Does anybody else expect Atlanta to slide back this season?  I don't think they'll get over that Super Bowl collapse easily, and they lost their OC.  I'm glad we're playing them early in the season and I don't automatically chalk it up as a loss just because it's in their building.

I think Atlanta, @ home, steamrolls the Bills...Beside the 2 NE games, it's going to be our toughest matchup.....

Talking about getting steamrolled in the fourth game of the season in April?

Pretty silly stuff.

Not really.....I just think they are by far a better team than the Bills.....this is assuming everyone is healthy of course....no draft can make up for the gap between us and them...IMO....

I feel like it's weird to have such a hard opinion in a game like football.

People said we would be crushed by the Cards and Pats last year.

We steamroll the Cards, and face the third string Pats qb.

I'm not wishing it but what if something happens to Ryan? What if they just come out and stink? Happens all the time, every year.

Some teams step up, others regress.

Seems weird with so much to still happen before we get there that you see a blowout already.

Do you think non-Bills fans spent more than 5 seconds evaluating the strength of the Bills schedule before responding?

 

33% were probably surprised there was a team called Buffalo in the NFL.

Well, I did say " this is assuming everyone is healthy of course ".....and who knows, we might win that game...anything is possible....but if I had to put $ down on which games are going to be ugly for us next year, I would pick NE 2X and Atlanta.....

I think there are better odds that no games will be "ugly" -- after all, they were in just about every game last year with as undisciplined a head coach as may be humanly possible.

 

Saint Doug coaches last year's team to 10-6, probably.

McD will be a better HC than Rex, I'm sure of it....but we played Brady only once, and were really never in that game.....and they get Gronk back plus the additions of the off season...so I think those 2 games could get very ugly......and Atlanta, IMO is the real deal......at their brand new stadium, it's going to be a tall task for our Bills....that offense is just ridiculous.....hopefully I'm wrong....

Why they just couldn't put team names on this instead of location is beyond me

Anyone know why the Jets and Raiders have (AFC) next to them? 

 

Not Raiders, LA.  AFC signifies Bills play the AFC teams in those cities.

I'm going to go ahead and say it's a bonus that they play NFC south given their head coaches familiarity with those opponents

I'd have figured it out, I think, by week 3, haven't read anything about franchise shifts since the season ended...
