If there is a team that excerpts dominance but can’t get the final holy grail, it would be the Buffalo Bills who have won multiple championships in the American Football League (AFL) and in the National Football League (NFL), but have never won the prestigious Super Bowl despite appearing in four.
Over their 61 year journey which began in 1959, the Bills have had a few dominant periods in the AFL as well as in the NFL, when the two leagues merged in 1970. The first dominant years for the Bills came in the mid 60s, under coach Lou Saban.
After a slow start in their first years in the AFL, the Bills acquired running back Cookie Gilchrist and quarterback Jack Kemp in 1962. While the Bills appeared in their maiden playoff with a 26-8 loss to the Boston Patriots a year after signing the pair, it was the next few years where the Bills really asserted their presence in the competition.
From there on in, the Bills would make four consecutive AFL playoff appearances from 1963-66, claiming the AFL Championship in 1964 and 1965 when they defeated the San Diego Chargers on both occasions.
The next year would hurt Bills fans as they had a chance to go to the first Super Bowl (at the time it was the AFL vs the NFL), when they fell to the Kansas City Chiefs in the AFL Championship game.
When the AFL and NFL finally came as one in 1970, the Bills didn’t taste the success they had a decade earlier, in fact their only positive during the 70s could be the emergence of O.J. Simpson, despite debuting in 1969, it was in the 70s where he really made a name for himself.
During his time at the Bills before his move to San Francisco, Simpson made 112 apparences for the Bills, rushed 10,183 yards and scored 57 touchdowns. After claiming the AFC East division at the beginning of the 80s, the rest were mediocre until the Bills hired coach Marv Levy in 1986.
Since’s Levy’s appointment he installed a dominant team from 1988-97 which saw the Bills appear in the playoffs eight times (1988-1992 and 1994-1996) as well as clinching the AFC East six times throughout the 80s and 90s (1988-1991, 1993 and 1995).
Levy’s dominant team could also be due to the players he picked up such as Hall of Fame quarterback Jim Kelly, running back Thurman Thomas and defensive end Bruce Smith who all had pivotal roles to play during the dominant era.
Levy also took the Bills to four consecutive Super Bowl appearances from 1990-1993, however, they fell short on each four occasions. Since the dominance of the late 80s and early 90s the Bills had to endure a 17 year hiatus from playoff action during the 2000s and 2010s before they returned in 2017, in which they went down to Jacksonville in the wildcard playoffs 10-3.
Behind Josh Allen, the seventh pick in the 2018 draft, the Bills returned to the playoffs in 2019 after finishing second in the AFC East with a 10-6 record but were unfortunately eliminated by the Texans in an overtime thriller in the Wild Card Round.
Looking to help giving the weapons that Allen needed to thrive, Buffalo traded for Stefon Diggs from the Vikings, creating a top three QB-WR duo. Allen had an incredible break out year, finishing fifth in both passing yards and passing touchdowns while Diggs finished with the most receiving yards in the league.
The Bills took care of the Colts and the Ravens in the first two weeks of the postseason before running into the Chiefs in the AFC Championship, Buffalo’s first time back to that stage since 1993. Unfortunately the Chiefs’ offense was too much to handle and that is where the Bills’ season ended.
The Bills fell to the Kansas City Chiefs in last year’s AFC Championship game and now look to go one step further this season to try and make the Super Bowl. This Bills team is definitely a contender but do they have enough to make the Super Bowl and more importantly, enough to overcome the Kansas City Chiefs?
After years under the shadow of the Tom Brady led Patriots in the AFC East, the Bills finally broke through and were the number 2 seed in the AFC with a 13-3 record. The credit for this lies in their front office who has turned the Bills from the Patriots punching bag into a genuine bonafide contender in just 3 seasons.
The Bills are led by Coach Sean McDermott, who is a great defensive coach. Under McDermott, the Bills quickly became one of the best defenses in the league, with the secondary being their key strength. McDermott has utilized a 4-3 defense which doesn’t rely on the blitz and trust the front 4 to cause issues.
This defensive scheme has led the Bills to routinely rank in the top 10 under McDermott. Sean McDermott has been coaching in the NFL since 2001 and has been climbing the ranks from an assistant to the head coach all the way to head coach of the Buffalo Bills in 2017.
Just prior to his stint with the Bills, McDermott was the defensive coordinator for the Carolina Panthers and helped lead them and their top 5 defense to the Super Bowl. Now McDermott looks to return back to the Super Bowl with a team that has an ascending young quarterback and talented defense.
The Bills kept their core on both offense and defense by resigning key pieces like Linebacker Matt Milano and Offensive Tackle Daryl Williams. However, this offseason the Bills focused on filling the holes and addressing the issues that plagued them in 2020.
Due to McDermott’s scheme, the Bills drafted Greg Rousseau and added Carlos Basham to bolster the inconsistent front 4. The Bills also added receiver help with the underrated Emmanuel Sanders to help Josh Allen to improve. This Bills team is ready to make the jump, the question is just whether or not they have added enough pieces and if Josh Allen can improve more to get them to the Super Bowl.
Offensively the Bills have continued to improve. After acquiring superstar Stefon Diggs last season and now adding Emmanuel Sanders to a deep wide receiving group that includes the shifty Cole Beasley in the slot, Allen has plenty of weapons to pass it to.
On top of the strong wide receiving group which is likely top 10 in the league, the Bills also have the underrated Tight End Dawson Knox to act as a safety blanket for Allen. The Bills also have a talented and deep group at running back with 4 players who could be starters at a few teams in the league. They also have Josh Allen who is a giant man standing at 6’5 and loves to run the ball.
Because of his size and stature, Allen is a goal line threat. In fact Allen has more rushing touchdowns than Lamar Jackson. Between the running back group and Allen the Bills run game should improve if the offensive line can do their part.
The Bills biggest weakness is their offensive line which is a middle of the field unit. The unit has definitely been improving but they have been bad particularly in the running game. For the Bills to improve they need to get more out of this offensive line.
The Bills are still good enough in the air to put big points on the board but have struggled running the ball due to that average line. Offensively, if the line can’t improve, the burden seems to be on Josh Allen to elevate this team and win games from the air.
The Bills defense will be a top 10 in the league and under the defensive mind of Sean McDermott, the Bills have become one of the best bend, but don’t break defenses in the league. Although the Bills have several nice pieces on defense, the defense will be a top 10 unit due to McDermott’s tremendous scheme and coaching.
Last year the Bills played below expectations ranking 16th in passing yards allowed and 14th in rushing yards allowed. This was unusual for a team that was top 5 in previous years. A key reason for that was inconsistent play by individual players.
This Bills defensive unit is led by All Pro Tre’Davious White who is one of the best cornerbacks in the league and is a game changing talent. The Bills have one of the most underrated secondaries in the league with the safety duo of Micah Hyde and Jordan Poyer.
This secondary is by far the best part of this Bills defense and with the help of an improved front 7 they should be a formidable team. They should bounce back this year and become a top-10 group.
The Bills also have a strong linebacking core led by Matt Milano and Tremaine Edmunds. This duo is one of the best in the league and has been very good. The biggest hole was the defensive line last year but the front office has made moves to better this unit going into 2021.
If the front 4 can play up to the standard of the rest of the team, the Bills will have a defense capable of being one of the top 5 in the league and potentially good enough to take them to the Super Bowl.
The Bills entered the 2020 season with +2800 Super Bowl LV odds but made it all the way to the AFC Championship, seeing their odds get as low as +324, but the were ultimately eliminated before the Big Game.
When looking ahead to Super Bowl LVI, Buffalo has the equal fourth best odds of +1100 while also holding +550 odds for the AFC Championship, equal second best in the conference.
The Buffalo Bills exceeded expectations for this season and their record against the spread is evident of that. They finished 11-5 ATS, the equal best record in the league, being 6-2 at home and 5-3 on the road.
Behind Josh Allen and his dynamic skills, the Bills ended up with a 11-4-1 over/under record, equal third best in the league. They were 5-3 at home and 6-1-1 on the road, a record that topped the league.
