2021 Buffalo Bills Preview

Head Coach: Sean McDermott

2020

Record: 13-3

The Bills have been ascending for a while now, and in 2020 they finally cracked into that small group of “elite” teams. They didn’t reach the top of the mountain; the D was still a bit too average. But they’re now in that conversation.

2021

2021 Draft Picks

1-30 DE Gregory Rousseau, Miami

2-61 DE Carlos Basham Jr. Wake Forest

3-93 T Spencer Brown, Northern Iowa

5-161 T Tommy Doyle, Miami, Ohio

6-203 WR Marquez Stevenson, Houston

6-212 DB Damar Hamlin, Pittsburgh

6-213 DB Rachad Wildgoose, Wisconsin

7-236 G Jacks Anderson, Texas Tech

The Bills beefed up their lines and found some potential gems in the defensive backfield to boot.

Key Pick Ups

Emmanuel Sanders – WR (from Saints)

Matt Breida – RB (from Dolphins)

Mitchell Trubisky – QB (from Bears)

Jacob Hollister – TE (from Seahawks)

Sanders and Breida give the Allen even more weapons to play with. Hollister gives them depth at TE and opens a number of formations for the Bills. Trubisky provides a solid backup for Allen.

Key Losses

John Brown – WR (to Raiders)

Andre Roberts – WR (to Texans)

Tyler Kroft – TE (to Jets)

Nothing here that will affect the Bills in any significant way.

Offense

Offensive Coordinator: Brian Daboll

2020 Points Scored: 501 (2nd)

There is literally no discernible weakness in the Bills offense, and not only are they good, they’re deep. Allen went from promising to superstar status in a year. It’ll take more than a year, but with the line he has the weapons around him… he’s a legit MVP candidate.

Defense

2020 Points Allowed: 375 (16th)

Defensive Coordinator: Leslie Frazier

The Bills did help themselves on this side of the line in the draft… for the future. However, there isn’t anyone in there who looks like they’ll have a real impact in 2021. Free agency didn’t offer up much, either, so essentially you’re going to get what they had last year… a very average D.

Special Teams

The Bills special teams unit was one of the NFL’s best in 2020, spearheaded by K Tyler Bass, who kicks 50 yarders like some guys kick PATs. No reason to thin that will change this year.

If Things Go Well

Josh Allen plays at an MVP level again. The D improves, looking more like the 2019 version than 2020., and the Bills reach the holy land.

If They Don’t

If the D doesn’t get any better, the Bills could find themselves in some shootouts. If it turns out 2020 was a fluke and not the norm for Allen, the Bills will slip back into that second tier.

Prediction

One:2020 was no fluke for Allen; it wasn’t just his numbers, it was his decision making.. oh, and that 70% completion rate for an entire year. Two: The schedule is as easy as anyone in the NFL. Three: in today’s NFL, you don’t need a great D if you can score at an elite level. Go ahead and book your Super Bowl seats now, Bills Mafia.
