NFL Preview Show Extravaganza: Buffalo Bills

We close out the first division of the AFC. We finish up the AFC East with the Tornt.........Buffalo Bills.

In a division decimated by a dominant New England Patriots, it was the Bills that ended up being second chair in the AFC East. The Bills finished the season 7-9.

They started the regular season 1-4 and appeared to be floating in the basement of the division. However, the Bills would reel off six of eight wins and appeared to be in playoff contention. The Bills would lose their final three games and missed out on a Wild Card berth. Changes are in store for the 2008 season.

It appears as though the JP Losman experiment is all but over in Buffalo. As a rookie, Trent Edwards stepped up as quarterback, going 5-4 in 10 games, throwing seven touchdowns. The third round draft pick in 2007 showed much promise. With a star-in-the-making running back and a solid receiving corp, Edwards could have a breakout year in 2008.

The Bills open up the 2008 season at home when they face the Seattle Seahawks. At home, the Bills will face San Diego, Cleveland and Oakland. On the road, the Bills will face St. Louis, KC and Denver.

Time for those burnin' questions (yearbook style):
  • Will Canada love the Bills: They already do

  • Potential name for (possibly) new Toronto team: The Maple Leafs (PSYCHE!)

  • Bills player most likely to be beloved by the Toronto crowd: Terrence McGee

  • How long before the Bills move to Toronto: Hopefully never

  • Passing yards and touchdowns for Trent Edwards: 2800 yards, 19 touchdowns

  • Rushing yards for Marshawn Lynch: 1300

  • Coolest names (Top 3): Kawika Mitchell, Langston Walker, Jabari Greer

  • 80s song to best describe team: Rain on the Scarecrow- John Mellencamp

  • In 2008, the Bills will: Go 9-7, finish in second place
That's all I have, you guys enjoy the weekend.
