Media Mashup: Buffalo Bills Week 2 Power Rankings

Published

on

With Week 2 in the books, we’ve got a fresh set of NFL Power Rankings to look at. The Buffalo Bills made short work of the AFC’s #1 seed from a year ago, just one week removed from their dismantling of the Super Bowl Champion L.A. Rams. Last week, the Buffalo Bills were the consensus #1 team in the league, but will they maintain their hold on the NFL after a week full of surprises? Here are your Week 2 NFL Power Rankings, and what everyone thinks of the Buffalo Bills right now.

“Monday night’s 41-7 pasting of the Titans was another loud message to the NFL that the measuring stick for all teams can be found in Western New York. Josh Allen threw for 317 yards and four touchdowns in just three quarters of work, while Stefon Diggs piled up 12 catches for 148 yards and three scores … also in just three quarters of work. Throw in a Matt Milano pick-six and a wall of blue surrounding Derrick Henry every time the Titans back touched the ball, and, well, this was as pure a distillation of dominance as we might see all season. Two weeks in, and the Bills exist in a class of their own.”

“Adding Von Miller to an already-stout defense is the latest in a long line of great moves that have made the Bills the juggernaut they are. Everything we’ve seen through two weeks, including a 41-7 drubbing of the Titans, confirms their status as the Super Bowl favorite.”

Biggest early adjustment: Improve the running backs production

“Quarterback Josh Allen finished the Bills’ season opener as the team’s leading rusher. In the second game against the Titans, Buffalo struggled to pick up first downs in short-yardage situations. This Buffalo offense has high potential, there’s no doubt about that, but an inability to get the running game going was an issue at times for the Bills last year. They don’t need Devin Singletary to have 20-plus carries a game, but this offense could be even harder to stop if it was able to get consistent production from its running backs.” — Alaina Getzenberg

“When one team leads the NFL with a point differential of +55 through two games and the second-place teams (Kansas City and Tampa Bay) have less than half that (+26), there’s not much argument about who is the best team in the league. Through two weeks, the Bills have the best defense in the league by EPA per drive and are tied for fifth in EPA per drive on offense, according to TruMedia, which probably undersells how good the offense has been.

Forward-thinking hardware store managers in Glendale, Ariz., should begin marking up the price of folding tables.”

“They left no doubt Monday night against the Titans as to who the best team is right now. But now they face a tough road test at Miami on a short week. That won’t be easy.”

“It’s scary how routine the Bills are absolutely disposing of excellent NFL teams and really good opposing coordinators. The win over the Titans was another exclamation point. The challenge now is to evolve, for when someone finally figures out how to stop you.”

“The Bills have had a long time to rest after flexing on the Super Bowl champion Rams in the kickoff opener in Week 1. They were well positioned to stop the Titans nemesis at home on Monday night with their loaded offense and defense.”

“The Bills look like they could go 17-0. That said, I wonder how they’ll handle bad weather, given that all of the offense goes through Josh Allen.”

“The Buffalo Bills continue to prove they are the best team in the NFL. Through two weeks, Buffalo’s offense ranks first in points per game (36), second in points per play (0.585) and leads the NFL in third-down conversion rate (60.87%). On the other side of the ball, Buffalo is No.1 in the NFL defense rankings thanks to a unit that allows the fewest yards per play (4.6) with the lowest scoring rate allowed (28%) and the highest pressure rate (30.8%). Buffalo checks every single box to be No. 1 in the NFL power rankings.”
