People's Poll: Will Bills improve on throwing interceptions?

By Tim Graham

Back from the long holiday weekend, let's celebrate our post Independence Day hangover with a reprise of the People's Poll.

This week's first installment comes from Kevin McCarthy (@MacTheBartender), who ponders how much different the Buffalo Bills' interceptionastic qualities will be in 2013.

Ryan Fitzpatrick threw 16 of them last year, tying him for eighth-most in the NFL for a team that ranked 23rd in pass attempts.

The Bills look like a team that could throw a lot of interceptions this year.

They have a rookie and Kevin Kolb playing in an offense run by a first-time NFL head coach and a first-time NFL offensive coordinator.

Kolb has a career 3.3 interception percentage. Fitzpatrick has thrown an interception on 3.6 percent of his career attempts.
