Bills climb to top of NFL power rankings this week


Week 4 result: Won against Houston 40-0

The Buffalo Bills are pretty much on a roll.

Since falling to the Steelers in Week 1, Buffalo has won three straight wins. In all three games, the Bills scored at least 35 points. In two of three games (including Sunday’s dismantling of the outdated Texans), the Bills have not allowed any points.

Granted, Sunday’s win is marked with a partial asterisk in that it came against perhaps the most talented-deficient team in the league (especially on offense). The Bills weren’t good in the red zone either — three touchdowns in seven trips.

But Buffalo racked up 450 total yards, allowed 109, forced five Houston turnovers, and recorded three sacks in a beating about as deep as you’ll see at the NFL level.

Bills roll, but next week’s game will increase the difficulty a bit.

In Week 5, the Bills head to Arrowhead for a Sunday night rematch of last year’s AFC Championship game with the Chiefs.

At least one analyst expects them to win.

“With all due respect to the Cardinals, the Bills are the most dominant team in the NFL right now,” said Gagnon. “They have dominated the competition 118-21 for the past three weeks, and Josh Allen hasn’t even caught his pace. They have a very good chance of beating the Chiefs.”
