Offense: The Buffalo Bills have reason to be optimistic in 2017. After unsuccessful seasons under Coach Rex Ryan, the Bills replaced him with Scott McDermott, ex-defensive coordinator of the Carolina Panthers. McDermott has an impressive track record and fans will see him as an energizing presence. The Bills also parted ways with GM Doug Whalen after the draft replacing him with Brandon Beane. Beane and McDermott come from the same organization so this continuity should ease the transition in the front office. The new look Buffalo Bills will return Tyrod Taylor at Quarterback. Taylor has been a steady performer and some believe he is still the quarterback of the future. The Bills continue to seek their first playoff berth in 17 seasons as offensive play-makers Sammy Watkins (WR) and LeSean McCoy (RB) provide adequate firepower sto compliment Taylor. McCoy returns after a Pro-Bowl season and once again should be the focal point of this offense.
Defense: The Buffalo Bills traded down in the 2017 NFL Draft but did select LSU cornerback Tre'Davious White. White should be an impact starter from Day 1. Under Doug McDermott expect the defense to make a big jump in 2017. The Bills also return leading tacklers, Preston Brown and Zach Brown. A notable departure will be cornerback Stephon Gilmore.
Schedule: In 2017, the Buffalo Bills face a formidable home schedule at New Era Field welcoming the New York Jets, New England Patriots, Miami Dolphins, Denver Broncos, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Oakland Raiders, New Orleans Saints and Indianapolis Colts.
