Buffalo Bills 2012 Outlook and Odds

August 21, 2012

The AFC East will have another tough battle this season as the New England Patriots, New York Jets and the Buffalo Bills will be fighting it out for the division title. The Bills started out last season on fire and were 5-2 after seven games, including a three-point winner over the Patriots. However, things changed quickly and the Bills lost seven straight and finished a dismal 6-10 on the season. Through the draft, the team has been able to pick up solid players.

Offensively the team was much improved last season as they averaged 352 yards and 23 plus points per game. Ryan Fitzpatrick had his best season as a pro as the Harvard grad passed for 3,832 yards and had a 62% completion rate. He had 24 TD passes but nearly an identical amount, 23, of interceptions.  

Fred Jackson is highly unrated but ran for over 900 yards last season and had over 440 yards receiving. At receiver, the best of the bunch is Steve Johnson who caught 76 last season. David Nelson had 61 catches and at tight end, Scott Chandler had 38.

Defensively the team was one of the league’s worst in 2011. They gave up almost 28 points each game and over 370 total yards each time out. The offense had to hope they had the ball at the end of the game to score and win knowing their defense would not hold its opponent in check. They did sign Mario Williams to a free agent contract and Mark Anderson was picked up from division rival New England. Injuries hurt them last season as three of their linebackers were put on injured reserve.

This season they should improve but do not look for anything more than mediocrity and an 8-8 record. The odds makers have the Bills as +4000 long shots to win the Super Bowl, +2000 long shots for the AFC Championship and -180 to be OVER the 7.5 wins.
