Rex always plays them tough. They lost 27-25 in Foxborough and 17-16 at MetLife. In both games, their kicker missed field goals.
Okay, so you're a Bills fanboy. I get it. In any event it's moot point -- the Bills won't even sniff the playoffs.

This is a QB league....the Bills don't even know who their quarterback is yet. That's why it's far-fetched to think that the Bills will make the playoffs, let alone knock off the defending champs and make it to the AFC Championship Game. I salute your loyalty to the Bills, but your hopes for your team are preventing you from realistically assessing your chances.

very true. i think however that romo is going to restructure his contract to allow enough cap room to let the cowboys either resign murray, or pick up another good running back, and still afford to pay bryant as a franchise player.

Everything is speculation at this point! Franchising a player is tricky, as is pushing money out into future years! Only reason I knew about Romo because I was checking Aaron's number for this year. Packers did a great job writing up his contract, didn't mortgage the future.

I knew Packers wouldn't franchise Cobb, but fans are in feeding frenzy. Media, NFL and ESPN, are saying Cobb is hitting free agency, etc.! There is a week yet, and it could go down to the wire. Nelson has a Packer friendly contract adds to the issue with Cobb. Do you pay him way more than Jordy, #1 WR???

Fans are saying Packers can't get to the playoffs without Cobb!!! Are you kidding me??? What???? After last year, of course, I'm hoping this is their year but I say that every year!

I don't entertain any thoughts of the Redskins having a winning season in 2015, but 3-13? That's not going to happen with Scot McCloughan as our new GM. He's already cleaning house. 6-10 is a very strong possibility though.

In the NFC South, I would not rule out the Panthers winning the division again.

If it adds any twists to the predictions, here are the opponents for each team in 2015:

Everyone always makes so much of a big deal when the schedules come out, but we know from the moment the previous season ends who will be playing whom the following year. All the schedule does is set dates and times.

I usually don't make predictions until after the draft and schedule release. Who you play matters, but the sequence in which you play them matters as well. With that said, I'm confident Manning's return for a 4th season in Denver means you can pencil the Broncos in for 11-5 and another trip to the playoffs, likely as the AFC West champ again. The bigger question is not can the Broncos make the playoffs, but will their new coaching staff get them over the hump once they get there? It certainly will not be easy.

Rex doesn't play. I think the Bills future is looking brighter, but no team in the AFC East will knock off the Patriots, especially in the playoffs. You can hope EJ picks it up, but Cassell is just a middle of the road QB, and even though he "knows" the Pats from his previous stint, that won't make the difference. McCoy could be interesting, but the Pats have in general done OK against big time RB's. If the Bills pick up a speed rusher, that will help their D very much. And I'm not so sure the Bills won't take a step back with a new coach and system.

Unless the Pats strip down their roster (yes, Wilfork is pretty much gone, and ? on McCourty and Revis), the dominance of a Brady/Belichick team will continue to dominate the AFC (not just East).
