2020 represents a golden opportunity for the Buffalo Bills to seize control of the AFC East and make a deep postseason run. 

The Buffalo Bills have been patiently waiting for their chance to take control of the AFC East for the last several years. It’s time for them to make their move in 2020. This is the year where they should seize power in their own division.

Much of the conversation about Buffalo’s future prospects correctly centers around Josh Allen’s play at the quarterback position. He’s got a ton of athleticism, but his passing accuracy is a major question mark.

The team brought in a healthy amount of defensive reinforcements to solidify the unit ahead of the 2020 regular season as well. In particular, head coach Sean McDermott brought in several players he was familiar with from his days with the Carolina Panthers. Time will tell if those veterans can lead Buffalo to the promised land.

It’s clear things are looking up for the Bills. Read on to discover the top five reasons why Buffalo will win the AFC East.

5. The Jets and Dolphins are weak

Buffalo’s chances of winning the division in 2020 are boosted by the fact that it will almost certainly be a two-horse race. The Patriots and Bills should easily be the class of the AFC East. It’s hard to envision a scenario where either the New York Jets or Miami Dolphins get into the mix.

The Bills should be able to bank four wins in their two games against each of the division bottom-feeders. Buffalo is built to hammer inferior opposition. Banking those wins should give the team a clear advantage in the AFC East race.

This team can’t afford to take any game for granted, but will be a heavy favorite in most of its own division games. That’s a recipe for success in Buffalo.
