16. The Buffalo Bills remain one of those teams capable of beating just about everyone and losing to everyone as well. They too like many teams on the back end of these rankings have a new head coach in Sean McDermott. The Bills have some talent but they reside in a division they can’t win. The New England Patriots will win the AFC East again this season. The Bills have a chance at second place but their top players must have outstanding seasons. If Lesean McCoy, Tyrod Taylor, and Marcell Dareus can stay healthy and have big years, the Bills could challenge for a playoff spot.. . . Buffalo Bills. 24. team

15. The Saints start out the season with a schedule loaded with playoff teams from last season in the first six games. Fortunately they have quarterback Drew Brees and one of the best offenses in football to deal with it. However, the Saints defense is a work in progress and will have it’s hands full combating the other offenses in the NFC South.. . . New Orleans Saints. 23. team
