Sports Illustrated's Peter King ranks his NFL from 1-32, and it's no surprise he has the Bills near the bottom, at No. 31, ahead of only St. Louis. Tampa is 30, Cleveland 29, Oakland 28 and Tennessee 27 (which seems a bit low from here). It's noteworthy how tough he views the start of the Bills' schedule. He has Green Bay No. 1.
The Bills open at home vs. Miami (ranked sixth by King), visit Green Bay (No. 1), play New England (a low No. 14), then face the Jets (No. 7). The Bills' fifth game is against No. 21 Jacksonville, then they face No. 3 Baltimore. New schemes on offense and defense and tough opponents - it all points to a slow start.
