The upstart Bills are making believers of many naysayers. They sit alone atop the AFC East one quarter of the way into the season. The defense is on fire, ranking first in the league with points allowed. The offense is performing credibly. Tyrod Taylor continues to impress with his mobility and precision. COACH McDERMOTT IS MAKING GOOD ON HIS PLEDGE TO PLAY OUR TAILS OFF THIS YEAR. THE TEAM IS NOT TANKING AS PART OF A REBUILDING EFFORT. A WILD CARD BERTH IS A POSSIBILITY AFTER 17 SEASONS OF FRUSTRATION. LOOKING FOR CONTINUED SPIRITED PLAY AND A SHOT AT THE PLAYOFFS, WE ARE ENCOURAGED AS 1BUFFALO.
