Fall is coming upon us, and for us sports fans, that can only mean one thing: Football is back. Training camp is coming to a close, the preseason is underway and we are just a few short weeks away from real, live football again. Halleluja!

Despite a 4-12 record last season, the Buffalo Bills showed a surprising amount of tenacity and grit. They hung in with some of the best teams in the NFL (Steelers, Ravens, Chiefs) and showed that while they may not be a playoff-caliber team yet, they can play with anybody in this league (except the Patriots—see: 15-game losing streak).

Coming into the 2011 season, the Bills had some major holes to fill on both sides of the ball, specifically in the trenches on the offensive and defensive lines. Changes have been made, but will it be enough to fix Buffalo's 32nd-ranked rush defense? Will it be enough to keep QB Ryan Fitzpatrick on his feet?
