Bills picked as a team to end playoff drought

Posted by Chris Brown on June 3, 2016 – 2:52 pm

The Buffalo Bills currently have the longest playoff drought in the NFL at 16 years. There are a host of other teams that haven’t sniffed the postseason in a while as well. Recently BleacherReport put together a list of teams most likely to vanquish their postseason demons in 2016 and Buffalo made the list.

Their report had Buffalo as one of six teams most likely to end their playoff futility. Here was BR’s assessment.

The Bills came close to earning a wild-card berth in head coach Rex Ryan’s first season at the helm until they suffered four close losses in the last seven weeks. A redeeming victory came against the divisional foe New York Jets in Week 17 to keep Gang Green from ending their own playoff drought. But the expectation is for this team to capitalize on having its best quarterback since Doug Flutie in Tyrod Taylor and to challenge the Patriots for the division.

Few teams have a more talented roster from top to bottom. A few question marks exist at wide receiver and along the offensive line (particularly in terms of depth), but the power-run offense and smashmouth defense are intimidating for opponents to prepare for. The Bills’ biggest foes last year were themselves, as they tied for the league lead in penalties committed with 143.   

Odds Shark has the Bills tied for second as favorites in the AFC East, which should put them in line to compete for a wild-card berth.

The five other teams picked in the report were Oakland, Jacksonville, NY Jets, NY Giants and Tampa Bay.

Finishing in 4th qtr. is Ryan’s focus

Posted by Chris Brown on March 30, 2016 – 1:40 pm

The Bills finished their first season under head coach Rex Ryan at 8-8. It obviously was not where they wanted to be at the end of the regular season. Looking back on the season and reviewing everything, Ryan believes performing more consistently at the end of games is the key to improving on their won-loss record last season.

Appearing on NFL Total Access, Ryan pointed to the opportunities they had to win games last season when they came up short.

“I think that’s a big thing,” he said. “We had the ball in our hand and lost five games with the ball in our hand to go win or tie, and we couldn’t find a way to get it done. And then defensively, we have to be better on defense. There is no question about it. I think there is where we fell off from expectations – certainly my expectations, the team’s expectations and our fans’ expectations. So everybody’s. So we have something to prove and we’ll see what happens. We lost a lot of good players, but we have to find a way to get better. One of those things, having my brother on staff I think is going to be a huge thing for us, a huge plus for us.”

Ryan said he has confidence in Tyrod Taylor’s ability to win games for the Bills. One area where he’d like to see him advance his game is making more plays in the middle of the field in the pass game.
