Schedule Analysis

I know it’s way too early and all, but it’s been awhile since a schedule came out that I have liked as much as this one. I’m seeing many wins, make it so McBeane.

if they can do no worse than 3-2 before the bye,  weeks 7,8 and 9 could be where this team really starts to click and give us a head of steam going through the back stretch.

i'm expecting at least 10-6.

Browns tanked, got a bunch of good players and the top QB in the draft, had a ton of cap space and got some great veterans, and now they are a top team in the AFC.

 

On the other hand, during that same time period the Bills decided it was smart to try and win with a bad roster full of old dudes, got some mediocre players in the draft, got some mediocre veterans, and a mediocre/bad QB (but hey he can run).

 

Browns will go 10-6 and be AFC North contenders and a playoff team and the Bills will be watching the playoffs on TV like always

Lol top QB

Really excited about this schedule.  Already have plans booked for W4 against the Pats*** and will soon have plans locked up for Dec. 8 vs. the Ravens.  Possibility of trip to Nashville in W5.  Love the Thanksgiving game.

 

The NFL schedule makers really did the Bills a favor (for once) with a front-loaded home schedule.  They will have every opportunity to put a good record out there and gain confidence as the season progresses.

 

Now, on to the draft!

If they get off to that hot start we will be flexed. Browns likely.

 

Browns and Bills flexed, I hope to live in that kind of fantasy land

3 home games in a row is very nice

Home, away, 1pm game, night game, Thanksgiving. They all are just games... Stick to the workouts, preparation for the week and take it one game at a time... As of now the main focus is the Jets... All focus is on beating them and then we'll move on to the Giants... That's my motto...

Your username sucks. I'd ask if you meant another NFL QB in history named Josh who was an established Franchise QB, but I just can't think of one.

 

Yeah, your username sucks, and we're better than the Browns. 

 

Go back to their message board.

 

But they aren't in NYC... they aren't even in NYS... they're in NJ...

 

For real though...

I’m genuinely bummed Buffalo got Dallas on Thanksgiving.

 

that was going to be my favorite upset.  Buffalo rolling into Dallas on some random Sunday.  Lowly Buffalo being some out of conference opponent on a random Sunday.

 

Dallas is a a team that seems to play to either level of competition or to the moment.

 

they were poised to come out flat (like Vikings) against Buffalo on a Rando SUnday.

 

now that’s its on Thanksgiving...as of today no way I like Buffalo for that one.

I'm not bummed, 

but it's like the schedule makers were looking for an easy win for Dallas on a day that they generally don't lose on.

 

Think of it this way, should Buffalo beat Dallas that should wake up the world that the Bills are no longer AFC doormats.

So much will depend on a few things. Who the Bills draft and if they will have an impact. Also, if Daboll can build a good run game attack with the RB's as this will help the Bills defense out so much if the offense can sustain drives and score. If Daboll can fix the passing game to go from 30th to say perhaps 15th which would be a huge improvement. 

 

The Bills secondary was already upgraded with the addition of EJ Gains so the areas of need are run stopping and pass rush. The Jests with Bell, the Ginats with Barkley. the Titsns with Henry. The Bills will really need to improve in run stopping or it could be a long season.

Only one game the Bills should be focused on (And I know they will) and that's week one!

Yea.

 

Run defense got exposed big time in a few games at the end of the year.

 

Edmunds and Star need to improve in that department.

Yeah if only the Chiefs got a new stadium, they too could get some national attention.

 

It's completely renovated and cost over half a billion dollars

Looking at the schedule I'm seeing 10 or even 11 wins.

 

The way you get prime-time games is to make the playoffs on a regular basis.  Until we do that there's no point in getting upset or being surprised by our lack of Monday & Sunday night games. 

 

I'm not a big fan of the Turkey Day game at Dallas.  It's not that the Cowboys worry me, they don't play all that well on Thanksgiving. Rather it's the late start of the game that gives my stomach the heebie-Jeebies.  I'll have to break out the Tums as we'll slam the big feast before the game and then suffer through a nerve wracking game.  Why "nerve wracking"?  I expect this to be a very important game from a playoff standpoint.

 

Question to this board - is it possible (or advisable) to drink lots of beer AFTER a huge Thanksgiving dinner while watching the Bills? 

 

Also is any one going to watch the game WHILE eating dinner.  And with the NFL's short halftime breaks would it be possible to finish the feast up during halftime?

The Thanksgiving game might not be as bad as everyone assumes.  Looking at the Dallas schedule, they have NE the week before and Chicago the week after.  I could see them overlooking us and being able to pull off an upset

I don't see why - they're only 2-3 in their last 5 on Thanksgiving, all @Dal at 430.

They're talent level is equal at worse. Very winnable gm. Zeke should be hurt by then , and I think we walk in there 7-4 .

Josh Allen n the Bills are going to be the talk of Turkey Day . Getting a big W vs the overrated Cowgirls.

Millions of eyeballs will be on that gm , could see the bandwagon fill up with ppl just learning how good Buf is

Wk 1 at NYJ - (Great early test, Allen and Darnold seem to be pretty good friends and both competitive) Jets will have good running game, but so should we. 50/50

Wk 2 at NYG - (I just don't see how they've improved this offseason)  I see a 75/25 chance for a Win

Wk 3 Cincy home opener - (Fired up fans, weakened defense, coaching overhaul) 80/20 for the Win

Wk 4 NE - (Pats are Pats, but this year smells different, but until I see evidence)  40/60 probably a loss

Wk 5 at TEN - (Who's going to be the QB, Henry with no star receivers) 60/40 for the Win

Wk 6 BYE - (10th week in from start of preseason, good place for a bye)

Wk 7 Miami - (Miami at the start of the season is nothing on paper, we should know who they are by this point) 75/25 for Win

Wk 8 Philly - (With no quality backup anymore, will Wentz be healthy?) 60/40 for the Win

Wk 9 WSH - (Who's the QB?  Nothing scars me about this team on either side of the ball) 80/20 for the Win

Wk 10 at CLE - (Mayfield's hold on the team of divas will be very clear at this point, if they're winning they will be tough, if not?)  50/50

Wk 11 at MIA - (I think they'll be improved, but I also think the Bills at this point have some momentum, possible trap game) 60/40 for the Win

Wk 12 DEN - (Nothing really to say about Denver haven't been paying attention to their offseason)  @home 70/30 for the Win

Wk 13 at DAL Thanksgiving Day - (Team is built very similar to the Bills on TG Day toss up) 50/50

Wk 14 BAL - (Teams and the league will have Jackson figured out by now, Harbaugh realizes they made a big mistake letting Flacco go) 70/30 for the Win

Wk 15 at PIT - (Ju Ju, Rothlisberger, depends on their record but not scared, what they do well on offense, we counter well with defense) 50/50

Wk 16 at NE possible Saturday game - (who knows, but I fully expect either the Jets or the Bills to be in the hunt) 50/50

Wk 17 NYJ - (Again, Jets have a brutal start to their season, where will they be at this point, I'm guessing in the hunt) 60/40 we're at home looking to go to the dance.

 

I see 10 wins and 1 sure loss, and  5 toss ups.  Even if I take into account that I'm not being as conservative as I should be, I'm not far off.  Even if we lose some of those projected wins, we can make up for it with wins in some of the toss ups.  I still see no reason we can't be a 10 win team at a minimum.  All about momentum, and if we can get some early, which I fully expect, then we as fans are going to enjoy this season.  Regardless, the Bills are not the laughing stock of the league this year.  No team is marking us on their calendar as an automatic W.

I'm strongly confident wherever I spend thanksgiving, will have dinner early. Its not like my family or In-laws will be oblivious to the Bills being on TV, and I won't be the only one who wants to watch it. Also, I usually drink lots of beer after a huge thanksgiving dinner, not sure why the bills being on TV will make a difference!

Pretty decent this year. Finally glad for a block of early-ish home games and not 3 home games in December (again). SOS is not predictive year-to-year so not going to speculate on wins/losses, I just hope they get off to a good start because they have to open away/away.

The Browns will be decent. NFL loves stories like two young future faces of the league going head to head...
