1.) Buffalo Bills

The Bills are entering the 2023 season with the best quarterback in the division and a top five receiver in Stefon Diggs. Along with Allen and Diggs, the Bills also have the best depth in the division at each receiver. They may not be the biggest names in the league, but they provide value that will help the Bills succeed.

Wide receiver Gabriel Davis is going into a contract year with the Bills, meaning that he will need to step up if he wants to get paid which should be motivation. Running back James Cook is set to potentially take over the running back carries for the future, but is also part of a committee with Damien Harris and Latavius Murray. Having this kind of running back committee gives the Bills an advantage in the division because of the production that has been produced and what is expected to come for the future. 

In the 2023 draft, the Bills first two picks were tight end Dalton Kincaid and offensive guard O’Cyrus Torrence. The Bills could easily have these two rookies start right out of the gate. Kincaid has a high ceiling and could be the Bills-version of Travis Kelce. Torrence is an excellent pass blocker who did not give up a sack in his college career. 

Overall, the Bills and Dolphins have arguments as to why they could be the best offense in the division. The main separating factor between the two is quarterback. While Tua took a step forward in 2022, injuries cost him playing time and no one knows how he will be moving forward.

On the other hand, Josh Allen is a dynamic quarterback and does not have receivers like Tua. Allen is able to play off script and can sling it 70 yards down the field if needed. When these two teams meet this season, what happens on the field will determine who is the better offense.
