WhatIfSports.com's NFL simulation engine provides predictions, box scores and statistics for every NFL game throughout the season. We used the simulation engine to project the Buffalo Bills' 2012 campaign by "playing" their actual 2012 schedule 1,001 times.

The statistical inputs to the simulation are based on rigorous analysis of every team's roster, depth chart and statistically-based player ranking. Roster modifications have been made to reflect all transactions as of June 1, 2012.
