Are the Buffalo Bills For Real?

Posted on: October 19, 2011 3:26 pm

The Buffalo Bills started off this season strong with a 3-0 start and this week with a Bye they sit at 4-2 which is good enough for  second place in the AFC east behind the 5-1 New England Patriots and just ahead of the 3-3 New York Jets (who they have yet to play). The Bills are winning off the arm of Patrick Fitzgerald and an explosive running game with Fred Jackson who is only 9 years behind the league leading rusher. Thought Buffalo appear to be a true contender in the AFC east I would have to say they are not for real. I do believe that they will cause a lot of problem for teams down the strength however I believe they will eventually finish at number 3 in this division behind the Patriots and Jets. Why? Defense. With 2 game remaining against the Jets, at Dallas, Tennessee, at San Diego, Tebow and the Broncos come to town Christmas Eve and finishing the season at Foxboro there is no way they finish any higher than 9-7… it sorry Bills fans maybe next year.

Are the Buffalo Bills For Real?

I mostly have to agree with you on this. I feel they can go 10-6 if they stay healthy. Fitzpatrick on the other hand is getting figured out by other teams. They got to see some film on him and have been disrupting him alot. If it wasnt for great running support, i think they would be in alittle more trouble.So to say if they are for real or not I have to say yes for right now. They are winning when most thought they would be under acheivers. Not to mention Fred Jackson is putting up big numbers when he was supposed to be replaced by C.J. Spiller. Cant forget they did beat New England too.
