A weekly examination of the Bills' ESPN.com Power Ranking:
Preseason: 30 | Last Week: 23 | ESPN.com Power Ranking since 2002
They held steady at No. 23 last week, but the Bills slid to No. 25 this week after being defeated in overtime by the Cincinnati Bengals.
It's expected, and the Bills are right where they should be. With a 2-4 record, it's hard not to place them in the bottom third of the NFL.
The voting broke down this way: four votes for No. 24, one vote for No. 25, and one vote for No. 27. However you slice it, that's the range where the Bills belong.
Buffalo faces as tough a stretch as any team in the coming weeks. The Bills travel to No. 14 Miami this weekend, then visit the No. 3 Saints, then host the No. 2 Chiefs.
Hold on, because it may be a bumpy ride.
