NFL Power Rankings Week 1: Kansas City Chiefs set the tone
By Will Lomas
12. Buffalo Bills
-Josh Allen isn’t great, but he is a dual-threat player who has home-run threats on offense that can score at any time. As much as I don’t like the idea of a Josh Allen-led team being this high, they have done everything they could to make sure that they limit the damage that he could do to them.
Defensively, the BIlls are going to be a great unit again from coaching to players and as boring as they may be, it is going to be brutal trying to beat this team without star players on offense that you can get the ball to.
11. Minnesota Vikings
-One day, we will get to see Yannick Ngakoue and Danielle Hunter on the field at the same time and there will be visible tears in the eyes of the offensive coordinator who has to try to call plays against that. Even without Hunter for a little while, the Vikings are going to be a team defined by the run game and an explosive defense.
Kirk Cousins is a top-12 QB in the NFL and even if he is just Alex Smith in purple, that should be enough to take advantage of defenses focused on stopping Dalvin Cook. They are a very good team, but the question is still, how far can they go?
