Bills 2021 Season Preview

Allen and the Bills finished second in the league in total offense last year, averaging 396.4 yards and 31.3 points a game. The 25-year-old QB finished second in MVP voting behind Aaron Rodgers after completing 69.2% of his passes for 4,544 yards, 37 touchdowns and 10 interceptions. He also ran for 421 yards and eight scores, making him one of the best double threats in the league right now.

“I know a lot of guys have that sour taste still, and it’s pushing them and driving them,” Allen said, via ESPN. “Personally, me, that’s how I feel … we didn’t do enough to get the job done last year, so let’s find a way to be better this year and attack it that way. I have the same mindset and same mentality of [having a] chip on my shoulder. … the name of the game is winning championships. We won’t stop until we’re there, whether it’s working on the field or in the weight room and in the meeting rooms, just trying to be the best that we can be and give ourselves a chance.”

On defense, the Bills allowed 23.4 points and 352.5 total yards last season. Their 26 takeaways ranked 3rd in the NFL, and considering they have the majority of their starters returning, Buffalo should be dangerous on both sides of the ball.

Many have the Bills pegged to be Super Bowl contenders this year, but head coach Sean McDermott doesn’t want his squad to get ahead of itself.

“You’ve got to stay in the process of a week-by-week season,” McDermott told Sports Illustrated. “So if you focus on things outside this building, on things you can’t control … you get your tail kicked. So we’ve got to be mentally tough in our approach and focus in on our process and insulate ourselves as much as we can from all the other noise that is outside the building.”

  • Week 1: 9/12 vs. Steelers, 1 PM
