Bills have hardest remaining schedule per FPI ESPN

Recommended Posts

I thought this was interesting tidbit from the ESPN power rankings.  I would think one of the AFC North teams would be one.  Obviously only two weeks into the season, we don't know a lot of these teams yet.

some truth since we are in the AFC East (with Pats twice) and face the AFC West and NFC west. But I think SOS based on last season's rankings is a little misleading. SFO, Jets, Pats, even Broncos and Chargers may not be  as strong as last season.

Good points.  The schedule was way harder at the beginning of the year.  I hate injuries but it looks like we caught some major breaks.  Hopefully we stay healthy.

I've always based schedule on being a favorite. I think the Bills will be favored in 4 games the rest of the season. Miami, Jets, Chargers, and Broncos. Possibly home to NE.

If we beat the Rams, we'll be favored next week in Vegas.    We beat them and we'll be favored against the Titans.  But if we lose to the Rams, I think you'll end up being correct.

Really? They'll be favorites in just about every home game they play this season assuming Josh stays healthy, IMO.

Oh, different topic.  Second to last column.  REM SOS (remaining strength of schedule) is 1, being the hardest (as of right now).

Translation: The Pats already lost to the Seahawks and we only play the Jets and Dolphins each 1 more time.

The bills as of today 100% are favorites against the raiders steelers and home vs ne 

 

The early lines for week 4 are out and bills are -2.5.

Off the top of my head these are the guys that will be sure to miss our games.  Hopefully there's more to come.

 

49ers - Bosa, Thomas

Broncos - Miller, Sutton

Raiders - Incognito, Mariota (if Carr goes down), 

Chargers - James, Pouncey

 

I know the Seahawks lost Irvin but no other major injuries come to mind.  Same with the Cardinals.  Hopefully Adoree Jackson won't be back for the Titans in three weeks.

This 100%, strength of schedule is a week to week thing. 49ers looked Super Bowl ready two weeks ago, now they have a practice squad offense. It only takes 1-2 key injuries to make some of these teams pretty weak. Same goes for us but everyone outside of bills fans mostly counts their buffalo game as a win anyways.

For all the chatter last year about the Bills feasting on weaker teams, that narrative significantly changes this year if they win the division as they will have beaten a number of playoff contenders. 
 

Taking down the Rams is a step in the right direction!

The schedule is tough but two games that look to have got decidedly easier based on injuries are Denver and San Fran. 

 

I think the Bills will beat the Raiders so if they can win this week, get three out of 4 the rest of the way in the division and beat the beaten up Broncos and 9ers that is 9 wins. They would need 1 more to be guaranteed a playoff spot and that might well also be enough for a home game. So while it is tough there are multiple routes to 10+ wins.

We can get there with 9 this year, but we better get 11 to get a home game.

Tougher the better want to see how this team measures up against the top teams. It is valuable to Allen and his development.
