Buffalo Bills

Projected record: 4-11-1

Prognosticators should run away from Buffalo’s dysfunction, not to it. With the Pegulas firing Doug Whaley, it’s apparently first-year coach Sean McDermott’s club for the time being. His move to take the pool tables out of the locker room sounds good until you realize the Falcons went to the Super Bowl with three ping-pong tables in their locker room last year. And the Bills don’t seem to like or appreciate their above-average quarterback. Prepare for a step back in 2017.

Pivotal game: Week 7 vs. Buccaneers. Buffalo has a Week 6 bye and finishes the season with six games against teams who could make the playoffs. If the Bills want to be taken seriously, they need some early wins. Tampa Bay will be coming off consecutive games hosting the Patriots and traveling to Arizona.
