3rd AFC East

Grade : C+

2018 was a season to forget for Buffalo. The Bills opened the season getting blown out by the Ravens 47-3, giving rookie quarterback {{playerID-602|Josh Allen}} an early wake-up call in Week 1. Allen struggled throughout his rookie year, and was even benched midway through the year, sitting out week 7-12. In week 13, Allen made his comeback, taking over the reigns at QB for the rest of his season. The rookie quarterback was able to find a groove near the end of the season, going on to lead the Bills in passing and rushing yards. The Bills won 4 of their last 7 games, turning a horrible season into just a “okay” one.

2019-20 Season Outlook

If the 2018 Bills team was able to win 6 games with the flawed roster they had, then Buffalo has potential going forward. The Bills front office has carried over $78 million in cap space to 2019, allowing Buffalo to beef up any part of their roster. The good news is that the Bills should add many players this offseason. The bad news? There is not much talent at the wide receiver position in the free agent class of 2019. If there is anything that this Bills team needs, it’s an effective slot receiver, as well as a big, physical receiver for the young Josh Allen to throw to.

Bills defensive tackle Kyle Williams is expected to depart from the Bills This offseason. The Bills have the money to go out and replace Williams, and with Ndamukong Suh available, Buffalo could try and splash the cash on a big upgrade.
