Emergence Of The Offense
Many thought that QB Josh Allen peaked in 2020 after putting up 4,544 passing yards and 37 touchdowns, however, through five games in 2021, he has already gone for 1,370 passing yards and 12 touchdowns. He is on pace to outperform his 2020 numbers. Allen is currently in the Top-8 in QBR (65.1), passing yards.
Aside from Allen, the Bills' wide receiver group has grown into one of the best in the league behind Stefon Diggs and Emmanuel Sanders who have combined for about 700 receiving yards and five touchdowns far. Also, tight end, Dawson Knox has been turning in a breakout third season as well with five receiving touchdowns.
With the offense starting to take shape and take down any team that gets in their way, it is going to be tough for any opposing defense to take them down.
On top of having the highest-scoring offense in the league (34.4 ppg) the Buffalo Bills defense is also the highest-scoring defense (12.8 ppg).
Along with being the highest-scoring defense, they are also ranked inside the top-5 in sacks (5), interceptions (9), points allowed (64), total yards allowed (1,259), and fumble recoveries (6).
They have elite talent at every position on defense including a secondary made up of Tre’Davious White, Jordan Poyer and, Micah Hyde. A linebacker group led by Tremaine Edmunds, and a front seven with Ed Oliver at the forefront.
With the Bills gaining more and more experience as they take the field each week, their odds will continue to shift in the right direction for Super Bowl 56.
