2.) Buffalo Bills

Sure, the Bills haven’t been able to get over the Super Bowl hump and reach the big game. They have either fallen to the Kansas City Chiefs or been blown out by the Cincinnati Bengals. Out of the whole AFC East, the Bills lost the most by a mile. They have almost a brand new starting secondary and a new receiving core on the offense. However, they still have Josh Allen and as long as he is playing at a high level, the Bills will always have pressure to succeed and not waste Allen’s prime years.

Heading into 2024, the Bills still have high expectations but it feels different than the past four seasons. On paper as of right now, they don’t have a dynamic offense with any true star players outside of Allen. They have solid players like James Cook, Dalton Kincaid, and Khalil Shakir showed promise at the end of last season. Other than that, the Bills are a mystery on offense. 

Buffalo has won the division the last four seasons which includes stealing the division last season from the Dolphins in Miami after being down three games at one point. The Bills are still expected to succeed, but there should be no surprise if don’t finish first for the fifth consecutive season.
