The Buffalo Bills have one of the best rosters in the NFL heading into the 2022 season. They have some high expectations for themselves and many people expect them to meet those expectations as they are currently the betting favorites to win the Super Bowl.
Led by quarterback Josh Allen, this offense has a chance to be among the best in the NFL. Stefon Diggs is a star at the wide receiver position and Gabriel Davis looks like a breakout star after his four-touchdown game in the Divisional Round against the Kansas City Chiefs.
On defense, the rich got richer this offseason. Buffalo, who had the No. 1 overall defense and No. 1 overall pass defense, added future Hall of Famer and vaunted pass rusher, Von Miller, to the mix this offseason. The secondary has some question marks right now, as Tre’Davious White recovers from his ACL surgery, but the front seven should be strong enough to carry them until the backend gets things figured out.
The Bills have all of the pieces to reach the promised land and they are a popular pick among analysts to make it there. Former player Bart Scott, who now makes regular appearances on ESPN’s First Take and ESPN Radio, believes it is Buffalo’s time to win the big one.
“To win a Super Bowl you have to suffer. … I feel like Josh Allen and the Buffalo Bills have suffered enough and it’s time.”
The Bills suffered an excruciating loss in last season’s playoffs when they lost to the Kansas City Chiefs in overtime during the divisional round. Allen and Patrick Mahomes put on a show in what was one of the best football games in recent history unless you are a defensive kind of person.
That was the second consecutive postseason that the Bills were defeated by the Chiefs, as they fell in the AFC Championship Game the year prior. Those experiences, in Scott’s opinion, should be enough to help get Buffalo over the hump.
Even before Allen took over as the starter, the franchise has suffered a ton with four straight Super Bowl losses in the early 90s, including Wide Right against the New York Giants. The Music City Miracle also came against the Bills, as they have certainly paid their dues and taken their lumps.
