What would be considered a successful season for The Buffalo Bills?

Sep 9, 2022

As this blog goes live, the Buffalo Bills have taken the field to face off against the defending Super Bowl champions, the Los Angeles Rams.

I think it’s clear to everybody that Buffalo isn’t only the best team in the AFC East. They’re one of the best teams in the NFL. Buffalo is also in unfamiliar territory. After being the joke of the AFC East since the early 2000s, they’re now entering a season with hefty expectations on their shoulders.
I think Bills Mafia is starting to sense it as well. I saw a Twitter post from a Bills fan who was still trying to play the underdog card. It’s much harder to break your heart when expectations are low. However, Bills fans have to accept reality. Either the Buffalo Bills will live up to expectations, or it will be a massively disappointing season. End of story.

Welcome to the big leagues; you can’t be favourites to win the Super Bowl, and you can’t have every media pundit on the planet put you in the big game. You can’t have every rational fan tip their hat to you and expect us to accept you against the world mentality. 

Buffalo is trying to get over the final hurdle. The Bills are hoping not to disappoint their fan base again.

On tonight’s Ray’s Sports Rant episode, I talk to Kevin Guerard, NFL Twitter analyst, Miami Dolphins fan, and Jordan Poyer advocate. I ask Kevin to give his update on the state of the AFC East. What are realistic expectations for the Miami Dolphins this season, and is this Tua’s last chance to prove he can lead an NFL team? Is it unreasonable for people to expect the New England Patriots to make the playoffs? As an outsider looking in on the Buffalo Bills, what would be considered a successful season for Buffalo? How many games will the New York Jets win, and how improved will they look this season?
