3rd down pct. was top 10

Buffalo’s third down conversion percentage wound up ranked 28th in the league last season with a 32.5% success rate. As we ask in our Top 25 questions until training camp ‘Will the offense rank in the top 10?’ we discovered that the Bills showed they could be a top 10 attack on third downs.

That’s because through the first eight weeks of the 2011 season, Buffalo’s third down conversion percentage was a very solid 41.6%. That would’ve been good enough for eighth in the league last year had the Bills been able to sustain it. And that’s the focus, first recapturing the early season success last season and then sustaining it through the back half of the schedule this year.
