The Broncos will be one of the biggest challenges for the Bills this season. Let’s face it, whether or not you believe that the horrendous season by the Broncos was Russell Wilson’s fault or not, it more than likely won’t happen again. Why is that? It comes down to two words: Sean Payton. 

The legendary coach has come back into coaching where he will have the ultimate responsibility to bring the Broncos back to relevancy. It is hard to believe that Denver will struggle with Payton at the lead. 

The Bills have beaten the Broncos five of the last six meetings, including in 2020 where the Bills won 48-19 to clinch the AFC East division for the first time in 25 years. 

The Broncos know the pressure that they have, especially in the division that they are in. Payton knows how to get the best out of his quarterbacks and with Wilson’s abilities, there should be no doubt that this game is electrifying. The Bills will host the Broncos in Week 10 this season.
