The Bills’ free-agent spending spree pays off with Mario Williams and Mark Anderson spearheading a championship-caliber defense, but the inconsistent play of Ryan Fitzpatrick will keep them out of the postseason tournament.
Prediction: 9-7, second in AFC East
The Bills spent a lot of money in free agency to upgrade their pass rush; pricey additions Mario Williams and Mark Anderson should provide an immediate boost. If they can get steady play from quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick, they'll be in the mix for a wild-card berth.
Prediction: 8-8, second in AFC East
I'm buying Buffalo. I think Mario Williams, Kyle Williams, Marcell Dareus and Mark Anderson will form the best defensive line in the entire league. Fred Jackson and Eric Wood are healthy after being injured during last year's second-half fold.
Prediction: 10-6, third in AFC East
The front four will help a potentially explosive offense. Ryan Fitzpatrick has to cut back on interceptions.
Prediction: 10-6, second in AFC East
The Bills believe Williams should help -- significantly -- a defense that couldn’t stop the run or keep opponents from scoring. Williams’ vow: he’ll get into the offensive backfield and his D-line mates will meet him there. That would work.
