The staff from Buffalo Rumblings took the time to weigh in with their predictions on the win-loss record for the Buffalo Bills this season. There are plenty of thoughts on the new quarterbacks Womens Matt Milano Jersey , offensive coordinator and additions to the defense.Dan Lavoie, Bills season prediction: 7-9Last year I was very pessimistic about the Bills team. Instead, the veterans provided stability, the strong defense kept games close for the disappointing offense to keep up, and Sean McDermott demonstrated that team cohesion can be used to bring an underappreciated roster to a winning season. With Nathan Peterman and rookie Josh Allen likely to split starts this year, I’m tempted to predict another disappointing season for the Bills, but optimism from McDermott’s first season has me giving the Bills a bump to near .500 status.Sean Murphy, Bills season prediction: 6-10I wish I could be more optimistic, but with a brutal September schedule, a below-average offensive line, and a quarterback situation that is at least one year away from being league-average, I can’t be. I also thought Buffalo would be 5-11 last year, and I’ve never been happier to have been wrong about something. I hope to be wrong again this year!Matt Warren Authentic Tre'Davious White Jersey , Bills season prediction: 6-10I don’t see how the offense doesn’t take a huge step back in 2018 and I expect the defense to regress to the mean in the turnover department. Plus they got really lucky last year.Danyel Geist, Bills season prediction: 6-10Unfortunately I have too man worries about the offensive line and pass rush. I also don’t think the Bills are in the business of pulling off close wins this year because of those issues.Jeff Kantrowski, Bills season prediction: 8-8Of course I would love to say 19-0! The defensive efforts will keep many games close - but the new look offense isn’t always pretty. Staying around .500 seems to be a safe bet.John Boccacino, Bills season prediction: 9-7As important as the play of quarterback Nathan Peterman (and eventually rookie Josh Allen) will be towards the success of the Bills in 2018, the offensive and defensive lines hold the real keys. If the o-line situation stabilizes, LeSean McCoy (and hopefully preseason surprise Marcus Murphy) will generate enough offense to overcome any inconsistent QB play. The pass rush should be better with the additions of Trent Murphy, Star Lotulelei, and Harrison Phillips. Tre’Davious White, Micah Hyde, Jordan Poyer and the Bill Collectors will continue last year’s trend of forcing turnovers, as the defense keeps this team in the playoff hunt.Dylan Zadonwicz, Bills season prediction: 5-11This Bills are on the hot seat for taking a step back this season. Losing two starting offensive linemen will hurt any team’s offense, especially if you don’t replace them. The defense got better up front but weaker in the secondary and they will have to do more than they did last year to keep the Bills in games. I also think there is a chance that Allen sits the entire year if the offensive line’s poor play continues throughout the season. McDermott and Beane are smart enough to not put Allen in situations he can’t win.Anthony Marino Womens Rafael Bush Jersey , Bills season prediction: 9-7While it may be easy for some to be pessimistic about the upcoming season, I remain optimistic about the Bills. The defense should be improved following the offseason additions, and Brian Daboll will create enough mismatches on offense for the young quarterbacks to exploit. The Bills make the playoffs again in 2018.What are your thoughts on the 2018 season? Be sure to share your predictions for the upcoming season in the comments section below. ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) — After a poor first half of the season, the Buffalo Bills are in position to close the season on a roll.Following a 24-21 win over Jacksonville on Sunday, the Bills (4-7) have won two straight and shown noticeable improvement in recent weeks.Though a return to the playoffs may be far-fetched, four of Buffalo's final five opponents have losing records — which puts the team in position to show its recent run is no fluke. "It's about us growing and developing a strong foundation and the culture that we want and doing things the right way, creating a mindset," Bills coach Sean McDermott said."You're seeing yesterday some of the fruits of that labor and the guys buying into that. Not that they didn't buy in before, but we're developing now and you're starting to see some of the results on the field."A strong finish to the season would go a long way in providing McDermott and general manager Brandon Beane validation with their youth movement.The biggest change in recent weeks has been the uptick in production on offense. For the first time this season, the Bills have scored 24 or more points and topped 300 yards in back-to-back games.Journeyman quarterback Matt Barkley first breathed life into the offense, throwing for 232 yards in a 41-10 win over the New York Jets. The upswing continued in rookie Josh Allen's return to the lineup after the QB missed four games with an elbow injury.On Sunday, Allen threw for 160 yards — which included a 75-yard touchdown pass to fellow rookie Robert Foster — and ran for 99 yards , establishing a franchise record for rushing yards by a quarterback in a game."Love the energy he brought," Bills offensive coordinator Brian Daboll said of Allen. "Competitive. Gotta be smart and know when to get out of bounds but made plays with his legs, made plays with his arm. He had a good game, but we've got to build off that and be better next week."Foster and Isaiah McKenzie have provided a jolt to the Bills passing game, adding some much-needed speed to open things up on offense.While promising, the Bills still have plenty to clean up offensively. Aside from the long touchdown pass, Allen completed seven throws for 85 yards against Jacksonville and had other big gains wiped out by penalties. Penalties were an issue for both teams; Buffalo finished with 13.Buffalo's run defense was also vulnerable against the Jaguars. The Bills allowed 95 yards and two touchdowns to Leonard Fournette on 18 attempts before Fournette was ejected late in the third quarter following a scuffle.The Bills grabbed the upper hand following Fournette's skirmish with defensive end Shaq Lawson — which they felt was more than just a momentary boost."That was a huge moment for our defense in this season," safety Jordan Poyer said. "Not just in this game, but in this season in giving us confidence that we can. This defense has come a long way since the beginning of the season and we are just going to continue to work and continue to put ourselves out there on the field."Buffalo's next opponent is the Miami Dolphins (5-6), who have lost four of their past five games."We focus on one game at a time," McDermott said. "That's really where our focus is."
