Buffalo’s special teams units had a banner year in 2014 finishing second in the league overall. This year their performance slipped due to a number of factors, but their ranking was still middle of the pack when all was said and done.

Longtime Dallas Morning News columnist Rick Gosselin recently released his 2015 NFL special teams rankings, which measures teams in 22 different categories and assigns points based on their ranking from 1 to 32. Buffalo finished 16th in 2015 with 357 points.

Topping the league were Baltimore, the New York Giants and Jacksonville as they compiled the lowest scores (low score wins). Here’s a look at Gosselin’s rankings list for 2015.
