Buffalo Bills Land In Top Spot In NFL Power Rankings
The Buffalo Bills were favorites to win the Super Bowl 57 as soon as Super Bowl 56 ended with the Los Angeles Rams beating the Cincinnati Bengals.
The Bills continued to be the odds-on favorite to win Super Bowl 57 at the start of free agency and now the trend of the Bills being number one continues after the NFL draft.
We are one week past the annual NFL draft and the Buffalo Bills remain the odds-on favorite to win the Super Bowl in the latest "Power" rankings on NFL.com.
The Bills remain in the top spot on NFL.com after they used the NFL draft to help shore up some areas of concern heading into the season. Here is what the NFL.com reporters had to say about the Bills' 2022 draft.
The Bills used the draft to put the finishing touches on a loaded roster that has balance on both sides of the ball. First-round pick Kaiir Elam fills the void across from standout cornerback Tre'Davious White, while second-round pick James Cook -- brother of Vikings stud Dalvin -- adds some needed juice to the running back room. Josh Allen wasn’t exactly hurting for weapons to begin with, but Cook's versatility, along with the quiet signing of underrated slot man Jamison Crowder, will make Buffalo’s attack even more difficult to contend with. Good luck, AFC.
There was some but not a lot of movement in the Power Rankings Top 10 after the NFL Draft. Here is a look at NFL.com's Top 10 as of today.
1. Buffalo Bills (Same as before the draft)
2. Los Angeles Rams (Same as before the draft)
3. Tampa Bay Buccaneers (Up one spot)
4. Cincinnati Bengals (Down one spot)
5. San Franciso 49ers (Same as before the draft)
6. Green Bay Packers (Same as before the draft)
7. Kansas Chiefs (Up two spots)
8. Denver Broncos (Same as before the draft)
9. Los Angeles Chargers (Down two spots)
10 Las Vegas Raiders (Up one spot)
Of course, these rankings really don't mean much, it is what you do on the field that matters but after almost 20 years of being a fan of a bad to mediocre team, it is nice to see the Bills at the top of any list.
