For over half of the league, today is both season-recap day and what-to-look-for-in-the-offseason day. Well, since Mr. McDermott came into town and drafted a certain quarterback in year 2, this day has become a day to dissect playoffs matchups for Bills Mafia. While Buffalo's top 5 rankings in both offense and defense are impressive, anyone who watches their games knows there have been two different teams playing for Buffalo this season.

If the hapless offense displayed against the Steelers, Jags, Colts, and the first game against the Patriots shows up, Bill Belichick will be back in a very familiar division round in two weekends. If the unstoppable offense displayed against the Dolphins (twice), WFT, Texans, Saints, and Chiefs shows up, Mac Jones might be sent home packing earlier than many thought.

The franchise seems to have figured out its run-woes on both sides of the ball, as the league's #1 defense has been more stout against the run since the return of their DL1Ts (Phillips and Lotulelei) and commitment to the rushing game on offense has led to a rushing average of 184 ypg at an impressive 5.3 ypc over the last 3 games (all victories of 12 points or more). Josh Allen has proven that he can-almost literally by himself-carry this team to victory, but the Bills' chances are clearly higher when Brian Daboll finds balance on offense.

After the team's defense let them down in the playoffs last year, it's likely to be the offense that does so this time around. That is, of course, if you all don't BILLIEVE this is finally the year...

BILLS HISTORICAL DRAFT PICKS

Reach/Value (R/V) Explained
The difference between where a player is selected in the NFL draft versus where the player was listed on the final Drafttek Big Board for the season in question.
Example: A player who was listed at #50 on the Big Board and was selected at #35 will be a "Reach" of -15. Alternately, a player listed at #35 on the Big Board who was selected at #50 is a +15 "Value".

Simply put: a positive number is a Value pick, a negative number is a Reach.
