Week 2 Buffalo Bills Power Rankings Compilation

Here is the week 1 Bills power ranking comp, now to week 2 after a win over the Bears:

CBS Sports 21:

The Bills move up 8 sports and we learn who they play week 2
"That was an impressive road victory against the Bears. It wasn't pretty, but they found a way. Now comes Miami."

ESPN 23:
Six sport jump and another mention of Miami but some actual stats that are useful!
"The Bills used 20 zone-read rushes and averaged 7.1 yards per rush on those attempts. EJ Manuel and the Bills had an impressive start, but so did their Week 2 opponent, Miami."

Walter Football 28:
Haters gon' hate, Bills only move up four spots (only ahead of Dallas, Wash, Giants and Oakland ouch)
"I didn't hear what he said, but I was told that Eric Wood called me out for having the Bills ranked No. 32. Oooohhh, Buffalo beat the crappy Bears, whoop dee freaking doo. I'll move the Bills up eventually, but only if I see some consistency from E.J. Manuel. I don't trust him to keep playing 25:
An attempt at humor doesn't work but Byrd vi-a-vis Mario is interesting-ish (four spot jump)
"Project Make The Playoffs For The First Time In 15 Years is off and running this offseason after Project Make The Playoffs For The First Time In 14 Years failed in 2013. The Bills have been posting photos of head coach Doug Marrone and new O-line acquisitions in the snow that are heartwarming ... what's more important at this stage is the development of EJ Manuel and how the secondary will fare minus Jairus Byrd. Yes, the club didn't want to spend too much money on a safety. But is Mario Williams that much more impactful? The club guaranteed him $50 million two years ago. Byrd's signing bonus in New Orleans was half that."

Yahoo Sports 24:
Four spot leap but still no faith
"Great, fantastic win on the road to start the season. I'm not ready to give them a huge bump up just yet, but they're on that path."

26. Buffalo Bills (No. 30; 1-0):  With a win at Chicago and the team sold to Terry Pegula, it’s been the best week in Buffalo since the last AFC title game win.
