While everyone is talking about the Jets and the Giants and the bravado that comes along with them; people seem to be forgetting about that team up in Orchard Park, NY. While the Buffalo Bills are coming off a losing season, don't let that fool you.
Although the Bills learned of a devastating blow recently when Kiko Alonso, their star on defense went down, the Bills still have a stout front seven on defense. This stout front seven is led by Marcel Dareus at defensive end who is a force at the line of scrimmage. The secondary is led by veteran safety Jim Leonard who brings stability to the back end of the defense. On offense, the explosive capability is off the charts. C.J. Spiller and Sammy Watkins are both home run hitting weapons alongside Robert Woods who is a budding slot receiver in the league. Although E.J. Manuel is feeling the pressure to live up to the hype, he seems to be un-phased by the challenge that he faces.
This Buffalo Bills team is young, explosive, and extremely dangerous. Teams who are looking past them on the schedule may want to think twice before prematurely penciling in a victory against this young Bills team.
While the Bills have a possible problem at quarterback, the Jets and the Giants have multiple problems. The Giants do not know what they are going to get from recently acquired Rashad Jennings at running back and are not sure on what their offensive line will be like this year. As for the Jets, like always, they have a quarterback controversy. This time the controversy is between recent draft pick Geno Smith and veteran quarterback Michael Vick. The Jets also have the potential to have one of the worst secondaries in the league if they don't get their act together.
Rex Ryan doesn't want to worry about the Patriots, but he may need to pay a little attention to what is going on in Buffalo. And oh yeah, he may want to pay attention to the Patriots as well being that they have won 11 of the last 13 AFC East titles to be had. New York, don't sleep on the Buffalo Bills.
