Early NFL Futures: Best Bets to Win the AFC

... Buffalo Bills +600

 

The Bills were everyone’s darling heading into the playoffs. But it was obvious Buffalo just wasn’t ready for the Super Bowl spotlight yet. They almost got tripped up by the Indianapolis Colts in the Wild Card Round, then needed a second-half collapse from the Baltimore Ravens in the Divisional Round, and gave up 31 straight points after getting out to a 9-0 lead in the AFC title game.

 

The Bills feel like the type of team that will use this playoff experience to its advantage and propel it into a Super Bowl appearance. Josh Allen took great strides in his third season and formed a dynamic duo with Stefon Diggs. The defense improved as the year went on. And Buffalo has one of the league’s best coaching staffs led by Sean McDermott, who will learn from his conservative decision-making in the AFC Championship.

 

Offensively, Buffalo must find more balance. The Bills could afford an upgrade at tailback from Devin Singletary and Zack Moss and need to bolster a front seven that allowed 4.6 rushing yards per attempt last season.

 

Buffalo is slightly over the salary cap ceiling, but they’ll have seven draft picks at their disposal. With a few upgrades and continued improvement from Allen, this team has legitimate Super Bowl aspirations. They’re my best bet to win the AFC. ...

ESPN's Dan Graziano predicts Bills will win Super Bowl LVI

... “The Bills didn’t even play [close games] they just crushed everyone,” Graziano said.

Furthering his point:

 

“I like to look at teams that get close, teams that are on the upswing, that get close, and have a bit of a tough playoff loss. Sometimes you see them come back the following year and they have that extra step… I think sometimes you see team build off of that. That experience helps, Buffalo is good enough to do that and I think they’ll be in a position to cash that in.”

Denver might be an enticing bet, on the off hand chance they pick up Watson.


If Watson gets traded, let's hope Houston is smart enough to get him out of the AFC.

2 major fixes the Bills must make this offseason to win the Super Bowl

... Buffalo lit up the scoreboard as a pass-first team. Allen was an MVP candidate and he had two All-Pro receivers in Diggs and Cole Beasley. They had an underrated offensive line, that did an admirable job protecting Allen.

 

To get to the next level, the Bills would have to be less predictable on offense. One of the things that worked in the Bills’ favor was that despite having a lackluster ground game, opposing defenses would regularly bite on their play-action calls. In the following season, teams will have a year’s worth of tape and reports on Buffalo and they should be able to adjust accordingly to the play-action, which is a huge chunk of the Buffalo offense. ...
