9. Buffalo Bills (4-1)
Recap: It wasn’t pretty, but the Buffalo Bills went into Nashville and escaped with a win over the Tennessee Titans in what was a defensive struggle between the two teams. The Bills got consistent pressure on Marcus Mariota all game and notched five sacks and eight QB hits. Josh Allen made the plays when he needed to, and the Bills’ rushing attack closed it out.
Pros: Allen had one of his better games of the season after completing nearly 72 percent of his passes against a very good Titans defense. The Bills once again showed off defensively, and their unit remains one of the best in the NFL this season.
Cons: Despite some solid runs late, the Bills need some more help from their rushing attack. Getting Devin Singletary back will no doubt help that cause.
Outlook: The Bills are off to a 4-1 start and remain one of the more surprising teams in the AFC. They’ll enjoy a bye in Week 6 before what will basically be an automatic win against the Miami Dolphins in Week 7.
