Poll: Predicting the Bills' 2012 record
By James Walker
The Buffalo Bills have garnered a lot of hype this offseason. Stellar acquisitions in free agency and a solid draft have made the Bills one of the popular picks to surprise this season. (I question if Buffalo's a sleeper anymore.)
But in our latest AFC East poll, we want to know what our community thinks of the Bills. How many victories will Buffalo have in 2012?
The Bills are coming off a last-place finish and a 6-10 record last season. A fast start was derailed by injuries and inconsistent play.
Buffalo’s front office promised to spend to the cap and went all out to field a quality team. The Bills added defensive ends Mario Williams and Mark Anderson, drafted cornerback Stephon Gilmore in the first round, and gave extensions to starting receiver Steve Johnson and tailback Fred Jackson.
Now, the bar has been raised. The Bills are expected to make the playoffs for the first time since 1999. Can Buffalo live up to the hype?
