Compilation of the Bills power rankings heading into week 1
CBS Sports 29:
The offense has been horrible in the preseason. Did they make a mistake on EJ Manuel?
The Bills' defense allowed a lower QBR than any team except the Super
Bowl champions. The offense finished 25th in efficiency, and Buffalo
will go nowhere until that improves.
My LVH Supercontest partner, Matvei, made a short, but fantastic point
about the Bills' issues in practice during a recent conversation: "The
Bills are off the rails. No leadership. No focus. No quarterback."
So true. E.J. Manuel is not going to lead the Bills. The team lost key
personnel this offseason to free agency and injury, and it will struggle

Yahoo Sports 28:
Buffalo fans, you better hope preseason results don't matter.
Sammy Watkins is
supposed to be OK for
Week 1 after injuring his ribs in the preseason finale. That's super news for Buffalo, because the
Bills' passing game mostly stunk in August -- even when the No. 4 overall pick was on the field. Honestly, even if linebacker
torn his ACL, this team would be bound to finish below .500 with its offense performing like this.
Highest 28, lowest 32. Jeez
