#1 Seed, Buffalo Bills:
The Buffalo Bills are coming off of back-to-back heartbreaking playoff losses vs their biggest rival Kansas City Chiefs. Josh Allen had a short but almost legendary playoff run with how efficient and dangerous he was on the offensive side of the ball, the Bills had built a team to beat Kansas City.
Buffalo had the feat pulled-off in the playoffs, but with only 13 seconds left Patrick Mahomes did the unthinkable and tied the game. The fuel inside the Buffalo Bills must burn like never before and after seeing their arch-rivals get weaker, I see the Bills coming for blood during the regular season and locking up the #1 seed.
However, this is counting that WR Stefon Diggs stays with the Bills. Diggs is Josh Allen’s safety blanket and a big reason he has been able to take that next step towards elite QB the last 2 years. Buffalo also beefed up their defensive line with Von Miller and are bringing most of their key pieces back for 2022.
Dolphins fans may think their new and improved team can compete with Buffalo, but wishful thinking fades quickly if the Bills stomp on the fish once again. Until Miami puts the proof on tape the Bills will continue to mop the floor with the AFC East.
